The NBA has fined Nets forward Gerald Wallace $5,000 for his second violation of the league’s anti-flopping policy on Wednesday.  His second violation came during the third quarter of a loss to the Heat in Miami on Saturday. Wallace was defending Heat All-Star forward LeBron James at the free-throw line extended, when James drove hard left towards the hoop. Wallace absorbed minor contact from James’ right arm but launched himself backwards to the ground, throwing his head backwards as he fell.  James was whistled for an offensive foul on the play. – Watch video on NBA.com. If Wallace violates the league’s anti-flopping policy a third time, he will be fined $10,000  via Ben Golliver
