NBA Passes Rule Against Flopping

The NBA has recently announced a new policy to combat flopping.

Flopping,as defined by the NBA, is "any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player." (as seen here)

Players will be given a warning for their first offense, followed by a $5k fine for their second offense, $10k for their third, $15k for their fourth and $30k for their fifth fine.

For violations after the fifth incident, players can receive an increase fine and/or suspension.
