League May Strengthen Flopping Penalty
Before a minute of the 2013 NBA Finals had been played, Commissioner David Stern addressed the flopping that has drawn so much attention in earlier rounds of these playoffs.
Stern, who will retire in February, brought up strengthening the flopping penalty even though the fine escalates during the playoffs.
“We could end it immediately if we decided to suspend players,” Stern said. “But that might be a little Draconian at the moment.”
