The NBA handed down a flurry of discipline for flopping and flagrant fouls from Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, including a $5,000 fine to LeBron James.
Both James and David West were fined $5,000 for flopping on the same play from the fourth quarter of the Indiana Pacers' win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday. West was fighting for position on the play, and both recoiled when there was contact in the lane.
Earlier this week, James said there was a strategic advantage to flopping. - ESPN.com
"Some guys have been doing it for years, just trying to get an
advantage," James said Monday. "Any way you can get an advantage over
the opponent to help your team win, so be it."
