Grizzlies guard Tony Allen has been fined $15,000 for intentionally striking a camera on the baseline during the team’s 93-81 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in FedExForum, the NBA announced Tuesday afternoon. The incident occurred Monday night with 10:01 remaining in the third quarter of the game. Memphis Commercial Appeal

Tony Allen is one of the most passionate players in the NBA, but his enthusiasm may have got him in trouble Monday night in Memphis. The tenacious defender was upset he was called for a foul, turned around, and slapped a cameraman who was courtside. Allen obviously wasn’t intending to slap the guy – but why would he want to slap a camera, anyway? – but his lack of sympathy after the hit is mildly troubling. Maybe he was so “in the zone” that he didn’t realize it. The Big Lead

The genesis of the Joerger-Pera problems, according to league sources, dates back to last September. Pera -- who fancies himself a pretty good player -- challenged Tony Allen to a game of one-on-one. Allen, on Twitter, accepted. Pera, a Silicon Valley billionaire who bought a small controlling interest in the Grizzlies in 2012, poured tens of thousands of dollars into producing the matchup. He invited the media and instructed the public relations staff to issue a press release promoting the event. SI.com
