Nets’ Allen Crabbe fined $15,000 for throwing ball at stanchion (video)

When I first saw Nets wing Allen Crabbe was fined $15,000 for “violating the rule prohibiting players from throwing any item, including the game ball, at the basket stanchion,” I was surprised. I’d never seen anyone fined for this, and I’m sure I’d seen frustrated players throw the ball at the stanchion.

Then, I watched video of Crabbe’s transgression. It instantly made sense why he received special scrutiny.
