The league can at least fine these guys. They need to show some type of sign that this is not acceptable. It's almost like what Van Gundy said last week, by them not doing anything it's almost like they are agreeing with it. I think it is impossible during the games, but they should review them after the game and fine these players accordingly. It ruins the integrity of the game.

Great post. 100% agree.

Wait for it to happen in a key moment of a playoff game and Stern will have the guys head on a pole in his front yard. (Like he's done before)

If anything good came of the Rockets getting an early offseason, it's not having to see their bunch of floppers anymore this season and Kyle Lowry crying about foul calls...or the PBP guys doing likewise about said foul calls.
