Lance Stephenson is a flopper. He’s been fined. More than once.

When Stephenson brought his game to Charlotte this season, he clearly brought the flopping with him, as you can see from this VINE from Sunday night’s game against the Bulls (hat tip Bleacher Report).

There is contact here, Kirk Hinrich bumps Stephenson from behind, but as you see in this video Stephenson hesitates just half a second then embellishes the contact trying to draw the foul. Hornets fans, you’ll see a fair amount of this during the season.
