The three players including Lebron James have been fined $5,000 for flopping during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Lance Stevenson’s flop came during a play where Ray Allen raised an elbow, and David West and LeBron did a double-flop, according to CBS Sports.

When LeBron was accused of flopping in his first Heat game against the Bulls, LeBron said, “I don’t need to flop, I play an aggressive game. I don’t flop. I’ve never been one of those guys,” reports CBS.

Postseason flopping rules are different from regular season rules — resulting in fines instead of warnings. The next fine for flopping will be $10,000.

The three players join Derek Fisher, Jeff Pendergraph, Tony Allen and J.R Smith in recent flopping offenses.
