NBA Fine Randolph, not Perkins

NBA Fine Randolph, not Perkins

Last Wednesday in Oklahoma City’s 107-97 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, Zach Randolph and Kendrick Perkins were ejected late in the fourth quarter. An incident happened near the locker rooms which caused the NBA to investigate the issues. It was more or less about how they should take it outside of the arena. The two were separated, that was the end of it.

After five days of investigation by the NBA, Zach Randolph has been fined $25,000 for his part in the altercation.

Both players down played the incident. However, other people near the incident say otherwise.  Sources inside the arena, and near the locker rooms say that Perkins went to the locker room. Randolph started to, but then went running at Perkins. That’s where the two began shouting and had to be separated. If you’ve never been near the locker rooms, you have to go PAST the visitor’s locker room to get to the Thunder locker room. That’s probably where Randolph’s fine came from, most likely instigating the incident more.
