A couple of Lakers were hit in the ol’ pocket book by the League today, for actions that the NBA deemed punishable. From the LA Daily News: “Andrew Bynum skipped Tuesday’s afternoon’s media session and was fined $15,000 by the NBA for skipping out the moment the Lakers’ practice ended. He made up for it by speaking after Wednesday’s morning shootaround. The 7-foot Bynum has stopped speaking to reporters before games. Devin Ebanks received a $25,000 fine from the league for what the NBA said were his ‘actions prior to and following his ejection’ from the Lakers’ 29-point loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 on Monday night. Ebanks was ejected for shoving the Thunder’s Royal Ivey during a minor scuffle on the court and then punched a chair on the Lakers’ bench and removed his jersey as he went to the locker room.”
