NBA warns Lakers’ Jodie Meeks for flopping

Jan 2, 2014, 7:05 PM EDT

Jodie Meeks — you know, one of the few healthy guards the Lakers have left on the roster — has been officially warned by the league for flopping.

As he should have been. You can see the play above — it’s late in the Lakers loss to Bucks New Year’s Eve and the Lakers were dreaming of a comeback. Milwaukee’s rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo got the ball on the left wing beyond the arc and swung through his elbows to create a little space, then used that to drive left. As the elbow came through — and it wasn’t close to hitting Meeks — he sold contact and flopped backwards.

For those of you scoring at home, that makes 17 NBA players warned for flopping this season and two of them went on to get $5,000 fines for a second offense — James Harden and Corey Brewer.

Not that the warnings or fines are slowing flopping.
