Dwyane Wade fined $5,000 for flopping
MIAMI - Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat became the latest recipient of a flopping fine from the NBA on Monday, ordered to give up $5,000 after the league found he over-exaggerated a foul charged to San Antonio's Manu Ginobili in Game 2 of the finals.
It was already the fifth flopping fine assessed by the NBA during this postseason. There were a total of six fines for flopping in the entire regular season.
Wade's flop came in the second quarter when he reacted excessively on a play where Ginobili was whistled for the foul. Ginobili appeared to take a swipe at the ball as Wade controlled it, and the Heat guard spun backward like he had been struck.
The foul was Ginobili's third of the half, sending him to the bench.
