Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol was fined $15,000 for swearing during a live postgame interview following Monday's win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the league announced.

Following the end of the Grizzlies' 11-game losing streak, one that cost former head coach David Fizdale his job, the 7-foot Spaniard giddily said, "we won, so f--- it," as he wrapped up a postgame interview.

Given that Gasol hadn't tasted a win in nearly a month, you could understand why spending $15,000 on a swear word felt like a worthy purchase at the time.
