Metta World Peace Is Happy NBA Flopping Will Be Fined

Metta World Peace Is A Hilarious Misogynist And Hates Flopping

May 18, 2012; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Oklahoma City Thunder players engage against Los Angeles Lakers players after an altercation between Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook (0) and Los Angeles Lakers small forward Metta World Peace (15) during the first half of game three of the Western Conference semifinals of the 2012 NBA Playoffs at Staples Center. Mandatory Credit: Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIREFor years, flopping in the NBA has been getting worse and worse, but the NBA is finally doing something about it!

Commissioner David Stern has decided that every game will be reviewed after they are done, and fines will be given to players who flopped.

(NOTE: If anyone knows how to apply for this job, let me know. It has to be the greatest job in the world.)

So, if this is enacted next season, no doubt there will be some poorer players in Los Angeles next season, like Steve Nash and Chris Paul, but there will also be some who really benefit, like Dwight Howard.

One player, Metta World Peace,  is so excited that he took to Twitter to express his feelings:


While a bit sexist, it’s hilarious, because no one likes a flopper.

Flopping slows down the game and causes unnecessary penalties, compromising the true competitive edge of each game.

Other sports, like hockey, have taken steps to end their flopping problem with Embellishment penalties. The NBA should certainly have this as well, and give it as equally an entertaining name, especially since hockey fans won’t be seeing Embellishment any time soon.

Many NBA fans are with Metta World Peace, and couldn't be happier about these new rules.

I respect everything you say and appreciate it.  Would be great to go team to team and analyze who is to benefit and who would not.  Might even report on past teams.  Danny Ainge, great flopper.  Then you have someone like Derek Fisher who could take a charge better than  anyone but also had that fine line of the flop too.  Really going to change the face of the game.  Gives people driving the lane more confidence while at the same time encourages the defender to be more aggressive.  Tip of the iceberg here.

Keep writing them.  You wrote with a sense of facts and sharp intuition.  Bravo!

Well thank you very much! That's a great idea! Would make a great series. Fish can definitely flop with the best of them! Hahah!

Hi PurrsAlot, Thanks for reading! You're completely right, people flop everywhere. This article was about the LA teams though, so that's why I only mentioned them. No LA hate here at all. You'll notice I only pointed out LA players who would benefit from it too. Keep bringing your strong opinions though. Love em!
