It looks like the most important thing on NBA commissioner David Stern’s agenda for the offseason is getting rid of flopping. Stern formed a special “competition committee” this year made up of coaches, owners and general managers to make it easier to get new rules and regulations passed. They have a number of items on their plate this summer which include broadening the scope of instant replay, taking a look at the lottery system and changing the rule on off-the-ball fouls, but most importantly: floppers.
“One option, Stern said, is a ‘postgame analysis’ in which a player could be penalized if it was determined he flopped. The league retroactively upgrades or downgrades flagrant fouls after review, and, along those lines, he said that perhaps a player could receive a message from New York saying: ‘Greetings from the league office. You have been assigned flopper status… No, I'm joking, but something like that. That sort of lets people know that it's not enough to say it's all part of the game.’"
Even the most dedicated San Antonio Spurs fan has to know that this new rule change is targeting one of their own.
