Default Stephen Jackson fined $50K, Ref's "Read his lips"

If this is true, this is outrageous. I think that the league is going wayyy too far.

"Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson became the latest target of the NBA's crackdown on behavior when he was fined $50,000 on Saturday for verbally abusing the referees after a loss to Detroit a night earlier."

"I walked off the court upset about the outcome of the game," Jackson said. "I guess they had a camera following me all the way to the tunnel and I wasn't even in sight of the referees and read my lips. I guess I can't talk to myself. I got fined for talking to myself."

I'm reluctant to say anything bad about David Stern and the NBA. It's beginning to seem I'm liable to receive a fine.

That is stupid.

I want to hear the other side of the story though, it Jackson's story was ridiculously one-sided. But if that is what happened, Stern should be fined 50K.

He's probably got goons lurking on this site just waiting to hand down a fine to one of us.

What the fuck?

Something has to be done... Players aren't allowed to show emotion? even off the court? Out of fans sites? in the Tunnel?

What are they supposed to be ROBOTS?

this is bullshit

Interesting fact. Rasheed led the NBA in technical fouls in 7 seasons.
