New York

The NBA has handed down its disciplinary assessments for last night's entertainment at Madison Square Garden. A confrontation between Lebron James and Enes Kanter overshadowed the actual game on the floor between the rebuilding Knicks and the struggling Cavaliers (for the record, the Cavs won, 104-101 after a fourth quarter comeback erased what had been a 22 point New York lead). In the aftermath, the players continued to trade verbals jabs, Twitter buzzed, and a veteran basketball columnist came under fire for an indefensibly racist tweet.

Now, the NBA weighs in, with a fine of $25,000 for Kanter, the Turkish center best known for his support of dissident Turkish cleric and politician Fethullah Gulen (although he also had sixteen rebounds Monday night). James was fined as well, to the tune of $15,000.

The NBA did not explicitly rationalize the difference in fines, which is more striking when you consider that James appears to have been the instigator, both by disrespecting Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina before the game, and by plowing into the young guard during the game. However, the statement by NBA executive vice president (and former Knick) Kiki VanDeWeghe made clear that Kanter's post game comments played a role.

"What do you call yourself? King, Queen, Princess. Whatever you are. We're going to fight." Kanter had said in reference to Lebron. VanDeWeghe noted in his prepared release that "aside from any in-game conduct, the league is particularly concerned with threats of further violence and with gender-based verbal slurs."

For his part, Lebron did not seem put off by the sexist insult. "I'm the king, my wife is the queen, and my daughter is the princess, so we got all three covered," was his reaction in his own post game comments.
