I think Noah should at least get fined for the same amount but definitely not lesser.

damn, kobe go hit harder than I thought.

If Kobe got 100 directed towards and official, It seems logical Noah would get more if directed towards a fan. But what in the NBA is logical.

Both fines are outrageous, just to make my position clear.

Default Noah fined $50,000 for gay slur..what do you think of it?

My first thought was that they can't go backwards after Kobe was fined $100,000...but Kobe makes a lot more money. Do you think fines should be assessed as a standard amount, or as a percentage of the players salary?

Noah is a nobody, Kobe is a worldwide superstar.

It makes sense, but Noah shouldn't be talking sheit about anyone, dude bangs his own sister.

Calling the official a fa**ot is different from doing the same to a fan. It does not help that Kobe's language was heard by millions of viewers.

I wonder had Cuban said that what his fine would've been.

fines are not based on salary, only suspensions (I know that's not what you meant)

and Noah just got a 50 or 60 million dollar extension

But there shouldn't be varying degrees of penalties for the same offense, what is this, the NFL?
