I want to see about 10 warnings go out a night due to flopping

The Wolves are my team and I love the numbers Barea has been putting up lately, but I totally agree on him being a flopper. He is one of the worst. He pulls that exact move on almost every contact.

Wow, as expected, peripheral players get warnings, while stars get the fouls!
It was foolish to think CP3, DWade, LeBron will get first fines. NBA takes care of their stars.

Only 2 flops in 80 games? They must only being giving warnings for ridiculous flops. Miami alone is good for at least 3 flops a game. When LeBron, Wade and Haslem start getting fined then you’ll know the league is taking this serious. Barea and Sloan getting slapped on the wrist isn’t going to stop the craftier players who are savvy enough not to make it so damn obvious.
