Wallace [2]After a game like the one against the Houston Rockets, it’s understandable using language not appropriate to use in front of a five-year-old.

The league, however, is very image conscious and came down on Wallace with a $10,000 fine for “using profane language during his postgame media availability session.”

What you can really consider this is a warning to other players around the league to make sure they keep it clean, too.

Although, maybe there should be a “we just lost by 24 and it wasn’t that close” loophole for frustrated players. I can’t blame Wallace for his frustration.
