Dwyane Wade Flop: Are Heat Better Without Him?

Dwyane Wade has been fined $5,000 for his Game 2 flop against the San Antonio Spurs. And deservedly so. The NBA says flopping is illegal and has tried to curb the act by fining players when they do.

And Wade's Game 2 flop was a doozy.

Although it came against Manu Ginobili, a man who has used flopping as the seeds to a Hall of Fame career. So, karma and all that.

Some have suggested that players who flop should be suspended a game.

If that were the case, would Wade's flop deserve a game suspension? And if so, would that be such a bad thing for the Heat?
