Amare Stoudemire Fined $50,000

It may be the offseason, but Commissioner David Stern still has his foot on the throat of NBA players. After catching heat earlier this week for making an inappropriate homophobic comment on Twitter, Knicks star Amare Stoudemire was fined $50,000 dollars by the NBA.

Executive VP of basketball operations Stu Jackson released a statement today, informing the public of Amare’s fine. The league has run an aggressive campaign against gay slurs since last season, after stars like Kobe Bryant were caught on camera using such expressions. Amare has acknowledged his wrong doing, releasing the following statement: “I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people. I am disappointed in myself for my statement to a fan. I should have known better and there is no excuse.”
