NBA Commissioner fines defends LeBron, fines Cleveland

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - NBA Commissioner David Stern has fined Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert $100,000 for his critical comments about LeBron James last week after announcing he was joining the Heat.

Gilbert released a statement following James' decision to leave the Cavaliers and sign with Miami, calling the decision "narcissistic" and "cowardly behavior."

Speaking from Las Vegas, Stern said James was entitled to decide to leave the Cavaliers for Miami. But he also added that James got bad advice not to talk to the Cavaliers before going public and that his live interview to announce his move to Miami was a huge mistake.
