NBA Flopping Needs To Go Away [NoeBrainer]

NBA commissioner David Stern stated on Sunday that steps need to be taken to stop flopping.  Preach on, Dave.

David Stern mentioned during the Pacers-Heat game on Sunday that flopping in the NBA is a problem.  “I think it’s time to look at (flopping) in a more serious way,” Stern said, “because it’s only designed to fool the referee.  It’s not a legitimate play in my judgment.  I recognize if there’s contact (you) move a little bit, but some of this is acting.  We should give out Oscars rather than MVP trophies.”

Stern also mentioned that he told the competition committee years ago that the league should start fining people for flopping, and then suspend players who flop repeatedly.  Amen, Stern.  I got on my soapbox today on “The Noe Show” in full support of Stern’s stance.  I don’t see what’s wrong with cracking down on players who flail around like pansies in an effort to make the game tougher and more respectable.
