Flagrant foul

Lately the refs started to pay more attention on this kind of issues . Some teams react with fire, fighting all the way to the end. Most teams react with resignation, taking a seat and watching with disgust from the sidelines. A higher frequency has been noticed during the NBA playoffs.

Some other teams react with violence. Psychopathic, really. They can’t win, physically will hurt other players.

To be unsportsmanlike is to act in a manner unbecoming to the image of professional basketball. It consists of acts of deceit, disrespect of officials and profanity. The penalty for such action is a technical foul. Repeated acts shall result in expulsion from the game and a minimum fine of $1000.

A flagrant foul-penalty (1) is unnecessary contact committed by a player against an opponent.

A flagrant foul-penalty (2) is unnecessary and excessive contact committed by a player against an opponent. It is an unsportsmanlike act and the offender is ejected immediately.

The offender will be subject to a fine not exceeding $35,000 and/or suspension by the Commissioner.
