On Thursday, the Clippers took a loss against the Heat, while Blake Griffin took a forearm to the throat. Mario Chalmers was trying to fend off Griffin's pick when he whacked him with a forearm that had Griffin going "God damn!" At least, that's what it looked like he said.
Chalmers got hit with a foul, which got upgraded to a flagrant two, and a $15,000 fine. The hit may have been an accident, although Chalmers' reaction implies otherwise. Even if it is, it's a forearm hit. To the throat. In 2013's NBA. Picture commissioner David Stern grimacing while giving the side eye to deputy commissioner Adam Silver, warning him that he better be on top of things like this when he takes over.
