Dwight Howard Fined $35,000 for Shoving Kenneth Faried

Not only did Dwight Howard’s shove of Kenneth Faried cost him an ejection, but he’s now $35k poorer because of it. Per the AP: “Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard was fined $35,000 by the NBA on Thursday for a flagrant foul against Denver’s Kenneth Faried. Howard was ejected with 5:02 left in the third quarter in the Lakers’ 126-114 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday night. He was called for a flagrant foul 2 when he jammed his hand in Faried’s face as the Denver forward drove the lane. Faried tumbled to the floor, but shook off the fall to stay in the game. [...] Faried said he thought Howard might have been frustrated and also sensed his determined drive to the basket. ‘He saw my eyes. I wasn’t going to back down. I wasn’t going to try to float it,’ Faried said. ‘I was going to try to dunk on him. He saw it. That’s why he put his hand directly in my face.’”

    35K? That’s chicken feed to D12. If it was Bynum, I imagine he would have used an elbow or clothesline instead. The MANIMAL strikes again! Whoo!

    “I was going to try to dunk on him”
    Last year we would’ve laughed at that, this year it wouldn’t be that unusual.
