Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose got fined an absurd amount of money over a pen.
The NBA announced late Tuesday afternoon that Rose got slammed with a $25,000 fine for throwing a pen into the stands during a Monday game against the Pelicans. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Yes, you read that sentence correctly. Rose got fined $25,000 over a pen!
What a stupid fine. Is the NBA serious with this? He’s getting fined $25,000 over a pen? This is embarrassing for the league.
It’s straight up disgraceful. I’m not saying he shouldn’t be scolded, but losing $25,000 over a pen is downright absurd.
They’re treating Rose like he could have murdered somebody. Hell, for $25,000, somebody damn well better be in the hospital.
If not, then you shouldn’t be getting slammed with a fine of that size. It’s really that simple.

It’s just that Rose getting fined the cost of a car is a horrendously stupid decision. Send him a strongly worded email.
That would have been more than enough.
