Hilarious how LeBron and David West both flopped on the same play :man10:
Instead of a double foul it's a double flop :mhihi:

And that Stephenson flop...just horrible :man10: :disagree:

Some guys are reaching out to Hakeem for help with their post game. Other guys need to reach out to Vlade for help with their flop game.

It will continue until they start suspensions for it. A fine to a player making playoff $$ is nothing. If they advance because of pre-meditated flopping the playoff $$ will buy 6 or 7 more flops in the finals..... Now take a player off the floor and all of a sudden the other players will put pressure on them to stay in line.

SAS said Lebron isn't a flopper so Lebron won't be doing that anymore. :man11:

5 g's for Lebron is like 5 cents to me :man10:

^that's different. Wade is playing injured. In fact he is so injured his body can barely hold up so he probably just failed him. He is such a soldier I say.

I'm stunned that they fined LeBron, but I guess after he talked about flopping and how it was part of the game and ok to do, they had no choice.

^funny enough I thought about his comments when I saw them fine him. Like Punk asked Wade didn't get fined for that fall out of bounds flop. Bron basically dared the league to fine him and they really had no choice. Even these fines are a blackeye on the league and their BS rules because everyone knows the only reason they fined Lebron is because the double-flop is being talked about so much.

Im not gonna criticize the fine and how insignificant it is to a guy like Lebron since its been in place all along.

I do find it funny that they're fining him only after he said that flopping isn't a problem tho. "Here's a slap on the wrist to remind you not to say those things in public". Very first game after his comments they find evidence that he flopped.

Are they saying that this is the first time they've looked at Lebron/Miami games for flopping, or that they just flat out have done a terrible job of enforcing their rules? Because I know they cant seriously be saying that this is the first time a Miami Heat player has flopped this season, since this their first fine I believe.

Man, it is such a fine line. To me, both lebron and west were just exaggerating the contact. I do agree it is excessive but all players exaggerate contact. So i guess the line is on where the exaggeration was deemed over execcsive rather than just whether there was in fact an exaggeration.

I understand why they're fining Stephenson for that, I just think, it gets really iffy. Every player screams foul and waves their arms around when they're cleanly stripped.

What's the difference? (Not arguing they are the same, but trying to get some ideas on why Stephenson exaggerating contact when there was none, is any different than any other time a player exaggerates contact when there was none).

Here's the line to me. Was there a foul on the play? If so, a player is allowed to exaggerate contact all they want, in order to get the refs to notice the play. Was there no contact worthy of a foul call, or in fact any contact at all? Then you're a flopper if you try to get a foul called. To me, LeBron flopped in the most shameless of ways, while West merely tried to bring attention to LeBron's hand slapping him across the face. That's where the fine-able line should be, imo.

Ok, just to go along with that. When a player gets cleanly stripped, or blocked on a shot attempt, is it considerable an offense punishable by a fine to exaggerate or fake contact in an attempt to draw a foul then? I mean every player does that when they get stripped. Kobe, Dwight, Pau, all of them. Kobe and Pau especially do the old shrieking war cry even when they are cleanly stripped or blocked.

On the other hand, what did you think about that Tony Allen play? He was actually fouled... but he pretend as if the foul was substantially worse than it really was and he was fined for it. Now, I happened to agree with that one, but I'm having a hard time drawing a line because EVERY player will exaggerate contact even when a foul actually occurred.

I suspect a couple more fines from the last game, one more on Lebron.
