Competition Committee To Address Flopping, Expansion Of Instant Replay
David Stern equated flopping with trickery and said the competition committee will discuss ways to eliminate its prevalence.
"Flopping almost doesn't do it justice," Stern said Tuesday just prior to the start of the NBA Finals. "Trickery. Deceit designed to cause the game to be decided other than on its merits. We'll be looking at that.
"We'll be looking at a number of things that make it easier for us to say to our fans what we all know to be true: Our referees want to get everything right."
The committee will also consider expanding instant replay.
