Metta World Peace Demonstrates Flopping With Reporter [VIDEO]
Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace talks about the NBA’s new rule change with a group of reporters.
The NBA has adopted a new rule change regarding flopping in the league. The NBA will fine players retroactively for “any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player.” Players could also face a suspension if they are caught flopping six times. The NBA Players Association will be fighting this new rule change by arguing that the league should’ve been consulted first before the new rules were implemented.
Lakers forward Metta World Peace doesn’t sound like he’s a fan of the new rule change. He had some fun with a few reporters while being asked about the new flopping rule. Metta (formerly known as Ron Artest) charged into L.A. Times reporter Mark Medina. Luckily, Medina didn’t receive the elbow treatment that Metta gave James Harden last season.
