No free speech under David Stern.

It's about time he gets fined for something. That ****ing ******* doesn't know when to shut up. Everytime you see him in a game he is running his mouth. Hopefully, more fines are coming.

good call by the NBA. even if he was right, you cant say that

Pocket change to him. If they expect him to stop over 25k, it's not going to happen.

Tack on the fact that the Celtics most likely picked up the fine.

anyone have the link to the interview?

He deserved the fine for dropping the F-bomb but who cares? They were treating Durant like Michael Jordan.

Its about ****ing time Kevin. I have been waiting for you to show a pulse. Seriously though this game was hard for me to watch because I really have enjoyed watching the Thunder all season. If you know anything about Oklahoma City then you understand why this city needs this team.

No excuse for the comments he made. That small fine (to him at least) probably won't stop him from doing it in the future though.

04-02-2010, 05:30 PM
I liked that he said it, yo.

Good to see some emotion out of a Celtic. I am waiting and waiting to see this from Rasheed, but unfortunately it looks like Sheed's having a tough enough time acting like he cares while on the court.

That officiating was turrrrrrrrrrrrrible!

I wanna know what he said...

04-02-2010, 06:09 PM
figured a fine was coming considering he dropped the f-bomb at a press conference. stern doesnt like his players to make public cussing outbursts like this, which is shown in the fine.

Here is what he said after the game. I'll edit it into my original post.
