Mark Cuban Fined $25K For Twitter NBA Comments
Shortly after a 103-101 defeat by the Denver Nuggets, Mark fired up Twitter, logged on and penned the following: "How do they not call a tech on JR Smith for coming off the bench to taunt our player on the ground ?" So far as we can tell, it currently stands as the most expensive Tweet in history at just over $1136 per word. You see, the National Basketball Association slapped Cuban with a staggering $25,000 fine for his digital comments, proving that referee bashing won't be tolerated in any public fashion, even over Twitter.
As you can see below, Mark doesn't seem to take issue with being fined, and as his past illustrates, he firmly believes in paying the price for free speech. Still, $25,000 for a single Tweet? Should've made your profile private beforehand, Mark.
