Rodman, Mourning Fined $5,000 Each

The NBA fined Chicago Bulls forward Dennis Rodman and Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning $5,000 each Wednesday for getting into a fourth-quarter scuffle during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Mourning and Rodman became entangled with 8:14 to play in Miami's 87-80 victory Monday and tumbled to the floor.

Plummer also was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault.

He will have to serve at least 85 percent of his prison term, or almost 13 years, before he can be considered for parole. He lost his right to appeal when he pleaded guilty in the case.
