Programming note: Watch tonight's Warriors-Suns game at 6 p.m. PT streaming live on the MyTeams app.
Andre Iguodala will be writing a pretty hefty check to the NBA.
The Warriors forward was fined $25,000 for "recklessly throwing the game ball into the spectator stands," the league announced on Monday morning.
Just after the halftime buzzer sounded during Golden State's game in Portland on Saturday night, Iguodala picked up the ball near halfcourt and fired it over the basket:
The TV broadcast went to commercial break and we soon learned that Iguodala was assessed a technical foul (a $2,000 fine) and ejected.
According to Iguodala:
Draymond Green said Steve Kerr came into the locker room at halftime and told the team Andre Iguodala had been ejected for throwing the ball into the crowd. Everyone was confused. Iguodala's explanation: "I was trying to shoot. How do they know my depth perception?"— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 30, 2018
Don't expect the 2015 Finals MVP to comment any further, or a subsequent fine could be in the works...
