NBA To Crack Down On Flopping

New, 12 comments

The NBA next season will begin imposing fines on players who are clearly "flopping" to draw a foul. I would say JJ Redick is bothered by this new rule but he never plays so it really has no impact on him. Rasheed Wallace, always good for a quote, made his feelings concerning flopping known in between the use of various unprintable words.

"All that bull(bleep)-ass calls they had out there. With Mike [Callahan] and Kenny [Mauer] -- you've all seen that (bleep)," Wallace said. "You saw them calls. The cats are flopping all over the floor and they're calling that (bleep). That (bleep) ain't basketball out there. It's all (bleeping) entertainment. You all should know that (bleep). It's all (bleeping) entertainment."

Good ol' Sheed. I never know if we should think he is awesome or be embarrassed by him. Probably a little of both.
