Chalmers fined for flopping


Mario Chalmers’ travails with the NBA’s league office continue.

Already on notice that his next flagrant foul will result in a suspension, the Miami Heat point guard on Thursday was cited for his second flopping violation of the season, which resulted in a $5,000 fine. Chalmers’ theatrics came with 5:54 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat’s 116-112 victory Wednesday night over the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.

Now if the NCAA would start penalizing players for flopping - cough cough Marcus Smart cough cough

A big 12 title will clear up that cough right away.

Smart just learns from the best.... Chalmers! funny how irony works some time.

And Chalmers learned from LeBron, and I don't know who LeBron learned from.

Maybe LeBron learned from all the bigs who squared up against Shaquille ONeal.

Darn, you beat me to it! It's funny, living so close to Stoolwater as I do, hearing the diehard OSU fans defend Smart's theatrics. They know it's a losing argument, yet they can't help themselves.

Stoolwater. That's gold right there. Well played

It's amusing and I get it - rules are rules - and I have flashbacks of Dennis "The Worm" Rodman and even Sasquatch Shaq flopping all over the place - giant men like that throwing themselves onto the commentators' table. What a riot
