JR Smith Fined $5,000 for Flopping

The NBA announced today that they’ve hit New York Knicks guard JR Smith with a $5K fine for a flopping violation in Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers (here’s video of the flop): “The New York Knicks J.R. Smith has been fined $5,000 for violating the league’s anti-flopping rules during the Pacers vs. Knicks game on May 5.”

    He was exaggerating it, but West was moving on that screen

    when fisher got fined for that double flop with martin, did the league judge that martin wasn’t flopping since he didn’t get fined?

    Yep. Question is, does he get the call if he doesn’t flop?

    Martin was actually in position though. Fisher leaned in, pushed off, and flopped harder. Both were flops though.

    So by them saying its a flop, does that imply that it shouldn’t have been a foul? If it was a foul anyway, does it matter that he flopped? So many questions…

    Ok, now I need to see some fines for some Heat players.

  • slam?

    so should bron be fined when he flopped on that nazr push?


    you need to stop hatin pal

    How is that hating?
    They flopped, Marco also should get fined.

    Nazr never should have pushed him in the first place. He got the call to begin with. He knew LeBron couldn’t do anything back. It was a punk move..

    He should be fined $5k for sucking in the last few games. Party Boy’s priorities are all messed up. No different than in Denver.

    with 240 lb dude shoves you with two hands with force, how it that a flop? LeBron had just turned his head back towards nazr just as he got shoved. he wasn’t bracing for that.

    Couldn’t? LeBron chose not to do anything back. Don’t make it seem like Nazr hit a disabled man.

    in game 2 both Bosh and Bron flopped against Noah, and Battier has been flopping too. Lebron has 3 fouls in three games, 0 fouls in game 3. I don’t even think any of the whopping 3 fouls he has were defensive fouls too.
