• Cuban unsure fining repeated floppers will work

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Oct 5, 2012
    Count Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki and owner Mark Cuban among those who believe the NBA's new plan to fine repeated floppers could be, well, a flop. "If it just causes the refs to give floppers the benefit of the doubt knowing the league can deal with it after the fact, it could have some unintended consequences. "It depends on whether or not it changes how flopping in game is called," Cuban replied to ESPNDallas.com in an email from Berlin. "A big question is going to be how much depth of explanation is going to be given when a fine is [assessed] and whether or not the league will enforce teams paying the fines for the players who get caught flopping."
