Gerald Wallace Fined $5,000 for Flopping

The first two NBA players fined for flopping are both Brooklyn Nets. Gerald Wallace joined teammate Reggie Evans in being financially dinged for what the League considered a flop (video of the offending play can be seen here.) The next fine would cost Wallace $10,000. The NBA also announced today that Chauncey Billups received a flopping warning: “Gerald Wallace of the Brooklyn Nets violated the league’s anti-flopping rules for the second time during the Nets vs. Heat game on Dec. 1, he has been fined $5,000.”

    It doesn’t make any sense that the NBA is fining floppers. The refs should be able to give technicals for flops in game. Sure, fining may stop flopping in the regular season, but during the playoffs, when players want to win no matter what, they will still flop because them losing money does not hurt the team’s chances of winning. However, if the refs could call technical fouls for flopping, then it would stop completely. Players would realize that flopping is risking their team’s success.

    i just saw the replay of that, this is chauncey’s go to move in the clutch, its really sad; he’s been doing this for atleast 8 years now in last minute situations. The best was when one time he pulled that same move on Marbury but Marbury didn’t even challenge the shot and Chauncey airballed the three pt attempt with his feet all flailing out looking like a super scrub

    Hard for a ref to judge what is/isn’t a flop in real-time though, easier for us to spot a flop on TV.

    I understand that, but its hard for refs to judge the difference between charges and blocking fouls…doesn’t stop them from making their calls.
