Russell Westbrook receives flopping warning for play against the Clippers (VIDEO)

Russell Westbrook became the latest player to get tagged with a warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping rules, for this play that occurred during his team’s loss to the Clippers.

Westbrook flailed and attempted to exaggerate contact on a three-point attempt, when there didn’t appear to be much contact at all.

It’s honestly hit or miss in terms of when the league will deem it necessary to step in, and while Westbrook certainly tried to game the system here, his acting job isn’t nearly as egregious as some others we’ve seen, yet the penalty remains the same.
