    Billy Bob = lakers? Chamber? How about we start calling him *Wario *Chamber? Are all lakers fan boys that dumb?

    @NoMilitaryCoup, I agree, so Ginobili will be the first to fine.. He flopped more than anyone in the NBA as evidence to being the originator of flopping.

  4. NoMilitaryCoup says:

    The fine for a flop should be increased during the playoffs and maybe even should be handed out based on a players salary

    For example, If someone is making a max salary they should be fined a maximum of $100,000 or something along those lines.

    $5000 is nothing to the big superstars of the league.

    These guys brag about how they dont want to be part of league with a bad image (such as the Sterling saga) yet they run around flopping like fish out of water.

    $5000 wont fix the flopping issue no matter how many times they are handed out

    Perhaps a pattern is developing here. The Spurs come in with a good game plan, lead often during the game. Are in it all game and fade/fail to close out the Heat in the final minutes. Game 6 and 7 last year and now this year (except for LBJ being out of the game with cramps in game 1.)

    With all the mental masturbation about the Heat not having a deep enough rotation or being a “one man” team, it appears that may be the biggest difference between these teams. Coaching?…don’t think so. Is Eastern Conference tougher?…don’t think so. Talent?….two evenly matched teams.

    For all you Heat/LBJ haters, you may need to consider the possibility it may be LBJ. While I don’t think it is fair to compare dominant players of different eras, he does what MJ, Bird, Johnson, Russell etc. did for their teams. He makes the plays at clutch time and his team mates better. He doesn’t need to take the winning shot every night and he often leads his team on defense.

    He has the option of opting out after this year. Doubtful he will leave considering the way he has been treated around the league. But if you’re a Spurs fan, take a moment and imagine LBJ playing for SA…..don’t think so.
