I think the rule is fair, as it is being introduced for the first time. Remember, after 6 flops, they can get suspended, so that's the kicker.

BTW, why do people still flop? Every inch of their movement is caught on camera in HD, televised to millions. It's just plain stupid. Guess it's hard to break certain habits.

Why?!... Chris Paul would be 2/3 the player he is without it that's why... He couldn't care less if you see it in HD.... all he cares about is the refs seeing it. He also knows the league won't fine a star for this.... your telling me it took 30 teams 10 games each to find a finable flop?..... come on... if they meant what they say the first quarter of a Clipper game is all it would have taken to get the money flowing......

Lmao if they heavily fined flops/suspened for them and called travels/carries, the league's guard positions would be the weakest in years.

With the camera thing, I also meant the league reviewing it after the game. I guess they still get away with it, but at least someone finally got fined for it. Let's see how many more times it'll happen...

It's blatant flopping, it should be a warning at the very least.

This doesn't mean it wasn't a flop. Refs just did their job and didn't fell for it.

I dont' mind flopping on charges too much. Everyone does that to draw the foul. It's the other blatant flops that should be fined, especially offensive ones (cp3).
