They should of done this when hockey put in a similar rule when players dive in the NHL. So, the only sport left to put the flopping rule in place is soccer.

I thought this was going to be implemented before the start of this past season?

Yet another judgment call to be made by the refs.

Is there an ingame foul?

They should just hand out techs for flopping.

I heard theyre hiring someone for each game thats going to be the flop tracker, its not gonna be determined by the refs. They should be trying to get rid of it in the game by eiher calling blocks or giving out techs as well as the fines, but its a start.

What's wrong with flops..?
It's just another way to get a refs attention so a charge can be called because refs don't call charges sometimes.

When guys flail around like clowns when theres the littlest of contact and get the calls it ruins the sport. The game slows down, players get into foul trouble when they shouldnt and the whole complexion of the game changes because guys are diving instead of trying to play defence and the refs are bailign them out especially if theyre at home. Its pathetic and it isnt basketball.

Maybe this should only be applied to Ginobili, Kirilenko and Raja Bell..?
