OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Monday for what the league called "inappropriate comments" following the team's weekend loss at Minnesota.
The NBA announced the penalty shortly after Iguodala spoke to the media following practice and addressed the racially tinged comments he made Friday night.
Iguodala acknowledged he put his team in a tough spot when he told reporters "I do what master say" upon finding out that he would be resting the next night at San Antonio, along with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
He made it clear that he and Golden State coach Steve Kerr are just fine - and that Kerr wasn't the "master" in this case, one that sure sounded like a reference to slavery. He also used the N-word several times when talking to the media.
