NEW YORK -- Denver forward Reggie Evans was fined $10,000 and assessed a flagrant foul penalty two by the NBA on Monday for his actions during the Nuggets' 100-86 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

Evans was cited for "unnecessary and excessive contact" with Clippers center Chris Kaman and had his penalty upgraded from the technical foul that was originally called.

Kaman was assessed a flagrant foul penalty one for his actions after the second-quarter incident, but that was downgraded to a technical foul by the league.

++++++++

I guess the league understands the need for a man to protect his manhood.

Wow, I'm truly surprised how small this penalty is. After something like Haslem throwing his moutchpiece at the ref (not even hitting him) got a game, i figured it'd be a couple games. Shaq was fined 25 thousand for criticising refs, but RE is only fined 10 thousand for grabbing a guys balls? The NBA is very strange sometimes.....

Not that it matters anymore, with the Nuggets being knocked out ;)
