"Reggie Evans has received a warning for violating the league's anti-flopping rule during the Nets v. Celtics game on Nov.15. NBA.com"

with a video of the flop in all it's glory:

I feel like since the NBA is reporting these, we should do a fantasy draft. Like a "pick a team of three, and the total amount fined at the end of the year wins"

Evans would be the #1 overall pick

Ehh, I might take Ginobili over him.

Gotta consider the star player factor though, no one gives a bleep about Evans, he's prime "make an example" material.

That said, Manu has the money not to care, so he might keep flopping where Evans has to stop to avoid fines

I'm actively considering doing this game now.

I guess that's a little bit if justice, but sheesh! The refs seem to hate Sully! He gets called for fouls every game for just standing there with his arms straight up. I know he's a rookie, but these are overboard.

This was a top ten worst flop I've ever seen... I love the fact Evans gets warned, but it still doesnt make up for the call in game. I still think more can be done about flopping, "in the moment" so to speak, in the game.

If memory serves me correctly, I don't think that Evans did get that call in the game.

He inspires the same emotions (with less talent) than players like KG and Verajao.

If they're on your team you love'em, if they are not, you despise them.

Ha!  That was funny!  He's the king of looking like somebody suddenly shot him from the crowd after being mildly touched.

He got a double foul called on Sullinger and himself.

No, KG and Varejao are tough whereas Reggie Evans is a flopper. KG would never, ever flop. He will deck you, cheap shot you, trash talk you into going at him, but he would never flop.

I'm pretty sure KG has flopped on a occassion, too much a veteran to have not done so.

But he's certainly not a flopper. Cheap shot guy, okay I can see that. Reggie Evans combines AV/KG with the constant flopping around trying to get a call because he knows he doesn't play enough for his foul trouble to matter.
