Kobe Bryant Fined $100,000 by NBA

NEW YORK – NBA Commissioner David Stern issued the
following statement today:

“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and
inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game,
such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Accordingly, I have
fined Kobe $100,000. Kobe and everyone associated with the NBA know that
insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in
our game or society.”
