No my solution is for players to play defense like MAN and not fall on the floor like a wussie. There is nno flopping in street ball so why the NBA?

Seems like free points

Some fouls the first 5(?) of a half(?) don't necessarily result in free throws. It isn't until a team is in the penalty (after 5? fouls) that every foul results in free throws. So, there might be certain situations that a team would foul another team to maybe stop the play and send it to an in bounds play from out of bounds.
