Boston’s Marcus Smart is one of the league’s more notorious floppers.
He was at it again Monday night against the Houston Rockets — and the league called him on it and gave him a warning.
It happened on the game’s final play — you were probably focused elsewhere, wondering how Al Horford could miss the game-winning layup. But watch Smart as he gets in position for the rebound on that shot.
The referees didn’t buy it then.
This warning is barely a slap on the wrist. If — in his case, when — Smart gets caught a second time this season he will get a $5,000 fine from the league. Smart is making $3.6 million this season.
