For those who are unaware of the incident, Andre was ejected with 4:30 remaining in the game at the Chase Center against the Phoenix Suns. The former NBA Finals MVP was battling a rebound with Jock Landale when he ultimately threw the ball into the stands and followed it by a verbal spat with the game official.

The loss against the Suns frustrated many of the Golden State Warriors stars and Andre Iguodala was at the forefront of it all. Moreover, the $25,000 fine on Iguodala was issued by Joe Dumars, the league’s Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations.
