Jazz guard Rodney Hood fined $35,000 for slapping phone out of fan's hand
First an ejection, then a hefty fine ... Rodney Hood isn't having a very good week
Jazz guard Rodney Hood isn't having a great week. First, he was ejected during Utah's win over the Wizards on Wednesday. On his way to the lockerroom, Hood out of the hand of a fan who was recording him. As a result, the NBA fined Hood $35,000 on Friday for his actions.
The video does catch the fan saying something to Hood before his phone gets slapped out of his hand. Hood could have saved himself some money by blowing it off and ignoring the fan, but the NBA can be emotional. He's paying for it now. Literally.
