On Saturday night in Memphis, Steph Curry threw his mouthpiece in frustration and was ejected.
On Monday afternoon, the NBA hit Curry with a $50,000 fine.
The two-time MVP was "kind of surprised" at the steep penalty.
"It's an expensive mouthpiece toss," Curry told ESPN's Chris Haynes. "At the end of the day, it's not about the money, it's about me not doing stupid stuff and losing my cool like that.
"It's obviously a tough blow, but it's more so about me recognizing how to handle myself on the court."
Curry was fined $25,000 for throwing his mouthpiece during Game 6 of the 2016 Finals.
He understands that it's something he can't do again.
"It was embarrassing, and I know that," Curry told ESPN. "I can't do that. I know the league wants to crack down on that type of behavior and I understand why. I've got to be better than that.
"I'm actually glad I got to play, but I wish I had that money back."
Curry signed a 5-year, $201,158,790 contract extension over the summer, so he's going to be just fine.
But you can't blame him for wanting that $50,000 in his bank account.
