Ok, here's the flaw in this logic. It's impossible to penalize flopping during the game because the refs think they are actually getting fouled. It's only after the replay is shown do we realize it's a flop. So are they going to replay every single foul to determine if it was legit or a flop? Are they gonna give each team 3 flop challenges? I agree that flopping needs to go away. I just don't see how it can actually be officiated during the game.
^^^ and what marsh said, which I obviously didn't see.
It's not easy, I agree.But it's not impossible either.
There are plenty of times the ref see obvious flops, where they simply let the play go on without blowing their whistle.
I'm just saying that in those instances, the ref can stop play and call a technical foul. The refs don't need to catch every single flop. NFL refs don't catch every single holding call.
However, the threat of a technical foul will be a much greater deterrence against flopping than any post-game fines will ever be.
Plus the NBA needs to add an extra ref
