    Billups did flop several times but and initially was wondering if it is per offense or per game cause I was thinking the same thing, that he himself could get the warnings and find all in this one game, not even mentioning the rest of the flop angles clippers could get.

    Then I calmed down (somewhat) and realize that IF the NBA even reviews it that probably only 2 of them are worthy of being enforced.

    I answered this somewhat in the game thread that only Reggie Evans had been fined and the only notable players that have even been warned are Gerald Wallace and Kevin Martin but no star players like the Clipps have.

    As much as people are bashing Billups, the real criminal here is Bavetta who fell for it. You'd think a guy whose reffed since the Syracuse Nationals have been around would know not to buy that crap, but Bavetta is so dumb he falls for it every time.

    If you watch the replay, you would see Bavetta's hand went up to signal the foul just before "the contact" was even made. He saw Mo flying in the air and made up his mind to call before even seeing there is one.

    What the hell is Mo doing going for a block on a 3-point shot anyway? That should be the real question here...just run past him (or casually walk out towards him) like every Jazz player has ever done since the history of forever.

    Interesting but I think he was holding up his hand to indicate a 3 point attempt.

    he actually did the jump-to-the-side challenge, specifically to avoid contact. mo didn't even come close to making contact, until billups found him with the left leg - a play that is supposed to called an OFFENSIVE foul.

    Ever since they announced the policy I've stated that this is to be selectively enforced. It's simply another way the NBA can assert influence over games but continually score PR points by packaging it in such a way that the league is 'correcting problems' and taking every step feasible to 'maintain the integrity of the game'. You will never see a big name guy get fined. Only the kind of guys who are a slump (or a flopping fine) away from being sent to the D-League.

    Out of all the calls that have hosed us over the years, those two were the most blatant and stung the most (and they were in the same damn game).

    That was a terrible flop. And Mr. Bavetta is what, like 100? Flop + cataracts = bad game changer

    I don't even know which ref made the call, but it makes sense that it would've been the blind one.
    You know squat. You know less than squat. You and Squat could go to the movies and Squat could wear an "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt!

    He'd have already pissed himself and been sitting on the bench with an "injury".
