New York Knicks vulgar forward Amar’e Stoudemire has been fined $50,000 for using offensive and derogatory language in a Twitter message, according to a statement made by the National Basketball Association. Seems light to me, should have been double that. Telling a Fan F*** You and calling him a F*g is pretty much unacceptable.

Hall of Fame forward Rick Barry is the only player ever to lead the NCAA, NBA, and ABA in scoring. His name appears near the top of every all-time offensive list. He scored more than 25,000 points in his professional career and in four different seasons averaged more than 30 points. He was named to 12 All-Star teams, four All-NBA First Teams, and five All-ABA First Teams. Barry was a nearly unstoppable offensive juggernaut, a passionate competitor with an untempered desire to win.
One of the most versatile and talented players, 6-7 Scottie Pippen orchestrated an offense like a point guard, rebounded like a power forward, scored like a shooting guard, and defended on the perimeter like few others. The seven-time All-Star was a vital component of the Chicago Bulls’ six NBA Championships in the 1990s. As the second-best player on the championship Bulls team to perhaps the greatest player to lace up a pair of sneakers - Michael Jordan, Pippen may never get his due.
