I remember this- Harden actually created contact against Blake, and then just fell down on his own to trick the ref to call it against Griffin. roll That's his second flop officially noticed by the NBA already this season.

That was an Epic flop, Blake was so Impressed by it to, he didn't even argue with the ref, mainly because they were up though.

LMAO at that video though.

The fine isn't significant enough to dissuade Max contract guys from flopping.

Yeah. They should obviously means-test these fines. Veteran's minimum equates to roughly $15,000 per game, so they should make it something like 25-30% of a game check. That would stop it FAST.

That would never happen, the players union would never allow it, and it's not really the players fault. Ref's are the one's that should be fined or disciplined. You can't blame players for pushing the limits on what they can and can't get away with, it's part of every sport. I for one don't mind it that much, it bother's me at times, but Mainly I'm impressed, plus if you aren't cheating, you aren't trying.

This Harden flop was amusing in that Blake just knew Harden had just tricked the ref into calling a foul against him. Thankfully this mega flop didn't affect the game. It would have been maddening if it did.

I don't understand how it's the ref's fault, It's called cheating. If Blake had fouled out and we lost the game because of a flop everyone would have minded.

It is against the rules, as they are now stated, to intentionally fall down. Breaking the rules is called cheating.

Honestly, I think Harden slipped. Looks like he tried to plant his left foot, and it went out from under him. Could have been intentional for all I know, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt in the same way that I'll appreciate the benefit of the doubt on CP3's "flop" last year when DeMarcus Cousins stepped on his foot while running down the floor.

That's like saying a guy assaulted you by hitting you in the fist with his face. Harden didn't slip. This is his second obvious flop. He was warned for the first.

I stopped boxing because I learned how to block a left hook with my jaw.. Not good strategy
