One game in and John Wall's fourth season is already associated with a flop.

No, not because of the Wizards' opening loss at Detroit. Rather, for a play in the game the NBA is cracking down on. First, the announcement, which is the first one handed out for flopping this season:

WAS guard John Wall receives flop warning, game played vs. Detroit on Oct. 30.

Second, the play, which came in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. As Wall dribbled-jogged up the court, Detroit's Kyle Singler ran by. The two collided, Wall hit the deck. Passing on ideas that perhaps there was a slip or unfair contact, the NBA ruled Wall had flopped.

For now it's just a warning. Another offense and Wall receives a $5,000 fine.

Acting classes are much cheaper.
