Originally written November 04, 2012 on Pass The Pill:
Last season, commissioner David Stern was fairly vocal about his concerns regarding flopping in the NBA. Now, there are rules in place to try to solve the problem. Flops will be reviewed, and players can be retroactively fined at an increasing rate with each flop. There are a few NBA players that we all figured would be in trouble with this. Blake Griffin is one of the most notable ones, and is considered one of the worst floppers in the league amongst stars. A lot of people are frustrated with it, and you can now add David Lee to the list. Look at the video below to see it for yourself: It’s tough to tell at first just by watching the video, but you can definitely see it in the slow-motion toward the end of the clip. Blake Griffin looked to get a little tangled up with David Lee, who retaliated accordingly. I’m sure there are players around the league who are happy with David Lee doing this. Blake is a very good player, and there’s really no need to flop around like he does. It has no place in the game, especially amongst some of the best players the league has to offer. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post David Lee Tells Blake Griffin To Stop Flopping appeared first on Pass The Pill.
