    The fallout from Wednesday’s Heat-Wizards fracas that led to three ejections and a one-game suspension for John Wall continues.

    The NBA has announced that Marco Belinelli has been fined $10,000 after his flagrant-one foul on the Mavericks’ Shawn Marion was upgraded to a flagrant-two. The foul occurred in the third quarter. If it had been originally ruled a flagrant-two, Belinelli would have been ejected. Instead, Belinelli stayed in the game and scored six points…

  4. Chris Paul fined $15,000 for words with referee

    Feb 11, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Chris Paul had a chance to win it. Down two on the final play of overtime against the Nets, the Hornets ran a play that got Chris Paul a good look at a three (because Jordan Farmar seemed very lost). The shot rimmed out, but Paul thought he was fouled on the legs. No call.…

  5. J.R. Smith tagged with punishment for an on-court offense. Huh. Something new every day.

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    So when the Jazz played the Nuggets Friday night, Raja Bell decided to bury himself in the cerebral cortex of one J.R. Smith. Granted, it’s not really like that’s the toughest nut to crack. J.R. can shoot the rock, but he leaks crazy out of his head like a fire hydrant. So once Bell got…

  7. Eddie House fined $25,000 for “obscene gesture”

    Jan 31, 2011, 5:56 PM EDT

    Eddie House

    Eddie House‘s three-pointer with 22 seconds left of Sunday’s Heat-Thunder tilt won the game for the Heat, but the Cassell-esque dance he did immediately after making it will cost him as much as most people pay for their cars. Ira Winderman of the Florida Sun-Sentinel noted that House was not fined for making a similar…

    New Official NBA Ball Unveiled

    The NBA today fined Doc Rivers $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a “timely manner” following his ejection from the Suns game last Friday.

  9. Byron Scott fined for prototypical post-game officiating comments

    Nov 28, 2010, 7:58 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When you say something that indicates that you expect to be fined for your comments? Yeah, you’re pretty much locking up the fact that you’ll be fined. Byron Scott went off last Friday in a 110-100 loss to Orlando saying the Cavaliers were playing against eight players and your typical “we got screwed” conversations. On…

  10. Chris Bosh (or one of his people) is still confused about social media rules

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:05 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it. The odds of it actually being…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    The NBA announced it has fined Stephen Jackson $50,000 for verbal abuse of game officials during the Bobcats loss to the Pistons Friday night. And now, a short selection of what we believe Jackson said, the same vein of Kevin Garnett’s explanation of what he said to Charlie Villanueva, inspired by Twitter: “Mr. Official, are…

  12. Kevin Garnett talks trash. The league should do nothing about it.

    Nov 3, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    If you’ve ever sat near the court for a Kevin Garnett Celtics game, you know this — the man talks a lot of trash. A lot. Some genuinely nasty, personal stuff. He uses it to intimidate and to fire himself up. Charlie Villanueva thought KG crossed the line last night and called him on it,…

    Rudy Fernandez has two agents: Andy Miller for his NBA deals and Gerard Darnes for European deals. Or does he? During the summer of his discontent, both Miller and Darnes said things about Fernandez wanting to get out of Portland that led Fernandez to be fined. In September it was Darnes, going on a Portland…

  15. David Stern wins: Stan Van Gundy to stop talking about referees

    Apr 25, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Call him heavy handed, but David Stern gets results. He gets what he wants. He tells coaches to stop complaining about the referees, throws out a couple of fines and…. Stan Van Gundy said he is done talking about the referees during the playoffs, as the Associated Press reported. “I’ve been fined for saying how…

  16. David Stern complains about all the complaining

    Apr 22, 2010, 11:08 PM EDT

    Players are complaining about refs, Commissioner David Stern is fining them. Coaches are complaining about the refs, Stern is fining them. I think if he could fine this and other blogs, he would. But in comments to the media before the Lakers/Thunder game, he admitted that Pandora’s Box is open and the toils and sickness…
