The NBA fined Darrell Arthur (Mem) and Mario Chalmers (Mia) $20,000 each for getting kicked out of the NBA rookie program. The two refused to leave their hotel room during a fire alarm and hotel security entered the room to force them to leave and discovered two women and the smell of marijuana. The two players were kicked out of the program for violating program rules which does not allow the rookies to have visitors. The two denied using marijuana and there was no physical evidence of marijuana recovered from the room.Getting fined before playing a single game is pretty awesome.
