Video: DeMar DeRozan Fined $25,000 For Throwing Ball At Referee

San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan has been fined $25,000 for stupidly throwing the basketball toward a game official and into the spectator stands.


The NBA announced that the fine was due to DeRozan “recklessly throwing the basketball toward a game official and into the spectator stands.”

The Nuggets had opened up a 110-92 lead. As DeRozan was driving to the bucket, Foster called him for an offensive charge. The 29-year-old was not happy and reacted by throwing the ball across the court in Foster’s direction before even regaining his balance.

DeRozan was then ejected with 5:01 remaining in the game and the Spurs on their way to a 117-103 loss to Denver.

“Frustration,” DeRozan said. “I thought it was a bad call.”
