Gerald Wallace fined $10,000 for trying to explain Celtics with an expletive

“I don’t know what the (expletive) tonight was.”

That was how Boston’s Gerald Wallace tried to explain the Celtics getting obliterated by the Rockets Tuesday night — Houston opened on an 18-1 run, led by 35 and cruised in to a 109-85 win. After a game like that I’d go to using language not appropriate to use in front of a five-year-old also.

The league, however, is very image conscious and came down on Wallace with a $10,000 fine for “using profane language during his postgame media availability session.”

What you can really consider this is a warning to other players around the league to make sure they keep it clean, too.

Although, maybe there should be a “we just lost by 24 and it wasn’t that close” loophole for frustrated players. I can’t blame Wallace for his frustration.
