If I got fined $25,000 for every time I dropped an f-bomb, I’d be about $17 kajillion in debt. If Kevin Garnett got fined for every time he dropped an f-bomb, he’d probably be even further in debt than that.
Thankfully for Garnett — and for me — the world doesn’t work like that. But the NBA does, and when that f-bomb is directed at the shortcomings of a zebra, there will be dollars to fork up. So when Garnett said, “”I thought we were playing Michael F–king Jordan tonight the way he was getting the whistle. Durant damn near shot more free throws than our whole team,” it was clear KG would have to sacrifice a pretty penny to the NBA’s league office.
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski put it hilariously:
Garnett was fined $25,000 for taking Michael Jordan’s name in vain.
