http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5404989NEW 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?
