Indiana Pacers Head Coach Calls the Heat the Biggest Floppers in the NBA, Fined $15,000

Indiana Pacers Head Coach Frank Vogel has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for his comments on the Miami Heat. On Friday Vogel said the Heat are “the biggest flopping team in the league.”

Via CBS Sports:

“They are the biggest flopping team in the NBA,” Vogel said on Friday. “It’ll be very interesting to see how the referees officiate the series and how much flopping they reward. Every drive to the basket, they have guys not making a play on the ball, but sliding in front of drivers. Oftentimes they’re falling down even before contact is even being made. It’ll be interesting to see how the series is officiated.”

Good job Vogel, giving the Heat extra motivation to crush your team. I’m very interested in seeing how the Pacers do when they play a team not missing their leading scorer. The Heat won the season series against the Pacers, 3-1.

It’s kind of crazy that Vogel would call the Heat the biggest-flopping team in the league considering that earlier in the season he named James the best defensive player in the world. I got on him because — at that time — Dwight Howard had won the Defensive Player of the Year three years in a row. Awfully big change in opinion he’s had.

Heat in five.
