    Coaches will just tell their players that their teams will pay them back under the table for any fines they incur for flopping.

    This seems questionable to me.

    Was over extravagant, but not really fine-worthy IMO. Plus it was against Tim Duncan so he should get a free pass.

    I agree with the fine. The exaggerated, unnecessary flailing is what they are trying to get rid of. There is no need for it.

    If you want the refs to see it and call it, you have to exaggerate it. NBA officials are the worst in pro sports.

    Anytime you forcefully extend your arms and any movement is expected from a nearby zone, then all is far-game for the right of establishing position. This is especially true when it involves both players in a forward movement. I still think the key is forward movement and not lateral or stationary positioning. This was a bad call.

    Also, there is no quicker sport that involves such a small containment factor. I say that NBA refs are the best decision makers in all of sports. They truly have a substantive heritage that evokes the maturation level equal to the riddle from Sphinx toward Oedipus and through the rough of time contorted the flow of staff...the best was called: Pied Piper.
