Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri fired up the hometown fans by profanely letting them know what he thinks of the Brooklyn Nets. The NBA was not amused, and slapped Ujiri with a $25K fine. From the AP:
The NBA has fined Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri $25,000 for using profanity in a public place.
Ujiri was speaking at a public rally Saturday before the Raptors hosted the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1 of their first round playoff series when he used an expletive. He later apologized.
The NBA announced the penalty Monday night, a day before the Raptors host the Nets in Game 2.
