Gerald Wallace fined for flopping
The NBA has hit Gerald Wallace in the pocket book once again.
Less than a week after slapping the Nets swingman with a $35,000 fine for escalating the altercation between the Celtics' Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries, the league slapped Wallace with a $5,000 fine for his second flopping violation. The play occurred in the Nets' loss to the Heat in Miami Saturday night.
The Nets are the only team with multiple players fined under the anti-flopping rules that were instituted before the season. Reggie Evans has already been hit with a $5,000 fine as well.
