| by Alex Groberman

The NBA made it clear this summer that blatant, embarrassing flops would no longer be tolerated. On Monday, two horrible early season flops were called out – publicly.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Donald Sloan were on the wrong end of two warnings by the league for their actions during showdowns versus the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls, respectively.

Check out both flops in the videos below:

If either player is caught flopping again, they will receive a $5,000 fine. If it happens a third time, the fine increases to $10,000. Fourth and fifth offenses would cost $15,000 and $30,000.
