After reviewing the tape of Rip Hamilton elbow to Michael Redd from Saturday's game, the NBA upgraded the foul from a flagrant 1 to a flagrant 2. NBA VP Stu Jackson handed out a $15,000 fine but no suspension. Still, doesn't the fine seem a little high relative to other events around the league? Krista Latham explains:
That's $5,000 more than Jackson fined Denver forward Reggie Evans, who grabbed Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman's testicles on Saturday.
(If you still haven't seen video of the incident and the post-game interview with Kaman, first ask yourself one last time if you really want to. If you said no, I understand. But if you said yes, knock yourself out.
