    NBA fined Kahn and T'Wolves

    NEW YORK -- The NBA has fined Minnesota Timberwolves president David Kahn $50,000 for his comments about forward Michael Beasley's marijuana use.

    The league also fined the Timberwolves organization $50,000 Friday for what it called inappropriate comments.

    In an interview with 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, Kahn said the recently acquired Beasley used "too much marijuana" in the past but Minnesota's new power forward is maturing and was worth acquiring from Miami despite his off-court issues.

    "He's a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me that he's not smoking anymore," Kahn said in he interview, "and I told him that I would trust him as long as that was the case."

    We all like to poke fun at Kahn, but this is ridiculous. Why the **** do you get fined for this?

    Stern needs to stop fining GM's and start fining referee's for the dumb **** they do.

    Maybe it's a fine for idiotic GM decisions but it's being disguised with the Beasley comments...

    Stern is an idiot. He fines people for stupid ****. How does Ainge throwing a towel earn a fine? I know that's off-topic, but I had to vent.

    VERY dumb reason for a fine. He wasn't talking down on Beasley but speaking on his struggles and believing in him improving on it im confused on this one. Could he really be getting fined for comparing Dark to Webber and Stern just seen the tapes?

    I guess that makes all the fines OK. I always thought they went to the player's association.

    Lame fine, I mean this one is just ridiculous. Only reason I would think of is privacy, but not that Beasley has been private about his weed use.
