For as great as Twitter has been connecting players with their fans, it has also caused some NBA guys to lighten their wallet. Stu Jackson, the NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, announced today that Brandon Jennings (a.k.a. @YUNGBUCK3) has been fined $7,500 for posting a message on his Twitter account immediately following the Bucks’ victory over the Blazers in Milwaukee on Saturday, Dec. 12.
After the game, at 11:39 PM, Jennings posted: Back to 500. Yess!!! “500″ means where doing good. Way to Play Hard Guys.
Maybe it’s just me, but not sure that was worth $7,500.
What do you think?
