He's right. Wallace should be ashamed of himself. NBA better fine him for BOTH flops. Ridiculous.

HAHA gotta love that from MWP.

Forgot about those Gerald Wallace flops because Reggie Evans' flops were so awful.

Both guys should get fined. Period.

3rd quarter I believe. Right before Artest missed an open three (following a second consecutive Wallace flop) from the top left corner of the arc.

Dantoni at the presser said he want's MWP to shoot 10 threes a game because he's gonna get them, and make 4 of them easy.

In fantasy basketball land.....MWP's stock is going through the roof right about now.

Nothing I hate more than somebody that disrespects the game like that. 6'8 250 flopping on the slightest contact. I wish this was the 80s-90s and someone could just level that POS and get a simple foul call for it.

Hmmm......Clippers last year a bunch of ridiculous floppers with their ringleader CP3. Reggie Evans a Clipper last year. Old habits hard to change and maybe he didn't think Darth was serious. For someone who likes to grab them, he has no balls :man10: (love that quote from Kobe last year)

You can't really compare him to Kobe, I mean he's only making $1.2 million a year compared to Kobe's near $30 million salary. Let's say after taxes he has about half, these flops could begin to add up.

I don't know you kind of have to put it into context. Evans makes about 1.7 mil this year so for an average joe making 40k a year lets say, that's like having to pay a $113 fine. Would you be happy about having to pay that? Probably won't kill you but it would suck.

well when they get fined $25,000 for removing their jersey, $5,000 for flopping seems kinda low. I mean flopping can change an entire games outcome while removing a jersey (like Bynum did) is just out of frustration anger etc and has no affect on the outcome of the game.

well if he flops 3 more times it will cost him 35k. That should hurt his pocketbook quiet a bit. ITs not like the guy makes Kobe money.

Contained in this link's article:

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/stor ... ng-charges

Bryant, who made it clear, "I don't flop," echoed Stern's remarks.

"There's a difference [between taking a charge and flopping]. We all know what flopping is when we see it," Bryant said. "The stuff that you see is where guys aren't really getting hit at all and are just flailing around like a fish out of water. That's kind of like, where are your balls at?"

Yikes, Metta kinda just called Kobe out, said he played well, but that everyone needs to be involved in the offense so the Queens have to use all their players on D and tire out. Can't say he's wrong, but Dwight and Pau weren't exactly fighting to get shots, the ball was a hot potato in their hands.

Metta is in better shape than anybody on the team. Gotta respect his hustle.

Meh. He's been playing well the last two games. I'm surprised, actually. I was one for trading or amnestying him. Hopefully, he keeps it up...

He's been one of the more consistent players on the team, hopefully this continues and his numbers improve when Nash returns.

That's a good point. I think Kobe once got a $100.000 fine for saying something offensive to a referee, can't remember what it was but it wasn't that long ago.. Not saying it should be that much, but it could certainly be higher than 5k.
