This past Thursday night, the Memphis Grizzlies faced off against the Miami Heat, ultimately losing to the Heat 138-119. During the game, Grizzlies player Dillon Brooks reportedly shoved down a cameraman while trying to chase a loose ball during the second quarter.
According to reports, the shoved cameraman got injured and was still facing medical evaluation days later. Because of that, Brooks was issued a $35,000 fine from the NBA. Heat radio announcer Jason Jackson spoke on the ordeal, saying, “The fine was on point, but the max would have felt like a sliver of justice after disregard for another human - an incredible one at that,” in reference to the Heat camera operator.
News of this comes after it was revealed that Brooks’ teammate Ja Morant would be suspended for eight games due to “behavior detrimental to the league.” Watch above.
