    I would kill for a 5-5 stretch right now and would be thrilled with anything better than that....

    Miami’s Jimmy Butler ($35,000) and Indiana’s TJ Warren ($25,000) have been fined for their roles in altercation on Wednesday night.

    NBA really needs to work on their fine structure. There's no point with these numbers. Butler makes 32 million this year, $35k is a drop in the ocean for him. Even TJ at 10M isn't going to feel his much. Should be based on game salaries. Fine them a game each.

    Fining them a game check, Butler would be getting penalized much more severely than Warren.

    I heard that was part of the deal for Griffin originally. The Clippers provided a stack of those forms already completed, all the Pistons need to do is date it and fax it over.

    It makes one wonder about Griffin's future in the NBA.

    The trade for Griffin is going to haunt the Pistons for awhile.

    On an absolute dollar value, sure. But that amount is a dramatically different relative impact based on yearly salary.

    If the goal of these fines is to curb undesired behaviour, then the current structure is meaningless.

    So you're going to penalize players for making more money?

    Suspensions cost players different amounts. Ayton was hurt more financially than John Collins but they were both suspended for 25 games for violating the drug policy. Is it fair that Ayton lost more money? That's basically the same argument. Fining them a game check, regardless of how much that is for each player, would curb that behavior better than some measly 25k. They make a lot more than that per game.

    That's a good point.
