Nuggets' Jordan Hamilton fined for inappropriate language at fan

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Jordan Hamilton had something to say to a Clippers fan Tuesday and it wasn't "Happy Holidays."

The Nuggets' second-year forward was fined $25,000 by the league Wednesday for "directing inappropriate language towards a fan" in Denver's Christmas Day loss to the Clippers.

The incident happened late in the the Clippers' 112-100 win over the Nuggets when Hamilton's momentum carried him into the crowd after a block by Ronny Turiaf. Hamilton was heard very clearly telling the fan to "shut the f--- up." The exchange can be heard very clearly in this video.

Hamilton, 22, is averaging 6.8 points and 3.0 rebounds per game this season for the Nuggets in 19 games.
