Reggie Evans warned for flop 

Post#1 » by Bertrob » Sun Nov 18, 2012 6:30 pm

Evans and Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger were battling for rebounding position after a Brooklyn miss early in the second quarter. As the two attempted to untangle, Sullinger threw his hands up in the air and Evans -- untouched -- flailed to the ground looking for a whistle.

I'm kinda surprised Evans wasn't the first player to be warned. He's up there in the Blake Griffin territory when it comes to epic flopping.

It's about damn time. He's a 'big-time' flopper.

I think its seriously working. I haven't seen any real real obvious flops this whole season..

I think all the players are scared to be the first player ever to be fined for a flop.

I think we need an official thread on flopping. This will be a weekly occurrence. I know it was Martin the other day.

But the league needs to target marquee players to make a difference. Only warning role players / 3rd stringers sends no message.

Agreed on both accounts.

I don't know if "target" is the right word, but they do need to make sure they're calling it equally on the stars as they do the backups that they have been so far.

Knew he was going to get warned when I first saw it in-game. A terrible flop and IIRC the announcers even called him out for it.

Kevin Martin also just was warned for flopping on a 3 point shot attempt which he hit all 3 FTs for late in an eventual 2 pt Thunder win.

Especially when you're giving guys like Wade/LeBron/Paul passes and free calls for THEIR flopping... Wade can drive in the lane and no defender is near him and he's going to get a foul call whether he makes the basket or not. It's so blatant and then you're going to give fines and warnings to the not-so-marquee players? Won't change a thing till officiating is fixed.

Tbf to Reggie Evans, this was his first real flop of the season. He has kept his flopping down a lot with the new anti flopping system.

Reggie can't afford to be flopping. That 15k could be a mortgage payment for him.

I like how they are embarrassing these guys by releasing the details to the media and putting up the plays on NBA.com

If this doesn't work then they can start issuing technicals for flops.
