Kevin Durant has been hit with a $25,000 fantastic after cursing at a fan at some stage in Wednesday’s game.
The Brooklyn Nets big name yelled “obscene language” at a heckler closer to the stop of the matchup towards the Dallas Mavericks. Towards the give up of the game, which noticed the Mavericks take domestic the victory, a fan close to the baseline yelled to Durant, “You bought to take this recreation over.” Durant shot back, “You bought to shut the f**k up and take a seat down.”
On Twitter, Durant shared a meme of a girl handing over a dollar, comedically confirming that the nice used to be imposed.
The 33-year-old is no stranger to hefty penalties. Durant was once fined $50,000 in April 2021 following a back-and-forth on social media with actor Michael Rapaport. In December 2021, the NBA imposed any other $25,000 penalty for cursing at a fan. One month later, Durant used to be ordered to pay an extra $15,000 for the usage of profane language in an interview and failing to comply with an NBA Security interview as section of the evaluation process.
The NBA doesn’t like the idea of its biggest stars cursing at fans courtside.
However, if that fan starts something, should the NBA police how Kevin Durant (or any player) responds?
Of course the league thinks it should police everything. There was little question a fine going to come in when a fan with a camera phone recording — “Let’s see if I can get Durant to respond then I’ll post it, I will get so many likes!” — told Durant he needed to take over the game against the Mavericks Wednesday night. Durant responded by telling said fan to “shut the f*** up.” Here’s the video, but it’s NSFW due to the language.
The NBA Friday fined Durant $25,000 for “directing obscene language toward a fan.”
