West, Stephenson, LeBron Fined a Few Bucks for Flopping in Game 4

lebron-flop-westNBA dudes stay floppin’.

They stay floppin’ in a box
They stay floppin’ with a fox.
They stay floppin’ in a house.
They stay floppin’ with a mouse.
They stay floppin’ here or there.
They stay floppin’ anywhere.
They stay floppin’, you will see.
They stay floppin’, it’s all fakery.

LeBron James, David West and Lance Stephenson have all been fined $5,000 — making this, essentially, the millionaire equivalent of fumbling a dime on a hot day while getting change for an ice cream you bought and thinking to yourself, “Hmmm … nahhh,” and walking away without picking it up off the ground — for flopping in Game 4.

Well, not so much for Lance Stephenson. It’s actually 0.6% of his take gross pay this year, according to ShamSports salary figures.

The horror.

    I could be wrong, but to me it looked like he got hit back by James. Like I said I could be wrong, but that what I saw there. Also, where is the fine for wade? Are you kidding. It seems like he can do no wrong in the eyes of the NBA. SHEESH.

      I thought west reacted to James to make sure he didn’t get called for a foul on James’ flop- still a flop though so I’m cool with it.

      DWade isn’t so bad (except the baseline fall to the ground in game 3) as he drives recklessly into the lane looking for contact and subsequently hits the deck every time. But no Battier??!? COME ON!

  • Nathaniel Bogan

    Battier has been worse than anyone else in the series, he deserves a flopping fine.

  • Larry Whitmore

    How can they not fine Shane Floppier too???
