It had nothing to do with what the Guard said in his post. From AP-
Bucks rookie Brandon Jennings has been fined $7,500 for posting a message on his Twitter account after Milwaukee’s 108-101 double overtime win over Portland last weekend.
Jennings was fined for the timing of his post, not the content when he tweeted: “Back to 500. Yess!!! “500″ means where doing good. Way to Play Hard Guys.”
The fine was announced Friday before the Bucks played at Cleveland.
According to the NBA’s social media policy, players cannot tweet during game time, defined as beginning 45 minutes before the game starts and ending after players have finished talking to the media following the game.
Like a pro basketball player will say something
intelligent insightful to the press. “You know, we won the game and…..”
