Brooklyn Nets guard C.J. Watson has been warned by the NBA for flopping following an out-flop-the-master performance Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Watson, after receiving contact from Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea, flung his arms and head backward in exaggerated fashion to draw the offensive foul call.

There was really never any doubt that Watson would get a warning for this one, if only because he -- like so few -- blatantly admitted to it after the game, noting that Barea a notorious flopper and that he wanted to give Barea "a taste of his own medicine." Watch his post-game interview, plus a replay of the flop, below.
