The NBA fined New York Knicks star Julius Randle $25,000 for “egregious use of profane language during media interviews,” the league announced.

Two cases brought the fine on Randle. The first occurred when the 27-year-old big man first mentioned that he “really don’t give a f-k what anybody has to say,” when he was asked about criticism following practice on January 5.

After the Knicks’ comeback win over the Boston Celtics the next day, Randle addressed a thumbs-down gesture that he made at the fans during the match, saying that it was for them to “shut the f–k up.”

Randle later posted a message to Knicks fans on his Instagram in which he mentioned that he should’ve things differently and express himself with “more professionalism” and “more appropriate language.”
