NBA Lowers the Boom on Player, Who Shoved Camera Person
The NBA has announced that Memphis Grizzlies guard-forward Dillon Brooks has been fined $35,000 for “the unsportsmanlike act of shoving a camera person on the sideline after pursuing a loose ball.”
Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations, made the announcement
Brooks’ actions occurred with 2:40 remaining in the second quarter of the Grizzlies’ 138-119 loss to the Miami Heat on March 15 at Miami-Dade Arena.
It has been a rough week for Brooks, who also picked up his 16th technical foul of the season last night against the Dallas Mavericks, meaning he will have to serve a one-game suspension, per league rules.
