Spurs’ Victor Wembanyama fined $25K by NBA for throwing ball into stands vs. Knicks

March 31st, 2024

Victor Wembanyama has hit another important milestone in his young NBA career: his first fine.

The NBA announced Sunday that the San Antonio Spurs rookie has been fined $25,000 for throwing the basketball into the stands against the New York Knicks.

The Spurs and Knicks faced off on Friday, a 130-126 overtime win for San Antonio. As the clock ran out, Wembanyama hugged the ball with both arms, appearing to try to keep it away from the Knicks’ Jalen Brunson. Then he tossed the ball to the Spurs home crowd.

Brunson had just scored an incredible 61 points for the Knicks, who ended up losing by just four despite his individual effort. That win gave the Spurs their third win in their last five games. Of course, the Spurs have the third-worst record in the NBA, but even small victories are victories.
