Nate Robinson fined 10k for Adams incident
Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson has been fined $10,000 for pushing Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams from behind and striking him in the chest, it was announced today by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred with 10:59 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Nuggets' 109-81 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
It looked pretty funny at the time, little Nate getting all agro at Adams who looked like he could shot putt him into the crowd effortlessly if he wanted.
The Refs stepped in pretty quickly and ejected Robinson, Adams barely raised an eyebrow and showed his maturity by not getting involved and ran down the other end ready to defend on the next play.
