The NBA has made it clear recently that flopping is a big no-no, so it wasn’t surprising to hear the Association warned Patrick Beverly after his blatant flop against Sacramento on Sunday night.

On the one hand, you kind of have to respect Beverley’s commitment to going all-out on this flop. On the other hand: C’mon man!
Anyway, it certainly wasn’t a casual flop, and so the league warned Beverley — as it should. That doesn’t mean he was on board with it, though. In fact, one could surmise Beverley really isn’t having it at all based on his response to the warning on Twitter.
Ok ok ok ok you got me I flopped!!!! Can’t touch anybody this year gotta do something!!! https://t.co/1Z7sBA16hH

No sarcasm font warning required, there. Clearly, Beverley wasn’t trying to hide his snark.
