James Harden has long been regarded a bit of a flopper, but now, he’s officially one.
Harden has been handed a flopping warning by the league after exaggerating contact against the Trail Blazers on Nov. 5.
On the play, Harden was attempting a jumper as Wesley Matthews contested it. Harden threw his head back to signal contact to the face, though Matthews never made contact.
Harden’s next flop will cost him $5,000.
