Two days after Larry Sanders sarcastically gave three officials a thumbs up after being booted from a Bucks game, the center had a decidedly less Mayberry exit from Milwaukee's loss to the Miami Heat. The NBA announced on Sunday that it had issued Sanders a $50,000 fine for whatever he called an official to get ejected from the game on Friday.
The words Sanders used have not been confirmed.
Sanders has been ejected four times this season, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes. Sanders also criticized the officials after the game, which may have enhanced his penalty.
