Kobe’s Big Mouth

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has been fined for directing an offensive term at a referee, but some folks wanted him suspended.

David Stern is not happy with Kobe Bryant's big mouth.

The fallout was swift. And entirely predictable. The N.B.A. issued a fine and a harsh statement.

“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable,” Stern said. “While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Kobe and everyone associated with the N.B.A. know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in our game or society.”

But the penalty wasn’t harsh enough. For a star player earning $27 million this season, a $100,000 fine — about 0.4 percent of his salary — is far less imposing than cutting into his playing time.
