Okay, here's what you need to know from the New York Times:
After Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant directed an antigay slur at a referee Tuesday night [April 12, 2011] from the bench in a game against the Phoenix Suns, the N.B.A. fined him $100,000. Bryant has apologized, saying his words should not have been taken literally. He said he would appeal the fine.
