Did he get to keep the ball?

Kevin Garnett was fined $5,000 on Monday for throwing a ball into the stands during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, but that may just be the icing on Garnett’s wallet. The ball apparently hit a fan in the face, although it did not appear to be lofted with much velocity.

The fan asked to be removed from the arena via a stretcher, which was acknowledged by the rest of the fans in attendance with a chorus of boos. No charges were filed against Garnett, but a civil suit may be in the making.

Where’s Ron Artest when you really need him?

"I'd like to apologize once again to the fan and his family involved in yesterday's incident at the Target Center," Garnett said. "It was never my intent to injure anyone. I have the deepest respect for the fans of the NBA and the Minnesota Timberwolves."

Oh, and he loves his money too. Unfortunately for him, so may the leech that he hit.
