NBA "Flopping" Down per article...

New NBA flopping rule getting the job done

IMHO, the takeway from this: "if you call it, the players will adjust".

Just want to clarify for others, but there's nothing for an NBA official to call...this is a League procedure after the fact.

When players/coaches are held accountable for their actions...they change their behavior.

When the NBA office enforced "flopping rules", look what happened.
When you enforce the coaches box - guess what happens?
When you enforce RSBQ principles - guess what happens?
When you enforce ANY rule - guess what happens?

My favorite officiating mantra applies: You Promote What You Permit
