Hornets’ Marvin Williams fined $15,000 for elbow to Amundson’s head

The NBA doesn’t mess around with blows to the head.

Charlotte’s Marvin Williams has been fined $15,000 for his shot to the lead of Knicks’ forward Lou Amundson Tuesday night during the Knicks win. He had to know the fine was coming, Williams was ejected for the blow immediately and this was not one he would win on appeal.

It was a hard foul and a bit of retribution for a hard foul from Amundson on the other end, but when you contact the head the league comes down on you, it’s pretty simple.
