League fines Gilbert Arenas for twitter comments

Jun 8, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT


Gilbert Arenas returned to twitter just in recent weeks  — @agentzeroshow — and already the league has fined him.

The league would not specify which tweets from Arenas got the fine or how much it was for, according to the Orlando Sentinel. It could be any number of jokes to or about women (although frankly, there are far more offensive things tweeted by NBA players than anything Arenas said).

As you would expect, Arenas turned to twitter to vent his frustrations (compiled by the Sentinel).

“yesthe nba has fined me….for being to i can give you the shoes for FREE but gotta charge you for the jokes… i cant believe i got do i explain this to the lady at the bank…this is gonna take another 40mins… or i could just write a check and if theres a lockout just cancel the check it and maybe they will forget…..i think that will work..”

You gotta love Gilbert Arenas… unless you’re the Magic and have that contract on your books.

    It wasn’t long ago that the NBA was thought to be “too black” and “drug-infested” to crossover to mainstream America. Former NBA deputy commissioner, Simon Gourdine, helped change all of that. He must be somewhere shaking his head that current players are jeopardizing the goodwill built up by Dr. J, Larry Bird, Magic, Jordan, Barkely, etc. >>

      Frankly the league should be more concerned about PEDs than whether the league is “too black.” WTF is that phrase even supposed to mean, anyway?

    Gilbert probably knows he doesn’t deserve the money he’s using to write those checks anyways.
