Chris Bosh Fined $5,000 for Flopping Last Night

Categories: Sports

Chris Bosh woke up last night and helped the Heat to a monster victory over the San Antonio Spurs, but it appears his flopping game is still a little rusty.

NBA officials announced Bosh would be fined $5,000 for flopping during a play late in the first half.

Here's the play in question:

This is the first year in which the NBA is fining players for flopping, and LeBron James was hit with a $5k fine back in the Pacers series. But Bosh's flop still made history: he's the first guy to get fined for flopping in the finals.

But Bosh better get his acting skills in line. A second flop costs $10,000 and it only goes up from there. Players can get suspended for six or more flops in the playoffs.

When Bosh flopped, he looked like DJ Jazzy Jeff getting thrown out of Philip Banks house. Haha

Idk what's worse, this or the dunk that couldn't beat the buzzer at halftime. As long as he keeps playing like he did yesterday, no hate will be directed towards the Bosh-trich
