Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant apologized for his shocking courtside meltdown. He was so furious over the fouls called against him that he shouted an anti-gay slur at the referee.
"It's just a tough day. Forget about the fine," said Bryant.
Kobe apologized after Wednesday's game versus the Sacramento Spurs.
"It's not cool. I don't like bullying. Hate crimes are disgraceful. In the heat of the moment you say a lot of things you don't mean and that was certainly one of them," said Bryant.
