Marcin Gortat Fined $5,000 for Flopping

Washington Wizards big man Marcin Gortat was slapped with a $5K fine Thursday by the NBA, this after violating the anti-flopping rules for a second time this season.

The violation took place in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s 88-84 Wizards victory against the Utah Jazz.

Gortat, naturally, took it all in stride (and playfully responded to his critics through social media.)
