Wizards' John Wall receives flop warning
John Wall is the first flopper of the the NBA season.
With all the new points of emphasis across the league, flopping has kind of been overlooked. But the league is still watching.
And John Wall is the first offender of the 2013-14 season.
Video of the play is available here on NBA.com.
The NBA announced Thursday Wall has been warned for flopping for a violation against the Pistons in their opener Oct. 30.
The flop rules are the same this season as they were last season. Wall receives a warning for his first offense, but will be fined $5,000 the next time he's caught flopping.
