This is why this rule is pretty much useless ... it didn't prevent Billups to get 3 Fts and hugely impact a close game

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.

This is more a case of selling contact that was actually there though. LeBron did push off, and I guess Gerald felt he should make it more obvious. On plays like this, I'd let the warning slide, as there was actual fouling going on.

So each team has played around 20 games so far..... that means the NBA has played around 300 games overall this season. 300 games and Reggie Evans is the only Flopping fine so far.

This is a sham rule designed to appear to solve a problem pointed out by the fan base. It does nothing whatsoever if you don't start fining the ones who are flopping to truly gain an advantage like Paul, Manu, Griffin, Billups and other so called "Stars" who use flops to gain advantages in games. If they truly thought this was an issue there would be 25 to 30 fines and the names on the list would be a lot more recognizable.

bingo. i called it from the beginning. bs rule because it won't be enforced. and even when it is, billups's flop wins his team a game.

Refs have always missed calls and will continue to do so. They might get better over time (lol, one can hope), but NBA brass needs to do a better job of reviewing more games, calling out players, and handing out more fines.

If anything, Blake Griffin hasn't been playing that great, and it may be due to not wanting to get a flopping call this year. So maybe the rule has kind of worked, at least a little, if anything. :man1:

Blake Griffin should be a homeless man at this point from all the flopping, yet still no fines or not even a warning...
