By accidentally splashing a few fans with water, James becomes a slightly poorer man: “NBA Executive Vice President Stu Jackson fined James $25,000 on Thursday for kicking a water bottle into the stands. Upset about not getting a call on a drive to the basket, James was hit with a technical foul for oomplaining to referees with 12.4 seconds left in the quarter and the Cavs up by one point. Coach Mike Brown removed James from the game to cool him down and when James came to the bench he kicked the bottle, which sprayed several fans with water behind the bench. Sending anything into the stands is against the rules and James would have been ejected from the game if the officials saw him do it.”
