According to ESPN, Charlotte Bobcats owner/former NBA superstar Michael Jordan was fined $100,000 by the NBA for speaking publicly about the lockout and one of the league’s players.
Both are violations against the league’s policies which bans owners and employees from discussing the lockout or any players during the work stoppage.
It’s said that the NBA made it clear to everyone to NOT make any comments about the lockout in a league-wide memo stating that anyone who broke the rules could be fined up to $1 million!
In an Aug. 19 interview with The Herald Sun, a newspaper in Australia, the Charlotte Bobcats owner spoke extensively about the need for revenue sharing and mentioned Milwaukee Bucks’ Australian center Andrew Bogut.
Wow! The NBA means BUSINESS and I’m sure they want that money on time Mike.
