Kobe Bryant uses a homophobic slur toward an NBA official.

The NBA has just fined Kobe Bryant $100,000 dollars for using a homophobic slur toward an NBA official.  This is a smart move by the NBA to punish one of the most recognizable figures in sports for making an inappropriate comment.  You cannot allow any player to use a slur like this.  The league would've made a huge PR mistake by choosing not to do anything about this incident.
