Raptors News: Adam Silver decides to fine Masai Ujiri $25,000

In Raptors news today, new NBA commissioner Adam Silver has decided to fine Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri after all, due to the use of the "F-word" in his statement at a Raptors viewing party on Sunday.

Per Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports, the original warning that the NBA issued to Ujiri was not enough in Silver's eyes:

It was originally reported that Ujiri would receive just a stern warning for screaming "F*** Brooklyn" in order to rile up Toronto fans prior to Game 1 against the Nets on Sunday.

However, Silver may have taken into account the fact that Ujiri wasn't exactly worried about fully apologizing.

According to DeAntae Prince of the Sporting News, Ujiri reiterated his feelings toward Brooklyn when asked about the fallout from his use of the F-word: “You know how I feel. I don’t like them, but I apologize,” Ujiri stated.
