BLOG: I REALLY Like The New NBA Flopping Rule

It's the beginning of a new era in the NBA. I think I like it.

Cleveland's Donald Sloan and Minnesota's JJ Barea became the first two players in league history to be warned about flopping.

Barea flew back after getting a forearm from Sacramento's Jimmer Fredette last Friday. His flailing made it look bad, but slow motion tells a different story.

Sloan fell to the floor after getting screened on the way up the court against Chicago. That, too, looked, looked much less severe in slow motion.

The next time these two players try their act on the officials they get a $5,000 fine. A third flop is worth $10,000, all the way up to $30,000 for five flops. Let's just hope the players and coaches don't treat them as fouls for sale. That would be a bad thing.

That's all for today. Enjoy the basketball!
