The precedence has been set.

A player, being caught on camera, for cursing and slurring has been fined for 100K.

The one player in this league that has gotten away with it throughout his entire tenure in the NBA has been Mr. Kevin Garnett.

Do you feel that now, KG will be under the microscope when it comes to him cursing etc.? Could he be now possibly fired anytime he curses?

Discuss.

players get caught cussing all the time
kobe only got fined because the audio was played on TV and it was a slur

kobe cusses all the time and this is the first time he's gotten a huge fine like this. chill

Kobe was fined for his gay slur.

I'm pretty sure with all the F-bombs he drops for a span of 2-3 consecutive minutes, somewhere in there he's saying a gay slur or something relating to a cancer patient.

there is no proof that KG actually said cancer patient
Charlie could have made the whole thing up. probably didnt, but there is no way to prove that he didnt

and again, Kobe was only fined because the audio picked up the slur

You can't compare the F-bomb with gay slurs. David Stern takes gay slurs more seriously for a reason :)

Kobe makes 13 million This year after taxes. This is chump change for him. I think that by sending a 6 digit fine his way really was just a statement that gay slurs are not allowed. This is more embarrassing for Bryant than anything else.

it was a message sent by the league. No way they continue that crap

It had nothing to do with cursing, but it was solely because of gay slurs.

It doesn't. It was an isolated incident that has nothing to do with KG.

i think calling villanueva a cancer patient is much worse than saying ****ing ****** to a ref and being caught on camera...even kg spinning it saying he was cancerous is still terrible considering charlie having alopecia...kobe is just held to a higher standard

Oh God, I KNEW this was somehow gonna involve KG... And somehow this will end up in a Heat hate thread

Kobe fukt up, plain and simple. He deserves it for what he said, not for cursing
