Report: Lance Stephenson fined $5,000
As Indiana Pacers’ guard, Lance Stephenson, continues his campaign for a bid to the 2014 NBA All-Star game, he’ll have to do so with $5,000 less in his bank account, as the league has fined Lance ($5,000) for flopping.

Lance tried to pull off this little beauty on Monday night, during the Pacers’ win over the Golden State Warriors. The league saw (because they are watching), and since Lance had previously been warned for the offense, the next step cost him $5K.
Lance has put together an outstanding season for the Pacers, holding averages of 13.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game.
