NBA Fines Cavs Coach Scott, Celtics Wilcox, Spurs Jackson

8489907The NBA handed down three separate fines on Sunday for three different infractions.

First off, remember the tweet that Stephen Jackson sent out about a few days ago? Well, that’s deleted now and even though Captain Jack apologized in Instagram about it, once it’s on the internet, it’s there forever. Anyway, saying things like that to Serge Ibaka in a public forum is probably not the smartest thing to do as the NBA was surely watching. Jackson was slapped with a $25,000 fine for threatening Ibaka.

Next, Chris Wilcox was fined $25,000 for giving the middle finger to the Kiss Cam in Philadelphia. Apparently, Wilcox was not amused when he and teammate Jared Sullinger was shown on the Kiss Cam so he flipped the bird. Have a little sense of humor, will ya, Chris? Anyway, it was obviously the smart move to give the middle finger in front of 20,000 people when someone’s playing a joke on you.

Finally, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott was fined $25,000 for criticizing the officials after a 91-73 loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Here’s what he said that got his wallet a little lighter:

From the Cleveland Plain-Dealer:

After that game, Scott said: “I’m trying to figure out a way to say this without getting fined. It was that bad. I understand that we’re playing in Minnesota but we went to the basket just as much as they did. I think we had 38 attempts in the paint to their 34, and we get 9 free throws. I think that speaks for itself.”

Saying “trying to figure out a way to say this without getting fined” is basically feeding the NBA baby some candy. But that’s just ammunition for the league. While Tom Pestak disagrees with Coach Scott, it does take away momentum and deflate the team when whatever you’re trying is not working and getting the referees’ attention.

So maybe you players and coaches shouldn’t threaten players on a public forum, flip the camera off, or criticize the officials. That might get you fined by the NBA.
