Lance Stephenson fined $10,000, Roy Hibbert $5,000 for Game 5 flops (VIDEO)

May 29, 2014, 4:00 PM EDT

The second Lance Stephenson tried to draw a foul on LeBron James during Game 5 Wednesday with the obvious flop you see above it was just as obvious a fine from the league was coming.

It did on Thursday — $10,000. The league made it official and noted the $10,000 amount was because this was Stephenson’s second called out flop of the Eastern Conference Finals (both on LeBron).

Lance’s flopping just seems an extension of his blowing-in-the-ear, jumping-in-the-Heat’s-huddles style. It’s just Lance being Lance and we all shrug.

Roy Hibbert was fined $5,000 on Thursday for a flop in the same game —Hibbert took a casual elbow in the back from Mario Chalmers and went flying like he was shot out of a cannon.

Give credit to the officials, who didn’t call the foul the Pacers were trying to draw in either case.
