NBA Fines Kevin Durant $25K For Swearing At Fan

The league has fined Nets All-Star forward Kevin Durant $25K for “directing obscene language” at a fan during the Brooklyn’s 113-105 victory against the Hawks, the NBA has announced (Twitter link).

With 28 seconds left in the first half Friday, Durant apparently made the remarks towards an attendant fan in the arena.

The NBA has been cracking down on players’ on-court obscenities this season. As Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic tweets, the league fined Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma $15K for flipping off a fan earlier this week. Lakers forward LeBron James was also fined $15K for making an obscene gesture on the court last month.
