He didn’t convince the league office, either.
Golden State guard-forward Andre Iguodala has been fined $25,000 for recklessly throwing the game ball into the spectator stands, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident, for which Iguodala received a technical foul and was ejected, occurred after time had expired in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 115-105 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Dec. 29
That’s the standard fine for throwing something into the stands, and Iguodala probably deserves it. But I thought he might get the benefit of the doubt for attempting a long shot.
Apparently not, though.
