So funny for griffin getting called out b/c he is a flopper. But I didn't see a flop on that particular play.

First players to get flopping warnings...Barea and Sloan.

Flopping fines go up from $5,000, 10,000 all the way up to $30,000. That can be a lot of moohlah for a player like Sloan. NBA...Pickin on the lil guys.

The Sloan flop was hilarious.

We'll see just how rigged this is if we can make it a month into the season and the pampered stars like Wade, Manu, Paul, Blake and Pierce have no warnings or fines..... while second tier players take the brunt of the new rule.....

Do you think come playoff time, they are going to suspend a marquee "flopper" I mean superstar and have them miss a playoff game in front of a nationally televise audience for flopping? I don't....

As you said, it's for the grunts, not the big dogs. You might see a slap on the wrist here or there, but that might be the extent of it.

^^Not going to happen..... well.... maybe..... could happen. I seem to remember twice in a month a certain "star" player got suspended for "following through aggressively" on missed 3 point shots.....

The Clippers are still the darlings of the league..... they are the poster child for what they wanted after the lockout... no chance they put Biff or Paul out of a game where Biff's commercials are being played twice every quarter.....

There's no chance they allow one of their golden children to get suspended for a game that can be a marquee game.

I think if the NBA WAS going to suspend a marquee player, it'd be for a game not on national television. For instance if Kobe was to get suspended for flopping they'd wait until we played Charlotte or some crap team like that.

I knew this would happen. Role players are getting the warnings and fines, but not stars, who actually flop way more. For example, CP3 should've been fined just for the game against us, he CLEARLY flopped like 3 times in that game.
Typical.

The NBA is highlighting every instance. Updating it every day.

With video evidence.

They're straight up calling these people out.

The best thing the NBA has done in a while.

where can I find who got warnings and highlights of the flops?

Reggie Evans gets fined.

For his second flopping offense, the NBA has fined Brooklyn's Reggie Evans $5,000, league source tells Y! Sports.

Loved it when Gerald Wallace flopped and MWP nailed a three while he's laying on the ground.

LOL WOW that is so shameful.

Starting to lose respect for Gerald Wallace this year.

What's funny is I don't recall him being a flopper before they put in this rule. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention to him.
