• Lakers guard Blake fined $25,000 by league

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Nov 7, 2012
    Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake has been fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a fan, the NBA announced Tuesday. Blake and the fan initially exchanged words after the fan told Blake, "You need to knock down those open shots," and Blake snapped back with a comment, ESPNLosAngeles.com has learned. Blake met with the fan, Lance Jackson, and his father, Steve Jackson, at the Lakers' practice facility Tuesday. If you missed it, here's the video of Blake jawing with Lance Jackson from Friday night: Blake, who at that point was hitting on a pretty-good-for-him 5 of 12 from the floor on the season , reportedly responded by pointing out what his fellow season-ticket holding wife could do to Jackson, allegedly involving an F-bomb along the way. Oh, me. Steve Jackson is the chairman of shoe company LA Gear, and the Lakers probably want to stay on his good side. This reminds us of when 1950s comics had to go apologize to mob dons they poked fun at following a show, save for EVERY SINGLE THING THAT IS COOL about what I just compared this to.
