The only way you get these players to stop flopping is to threaten suspension because that's REAL money coming out of their pockets. 3 strikes and you're on the bench for a game without pay. That'll make any player think twice before taking a dive.

My point was to eventually have irritatingly high fine totals.

Just spewing out numbers, but start at 25%, then 50%, then 100%, then 200%, then maintain at 200% fine and also suspend a game.

My "logic" is that over-punishing will very quickly end the practice. The reward can not be higher than the risk, or else it will also be worthwhile to attempt.

What's hilarious is I just watched the clip, and it wasn't even the flop I thought he was going to fined for. I agree with including a game suspension after 3-5 flops. You have to include team penalties in order to stop these guys from blatantly flopping.

I'd like to see a special segment on every episode of sportscenter just playing the flops over and over with a commentary. Humiliate them. That would be worse than fining them.

This is a good idea, sadly most of the media are ******* and dont want to upset the players, owners, commisioner or whatever...

I wish that were the case. Harden straight up runs into people during his drives and feasts on the foul line. The calls he gets consistently, even though he's a known flopper, will probably stay about the same.
