Wizards’ Kevin Seraphin fined $15K for flagrant foul against Grizzlies

The Wizards were up big on a depleted Wizards team Thursday when Kevin Seraphin decided to hammer Jon Leuer on a fast break.

The officials ruled the play as a flagrant two foul at the time, which comes with it an automatic ejection.

A day later, the league has seen fit to further fine Seraphin for his actions.

From the official release:

Washington Wizards center Kevin Seraphin has been fined $15,000 for making excessive contact and pulling Memphis Grizzlies forward Jon Leuer off the rim and to the floor, it was announced today by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.

That seems about right.

Even if there was no intent to injure (which is impossible to discern), it was a dangerous play nonetheless, and is worthy of punishment for that reason all by itself.
