Jeff Van Gundy thinks Mickael Pietrus should be fined one million dollars for flopping

  • Jason Whitney

Jeff Van Gundy has made no secret of his dislike for flopping. We hear him countless times complaining on national TV about NBA players flopping like European soccer stars on the court. I don’t blame him. The flopping has been taken to new heights. Then again, so has Van Gundy’s proclamations.

In JVG’s newest outburst he claims the NBA should fine Mickael Pietrus $1 million dollars for his trickery against the Heat’s Mario Chalmers. I’m not sure I would go that far, but a fine should be in order. It is a disgrace what the NBA is turning into. It seems like all you have to do is slide underneath a player when he’s about to go up for an uncontested dunk or layup and just draw a little bit of contact and flop, then VOILA…OFFENSIVE FOUL!

  • I agree 100% that the flop thing has gotten out of control. The sad thing is, NBA players are the worst actors and yet the refs bite on it almost everytime. Now I might not agree with a $1 million fine, but a one game suspension for every flop would cut down on it, especially in the playoffs. Just think if there was a one game suspension everytime LBJ and D-Wade flopped, they wouldn’t of played past the first round. Maybe the NBA will wise up and do something bout it, before it loses all creditability.
