In the midst of drama with Warriors teammate Draymond Green and a shooting slump that hasn't helped the team's woes, Kevin Durant's bank account took a hit Tuesday.
Durant was fined $25,000 by the NBA for telling a Mavericks fan to "watch the f****** game and shut the f*** up" in Dallas during the Warriors' loss Saturday night. And now we know when Durant found out about the fine.
While taping a Yahoo Sports podcast with NBA Insider Chris Haynes, the reporter broke the news live to Durant.

"I knew I was gonna get fined," Durant said.
He then went on to explain what made him lash out at the fan.
"More fans should understand what that means," Durant said. "Grown men can't come to a game and heckle grown men. That's corny, that's weak. You're comin' to a game to heckle another grown man. 'You're soft. You're weak. Draymond this. Draymond that. You're a b****.'
"You're goin' to sleep as a grown man and doin' that to another person."
Durant and the Warriors have lost four out of their last five games. Their matchup with Russell Westbrook and the Thunder couldn't come at a better time.
