05:03 AM ET 11.08 | There's an old cliche sports writers and announcers love to bust out whenever something happens to a rookie. We've all heard it and dread to hear it every time the NFL debuts a rookie quarterback who is sacked or the NBA sees a rookie get dunked on by a superstar. "Welcome to the League, rookie." For Sacramento Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, the slogan sounds more like, "Welcome to the League, open up the wallet and have a seat." In the Kings game Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons, late in the fourth quarter, Chuck Hayes allows the ball to go out of bounds and the whistle to be blown, but Robinson does something so blatant and stupid, only watching it on video does it justice. Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko is draped all over Robinson's back and even though the whistle had just been blown, Robinson was having none of it and threw a nasty elbow into Jerebko's jaw, an action that got him booted from the game, will result in definite fine and a likely suspension. Welcome to the NBA, rookie.

For the responsibilities that this young man has on his plate it's quite unfortunate that he used poor judgement, but like his coach said, "I'm sure this won't happen again any time soon"... Money PAID, hopefully lesson LEARNED!
