Lakers Steve Blake fined $25K for directing inappropriate language to a fan


When the Lakers loss to the Clippers on Friday night, Steve Blake had a moment after he fouled our where he and a fan exchanged a few not so nice words. The NBA doesn’t take kindly to players cursing out their patrons and today it was announced that Blake has been fined $25,000 for “directing inappropriate language towards a fan.”

For those of you unable to read his lips to make out the tirade, here are a few phrases I managed to pick up on;  “b**ch”, “F**k you.” What did the fan say to set Blake off? Per ESPN LA, the fan told Steve he needed to knock down those open shots. Somehow I doubt the words were that tame though judging by his reaction.
