I must admit that I haven't actively followed the NBA since 2008, but this is something we can certainly understand as both soccer fans. As far as I know Steven Lenhart doesn't play basketball, so the problem is not quite as rampant in the NBA, but it something that fans are used to seeing. In fact, I frequently point at basketball when my friends ask me how soccer fans put up with the flopping. Importantly, this rule change seemingly has no affect on how the calls are handled during the game. As far as I know the NBA doesn't have a direct analogue to the MLS disciplinary review board. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
