Anthony fined for shoving Ginobili in Game 3

I saw this 'push', and Carmelo used both hands, his left pushing Ginobili hard in the back of his neck. You could break somebody's neck that way! The league gave a fine which, by my back of the magazine subscription card (hey, I didn't have an envelope handy) would be the equivalent of a $107 fine to someone making $50,000 a year (I'm not sure exactly how much Anthony makes this year, but he got a four-year, $15.1 million contract in 2003).

So in other words, go ahead, try to break your opponents neck because you lost, the league doesn't mind. I guess Fugazi Martin taught Anthony some dirty tricks this season; next will be the lesson about whining about other player's performances after you get clobbered by a better team (see Martin's comments as a Net after a 1-21 game against the Spurs). Bleh, I used to like the Nuggets, last year, before they signed Kenyon Martin, thug. Earl Boykins, Nene, Marcus Camby, even John Barry the ex-Sacramento King.
