NBA fines Rockets owner Leslie Alexander $100K.
If you were tuned in to Game 5 between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, you might've noticed what appeared to be a rogue fan seated courtside getting up out of his chair to confront one of the refs in the first quarter.
As it turns out, that fan was actually Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander. And getting in the refs face like that is going to cost him $100,000.
It all worked out for Alexander's Rockets in the end as they completed the "Gentleman's Sweep" over the Thunder and are now awaiting the winner of the Spurs vs Grizzlies series.
Of course, $100,000 really ain't shit to Leslie Alexander.
Les Alexander's fine of $100,000 (on net worth of $1.8 billion) is the equivalent of fining the average American $10.00 (net worth: $180K)— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) April 27, 2017
