NBA Hits Julius Randle With Massive $50k Fine For Shoving Referee & Cam Johnson
The NBA handed Julius Randle a $50,000 fine after the New York Knicks forward was ejected from the team’s 115-114 loss to the Phoenix Suns. According to the league, Randle “forcefully shoved” Cam Johnson, made contact with an NBA official, and refused to participate in the NBA’s investigation of the incident.
At the time of his ejection, the Knicks were up double-digits and pulling away from the top team in the West Conference standings. Johnson would go on to hit a buzzer-beating game-winner.
