GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- We all know Iman Shumpert likes to rap in his spare time. It turns out he's a pretty good actor, too.

The NBA on Saturday issued a warning to Shumpert for his flop against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night.

Shumpert acted as if he'd taken contact when Gerald Henderson swung his elbows following a rebound, but according to this video, he did not.

Hey, you have to give Shumpert credit for trying.

The NBA has cracked down on flopping recently. Shumpert's next flop will result in a $5,000 fine.

He is the first Knick to be warned this season.
