For NBA flops, let players police themselves?

The NBA’s new 11th commandment: Thou Shalt Not Flop.

Those adjudged by the league’s top cop, Stu Jackson, to have shamelessly attempted to induce officials into calling unwarranted offensive fouls by virtue of what the late, great Johnny Most used to label “phony flops,” will be subject to a succession of fines. First offense will carry a warning. A second will cost someone $5,000, a third $10,000, a fourth $15,000, and a fifth — now this guy would have to be an incorrigible — $30,000.
