Let's look on the bright side....this should totally make it clear to Magic that he needs to absolutely positively say nothing from now on. 

 

How hard can it be?

 

 

This is Magic we're talking about...LOL...

5/27/10 The NBA fined Atlanta owner Michael Gearon $25,000 for public comments he made regarding LeBron James (Cle) and other upcoming free agents, which violated the league's anti-tampering rules.

 

5/22/10 The NBA fined Dallas owner Mark Cuban $100,000 for public comments he made regarding soon to be (but not officially until July 1) free agent LeBron James, which violated the league's anti-tampering rules.

 

5/22/10 The NBA fined Phoenix president Steve Kerr $10,000 for public comments he made about LeBron James, which violated the league's anti-tampering rules.

 

6/3/14 The NBA fined Phil Jackson (NY GM) $25,000 for tampering for talking about the possibility of Derek Fisher (OKC) become the Knick's next head coach. NBA rules prohibit other teams from publically talking about other teams' up-coming free agents before July 1 (the free agency date).

 

12/15/05 The NBA fined Phil Jackson (LAL) $25,000 for violating the league's anti-tampering rule for Jackson's comments about the Lakers' future interest in Chris Bosh (Tor).

 

7/7/15 The NBA fined Dallas owner Mark Cuban $25,000 for publically commenting about LA Clippers free agent DeAndre Jordan. Although teams are permitted to negotiate with free agents during the July Moratorium (July 1-9), they can not publically talk about free agents.

 

The NBA fined Houston $150,000 for commenting about LA Lakers' free agent Dwight Howard's agreement to join the Rockets - league rules state that teams can not publically talk about free agents until the July Moratorium ends.

 

3/18/07 The NBA fined Charlotte $15,000 for public comments minority owner Michael Jordan made regarding underclassman Kevin Durant.

 

3/18/07 The NBA fined Golden State $15,000 for public comments coach Don Nelson made regarding underclassmen Greg Oden and Kevin Durant.

He played college ball at UNC so this is a good fit for multiple reasons.

MJ and Mitch both Carolina grads


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Yep good fit was a good gm for the most part but Deng/Moz was a major error. Good luck to him

Kinda wondering if it was the end of the comment that caused the fine? When Magic commented about Greek Freak putting Milwaukee on the map. Did the NBA interpret this as him talkin smack on the Bucks thereby implying it was a less attractive destination for FAs?
