I bet every Celtics fan behind the baskets will be throwing things every time a Cavs player takes a shot Friday, just to tick off Stern and the NBA. They ought to give out towels at the Garden especially for the occasion. :clap:

that would be hilarious and would love to see that happen. Lets see if Stern decides to fine all the fans, players, coaches, and owner too :p

I doubt Stern dares to show up at the Garden for anymore playoff games as some fan will surely throw a towel in his face.

Throw a towel at him? That's it? Because i would throw something a little heavier and bigger :smoking: .

Ainge did try to mess him up. But a 25K fine is too much. A fine at all is ridiculous. Just talk to the man telling him not to do it.

Why are people suprised by this? Ainge is the president and he's lowered himself to Bush league tactics. If it was your average fan doing it, it's not a big deal, but he's the President. Gotta show some class during a game. Esp when they have a big lead, it's like adding insult to injury.

Come on Stern. He is fining these guys for practically blinking the wrong way. This fine is so unnecessary. Like RapsChamp said, just tell him don't do it again.

I can understand why he'd throw towels.

First of all, everyone knows Danny Ainge is a tool. He was a tool as a player, as a coach, and now as a GM. He's had an extravagant explosive personality. Never liked the guy.


That being said, the NBA just wants to make money off of everything. Stern and his dictatorship can go to hell. Something needs to be done. I say after these playoffs are done, players, coaches, GMs and Owners should all get together and defame David Stern and his dictatorship NBA. Then, have the board of directors select a new commissioner for the National Basketball Association.

i could understand fining him if it was in the last minute and the game was tied, but the celtics were up 80-57.

come on, really? give him a T and call it a day

ainge may work for the organization, but when it comes down to it, he is a fan of his team just like you and i would be. this is ridiculous and stern is just turning into a bigger of an *** every day

This clearly will have ramifications that not only impact the NBA, but the NFL, CIA, UN, AND NAMBLA

Maybe he finds them appealing. Ever think of that? :p

i'll never forget when Bob Horry threw a towel in Ainge's face on the bench. He probably deserved it. Danny Boy is one big douchebag.

You, as a Kobe fan have the nerve to call another player a tool. what a joke

That's lame, seems like anyone not a part of the Cavaliers organisation, can't even take a **** without getting fined.
