LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for comments directed at a referee during a recent game that have been strongly criticized by leading gay rights groups.

Television cameras caught the 13-times All-Star shouting an anti-gay slur at the referee shortly after he was called for a technical foul during Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
