Serge Ibaka Not Suspended, Fined $25K for Hitting Blake Griffin in the Groin

Sorry, Los Angeles Lakers fans. But Serge Ibaka will be in uniform tonight. Hear that, Kobe? The NBA elected not to suspend the OKC Thunder forward for his groin attack on Blake Griffin, and instead went after his money. Per the NBA’s PR arm: “OKC’s Serge Ibaka Fined $25,000 for striking LAC’s B. Griffin during game on March 3.”

    Kobe: “Oh sh*t”

    So Lance Stephenson gets fined 35k for his “involvement” in the Pacers-Warriors altercation but Ibaka only gets fined 25k when he clearly hits Blake in the groin. That makes no sense whatsoever.

    Didn’t Blake Griffin do something similar to Chandler Parsons a while ago. The infamous love tap.

    SLAM should do an investigative report on how the NBA determines fines. I, for one, would really like to know.

    I figured this would happen. If this Thunder/Lakers matchup wasn’t a nationally televised game, I’m 100% certain that Serge would be watching this one from the locker room.

    Fact is, perfect timing.

    won’t happen… the power of the wizard of oz is not to be toyed with.

    Like i said earlier:

    I feel like the Ibaka hit was a lot more obvious then the Wade-groin kick.

    if there ever was a conspiracy theory to be made, this fine represents the Thunders position as the “darlings” in the league
