Wallace fined for flopping
GERALD WALLACE of the Brooklyn Nets was fined $5,000 by the NBA for committing his second violation of the league’s anti-flopping rule.
He became the second NBA player to receive a flopping fine this season, following teammate Reggie Evans, who two weeks ago became the first victim of the league’s new method of penalizing players who exaggerate or simulate contact in an attempt to draw fouls against opponents.
Wallace received his first warning from the NBA’s disciplinary office last Thursday, stemming from this play against Carmelo Anthony late in overtime during the Nets’ 96-89 win over the New York Knicks on Nov. 26. Noli Cruz
