I've seen all kinds of diving this play-offs, some of which have been just as blatant or more blatant than Laps first dive penalty, and yet no penalties.
Collusion in sports between officials and people who run the sport is quite common, just look at soccer. There was a scandal earlier this year in a couple of Champions League matches. One of the most blatant match fixing performances was the 2002 World Cup.
