The NBA is cracking down on the league's best actorsby Phil Picardi, Minnesota Public Radio
When the Timberwolves take on the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at Target Center, league officials will be on the lookout for floppers: Players who exaggerate the force of a collision with an opponent and make it appear that a foul has been committed.
Timberwolves guard J.J. Berea is a known flopper. He's been cited twice by the league and fined $5,000. If he flops again, it will cost him $10,000.
Britt Robson covers the NBA for Sports Illustrated.com. He talked to Morning Edition host Phil Picardi about why the NBA is concerned about flopping.
