The Chicago Bulls fined forward Tyrus Thomas $10,000 on Tuesday, one day after the rookie said he only was interested in the prize money at the NBA's slam dunk contest.
When asked if being around some of the game's greats could be beneficial for a rookie, he responded, "I'm just into the free money. That's it. I'll just do whatever when I get out there."

Tyrus Thomas needs to grow up. Nobody wants to here that crap
about the money.

Thomas has not been known for comments like this in the past. Might of been just a rookie mistake.
