League fines Zach Randolph for post-ejection confrontation with Kendrick Perkins

Last Wednesday, in a physical game eventually won by the Grizzlies (because they love a physical game), Memphis’ Zach Randolph and Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins had words. Then were ejected with 2:05 remaining. Then kept having words outside the locker rooms about how they should have more than words. They were separated. Nothing came of it.

Until now. Randolph has been fined $25,000 by the league for his part in the altercation.

After the incident both players downplayed it as a lot of words. Which it likely mostly was, unless you think they were actually going to fight over by the buses like some high school rivalry.

But the league thought it was enough. Perkins was not fined.

    i think cousins should have some sorta beef with these guys’ outcome in their situation.

    Perkins is a fake tough guy, there’s only a few players out there that would back their words up. World Peace, Udonis Haslem and Randolph are on that short list.

      Metta tough ? After Ben Wallace threw him 20 feet on his ass. ? The dude sat on the scorer’s table, didn’t move an inch toward Ben. Probably saved his life too. And that cheap shot at Harden in the back of the neck. Strictly punkass stuff. Metta is many things but tough ain’t it. The boy don’t last 3 days in the Marine Corp boot camp. Bank it. Plus interest.

      I’m Charles Oakley and I approved this
