Manu Ginobili and Gordon Hayward better be sure they've been fouled in the future.

NBA commissioner David Stern is considering cracking down on the NBA’s flopping epidemic.

One of the measures being discussed is postgame analysis of footage and possible retroactive penalties against offenders.

So Playbook proposes a handy, league-issued pamphlet for the NBA's most shameless offenders.
