Floppers should be punished and this is a good step in that direction. I wouldn't be surprised if the flopping foul ends up being rarely used but carries a harsh penalty like a technical. As for the goaltending rule, coaches and commentators have been saying it should be like it is in Europe for years now. You still can't touch the ball on a downward arc or pin lay-ups on the glass. It means that you lose shooters' bounces, but it brings back the importance of the big man in a guard dominated league. Honestly I think they should bring back hand-checking.
