The 32-year-old Brooklyn Nets player was fined for $50,000 by the National Basketball Association on Friday (April 2) for using “offensive and derogatory language” in messages exchanged with actor Michael Rapaport that went viral.

Kevin Durant did later apologize and “acknowledged that his actions were inappropriate,” the NBA said in their statement.
