David West Fined $15,000 for Elbowing Blake Griffin
When the Clippers came to play basketball in Indiana, David West was tossed for tossing an elbow towards Blake Griffin’s oh-so-punchable face. Luckily for the team, the Pacers were able to withstand the loss. Danny Granger filled in admirably by playing some power forward and the rest of the guys did enough to get the W.
That won’t help West’s pockets though.
As expected, the league announced that it is taking $15,000 from West and giving it to charity (which is where all fine money goes). At least it was for a good cause. I mean, a better cause than going upside Blake’s head.
