It may only be the preseason, but the NBA is apparently already warning players about flopping. As we know, the league intends to take acting jobs very seriously this upcoming season. Or that’s the intention, at least. The league has announced it will review potential instances of flopping after games and fine players accordingly, similar to the way technical fouls are upgraded or downgraded after reviewing film.
According to Golden State Warriors point guard Jarrett Jack, the league has already begun cracking down.
So I’ve been warned for flopping hahaha smdh

The Warriors played the the Nuggets on Monday night, so we’re guessing the play in question must have occurred then. Although Dirk Nowitzki recently ripped the new rules and other players undoubtedly feel the same way about them, at least the NBA is making an effort to inform players about what will earn them fines once the regular season begins. Clearly someone like Jack can’t say he wasn’t warned.Google+
