Article Photos: Breaking down the flop in the NBA 1/1

FILE - In this Feb. 20, 2012, file photo, Phoenix Suns center Marcin Gortat, left, of Poland, falls backward to the floor as Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee, right, is called for a charge in the third quarter of an NBA basketball game in Phoenix. The NBA will penalize flopping this season, fining players for repeated violations of an act a league vice president says has "no place in our game." The league said Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012, that flopping will be defined as "any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player."
