What the centre was fined for is believed to stem from his Instagram Live video he posted earlier this week where he is heard saying “F— LaVar Ball.”. Lavar Ball, who this will be one of the only times we talk about him because he isn’t worth the time, is Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Balls father.
OKC Thunders newest edition Patrick Patterson was not to happy with the fine.
Can’t even use our own social media platforms as we please.. Need to mute ourselves. Wow @NBA
