Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma were warned by the NBA for violating the new anti-flopping rule during their team’s 115-105 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Feb. 13 (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
Both James and Kuzma dramatically fell to the floor after barely being touched by the Grizzlies in an effort to draw fouls, reports Sports illustrated.
The NBA started the anti-flopping rule during the 2012-13 season, which includes a warning for the first offense, a fine of $5,000 for the second, $10,000 for the third, $15,000 for the fourth and $30,000 for the fifth.
