NBA commissioner David Stern says he's pleased with the season but still will be examing issues such as flopping in the offseason. Is flopping a big problem?
bberkey: "At least the flops are being addressed. Perhaps traveling and the charge (moreso the big strong guys plowing over the smaller ones, even though they are in position to take the charge, but since they get blown up due to size, they get the foul) baby steps, but perhaps the NBA can get back to playing basketball at some point."
45salvatore: "Stern is a good commissioner. Best there's been. Yes, flopping has to go. Heat use it way too much along with acting like they are hurt to get flagrants called on other teams."
lenbrooks33: "I like Van Gundy's idea of extending the restricted area. Less room to flop and could open game up more."
darkyam: "The reffing needs the most work, particularly cutting down on flopping."
yakaholic: "Whatever the NBA does to identify flopping at the instant it happens, they should also review the game film afterwords much like the NFL does on bad hits. Flopping calls that draw fouls would be assessed a technical foul and if you get three in a series, you sit a game."
Janethan23: "One thing the league should eliminate is the proliferation of this FLOPPING junk people considers an art form. Gone were the days when players on defense defended opposing players going for a dunk or lay-up by actually jumping with them to try and block the attempt; now, most choose to just go in their path and roll the dice and hope for a charge."
