Nuggets’ Nate Robinson fined $10,000 for incident with Steven Adams

Oct 21, 2013, 5:30 PM EST

It was the fourth quarter of a blowout preseason game where the Thunder were shredding the Nuggets, and as Derek Fisher was knocking down a jumper from the top of the key, Nate Robinson shoved Thunder rookie center Steven Adams under the basket, then as Adams ran past him back up court Robinson struck him in the chest. (You can see it in the video above, move ahead to the 1:29 mark.)

Robinson was ejected from that game for a flagrant 2 foul after a video review.

Monday, the league slapped a $10,000 fine on top of that.

And you thought everyone in the NBA just coasted through the preseason.

    Steven Adams is already looking like the next great draft bust. Watch the guy run the court. Makes Thabeet look like Hakeem.

    Really? 10 grand for that?? Dirk Nowitzki nearly took Garcia’s head off last night. How much will HE be fined?

      I don’t know the circustances leading up to Dirk’s foul, but I saw the replay and I didn’t see any Intent to injure. Dirk also helps him up and apologizes.

      Nothing, because Dirk is white. This is how the world works……., most of the time.

        Pfft. This isn’t “the world”, this is the NBA and even though Dirk’s foul wasn’t malicious (I hope), they do kinda frown on their players giving each other WWE smackdowns for no good reason.

    Nate’s one emotional dude.
