4:44 p.m. ET: Given the fact that Reggie Evans was prominently featured in the video the league showed to teams and media before the season started to demonstrate what would and would not be tolerated under the league’s new rules against flopping, the fact that he’s now likely to be the first player fined for it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
Evans received one of the first four warnings for flopping that’s been given out this season, and if after receiving a warning a player is determined to have flopped once again, they would receive a fine of $5,000.
The video clip above clearly features Evans “falling all over the place,” as Kobe Bryant might say.
It’s definitely a flop, but the thing about the league’s warnings so far is the fact they’ve been pretty subjective. The ones issued have unquestionably been for blatant violations, and this is certainly another one.
But there have been plenty of flops that have gone unpunished so far this season, so we’ll just have to see if this latest effort from Evans isn’t deemed severe enough, and ends up slipping through the cracks.
