Remember when the NBA came out with stern language about flopping? (P)layers will face the possibility of stiff punishment for trying to trick the referees into a foul that wasn’t warranted. Commissioner David Stern issued an edict that he hopes will make flopping go the way of the four-corner offense and the short shorts.
The rule change hasn’t stopped league golden boy Chris Paul from trying to trick refs. How about this acting job last night against the Kings. As you can see, Paul acts like DeMarcus Cousins stuck a bullet in his back.
Expect Stern to react accordingly and act like the incident never happened.
As for the game, the Kings won, 116-101.
