League adopts anti-flopping rules

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has announced anti-flopping rules that will fine repeat offenders. The league says that flopping will be defined "as any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player."

 

     Players will get a warning the first time, then be fined $5,000 the second time. The fines increase to $30,000 for a fifth offense. Six or more could lead to a suspension.

 

     Commissioner David Stern has sought to end flopping, believing it tricks the referees.
