Chris Bosh Fined $5,000 for Flopping Last Night
Chris Bosh woke up last night and helped the Heat to a monster victory over the San Antonio Spurs, but it appears his flopping game is still a little rusty.
NBA officials announced Bosh would be fined $5,000 for flopping during a play late in the first half.
Here's the play in question:
This is the first year in which the NBA is fining players for flopping, and LeBron James was hit with a $5k fine back in the Pacers series. But Bosh's flop still made history: he's the first guy to get fined for flopping in the finals.
But Bosh better get his acting skills in line. A second flop costs $10,000 and it only goes up from there. Players can get suspended for six or more flops in the playoffs.
