Iman Shumpert latest to receive warning for violating league’s anti-flopping rule (VIDEO)

Nov 9, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

It seems as though the league has been cracking down on flopping a little bit more than it did a season ago, at least through this campaign’s first couple of weeks.

A handful of players have already been issued initial warnings for violating the anti-flopping rule, and Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks became the latest to be added to the list.

The offending play occurred in the second quarter of the Knicks’ win over the Bobcats on Friday, and despite the aggressive nature of the swinging elbow from Gerald Henderson and Shumpert’s close proximity, no contact was made, so the exaggerated response from Shumpert qualifies as a legitimate violation.
