That's a good point. I think Kobe once got a $100.000 fine for saying something offensive to a referee, can't remember what it was but it wasn't that long ago.. Not saying it should be that much, but it could certainly be higher than 5k.


What was crazy about that Kobe fine was Noah (I believe it was him) called a ref the same thing yet got fined less.

Yeah you're right I remember that

Hazy memory folks. Noah directed his slur at a fan, not a ref. The penalty is higher when you abuse an official versus a fan.

Stephen Jackson had been find $50K for verbal abuse of a game official in the season season. But he didn't use 'hate speech' so that was the $50K difference.

I'm sure Kobe's public visibility and level of compensation played a factor also. Probably only fair, otherwise you couldn't ever reasonably fine a player making the absolute minimum for doing the same thing.

He's been great; I'm eating crow right now. I didn't think he had it in him. He's battling every night and bringing it on both ends. Great job...

It's come to the point where I stopped yelling out "NO!!!!" when he squares up for a 3. Tonight I was actually yelling "TAKE THAT RON".

Metta World Peace is tied with Randy Foye @ #9 in 3PT FGs made and has now made more 3s than:


Klay Thompson
Wesley Matthews
Kobe Bryant
Jamal Crawford
Ray Allen
James Harden
Carmelo Anthony
Kevin Durant

MWP has really been our most consistent player next to Kobe and if he continues to remain as significant when Nash returns we'll really be that more deadly.

Struggled a couple of games into the season but he wasn't the only one. He's been fantastic otherwise. I'm really happy for him, Ron's always been one of my favorite players & personalities and he's worked his butt off coming into this season and it has paid off. Great to see.

Umm noo...he started hot in preseason played horrible up till a few games into the season then he got hot again after Mike Brown was fired. But I don't know what's gotten into him lately. This is the best he's looked since joining the Lakers.

He's shooting 39% from the 3 so far. I don't think he can maintain that but if he hovers around there, that's big for us.
