Default phil Jackson fined for tampering, $25000

Phil Jackson fined for tampering with Thunder's Fisher |

Knicks President Phil Jackson has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for a tampering violation involving veteran guard Derek Fisher.

Jackson told reporters last week that Fisher is "on my list of guys that could be very good candidates" to coach the Knicks next season. Because Fisher is under contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, that was deemed to be in violation of league rules.

Not really. Consider this: What if Pat Riley had said that Bosh and Bron were on his short list and that Wade would actively try to persuade them to join the Heat, before the end of the 09-10 season?

That's clearly tampering and this is no different. Putting something out into the media that implies the possibility of giving anything to a player who is under contract with a different team affects the discourse and influences all parties directly and indirectly.

What if the Thunder were trying to convince Fish to stay another year? Do you see how a (lucrative) offer to coach from Phil might change his opinion?

That's tampering.

Phil prolly thought he was still just a regular dude. He's got to actually read the rules and regulations in the book of How to be the GM in the NBA. Not just skim through the picture captions.
