Amar'e Stoudamire was fined $50k for sending a fan a direct message that contained derogatory and offensive language:
 
The NBA fined Amare Stoudemire $50,000 for his use of a gay slur in a Twitter message, the league announced Tuesday.
 
Stu Jackson, the league's executive vice president of basketball operations, announced the fine Tuesday in a release, calling Stoudemire's language offensive and derogatory.
 
I don't care who you are, $50K is a lot of money to lose for a DM. Stoudamire was smart enough to send an apologetic message shortly after the fan exposed him on twitter, that might have saved him 50K. Lakers' superstar Kobe Bryant as fined $100k for saying a gay slur during a game last year. The NBA is really strict about this type of behavior.
