Omer Asik receives warning for flopping (VIDEO)

Omer Asik received a warning for flopping against Tim Duncan during the Rockets loss to the Spurs on Dec. 10, the league announced.

This is a good one, especially in slow motion.

As the shot goes up, Asik battles Tim Duncan for rebounding position. Duncan uses his forearm to keep Asik from the ball, and not only does Asik respond by flailing his arms and falling to the ground, but he lets out a yell to try to sell the play even more for good measure.

The league’s anti-flopping policy has in place a warning for the first offense, followed by fines beginning at $5,000 and increasing for each offense thereafter.
