    The NBA is finally cracking down on floppers. I'm glad; I've hated to see the NBA turning into the drama queens we see in professional soccer.

    The first violation is a public warning, usually accompanied by the NBA releasing video for us all to see the flop. After that...

    Violation 2: $5,000 fine
    Violation 3: $10,000 fine
    Violation 4: $15,000 fine
    Violation 5: $30,000 fine
    For a sixth (or any subsequent) violation of the rule, the player will be subject to such discipline as the League determines is reasonable under the circumstances, including an increased fine and/or suspension.

    Here is the NBA's official video warning players and coaches about what they will penalize for flopping.
