NEW YORK -- Robert Horry of the Los Angeles Lakers was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Thursday for shoving a cameraman in Minneapolis Tuesday night.

The shove occurred at halftime of the Minnesota Timberwolves' 119-91 victory over the Lakers that evened their first-round playoff series at 1-1.

That proves how the league sucks up to the Lakers. That's just like Artest and his camera incident, except horry pushed a person.

Oh com'on... a fine is better than nothing at all, which was what I anticipated intially. Afterall it's not like Horry deliberately went for the camera man and smashed a $20k camera. A fine seems about right.

Reminds me when Rodman kicked a camera guy when he was down. Robert Horry acts like he is a hall a fame player sometimes.

So it's $10,000 for a person, $60,000 for a camera. Makes sense.

Fines are a joke with what guys in the NBA make. Even if you're making veteran minimum, $10K is a joke. Fines should be a percentage of player salary IMO.
