In the semi-brawl that took place, the NBA came down hard with suspensions and fines to both teams. While Pacers’ guard, Lance Stephenson didn’t get suspended, he did however receive a fine of $35,000.

The backup point guard for the Indiana Pacers, Stephenson has a salary of just $870,000. A fine like this would hurt his wallet greatly and result in 4% of his pre-tax savings.

Roy Hibbert saw that his teammate had no reason to be in the fight at all but saw that Stephenson intentions resulted in being a good friend. Hibbert therefore wants to return the favor and has offered to pay for Stephenson’s fine, Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star writes.

Stephenson intervened in a shoving match between Hibbert and David Lee.
