NBA Star Fined $40K For Post-Game Gay Remark

  • Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas has been fined $40,000 for using “derogatory and disparaging language” after Thursday’s win over the Chicago Bulls, the NBA announced Friday.
  • Two days earlier, Dinwiddie had joked with the media in the wake of the Kyrie Irving trade with the Dallas Mavericks that while the Nets may not have acquired the most talented players in the deal — which included Dorian Finney-Smith going to Brooklyn — they did get the “best-looking.”
  • Asked by TNT about Dinwiddie’s comment, Thomas said postgame Thursday night: “We already had good-looking guys, no homo.”
