Brooklyn Nets small forward Gerald Wallace has received a warning from the NBA for flopping in Monday night’s game against the Manhattan/New York Knicks. Wallace is now the second Nets player to receive a flopping warning: Reggie Evans has already received two this year.

Funnily enough, Wallace won ESPN’s much-heralded Flop of the Night award for his acting that night — on a different flop.

Here’s the video of the Flop of the Night winner, which came in the third quarter:

  1. I’m not sure that I’m a fan of this anti-flopping policy. How do you gauge it? Is that reaction of running into seven-foot Chandler unauthentic? Was flopping such an epidemic in the game?
