Michael Jordan Fined 15,000 for Mentioning Durant [David Stefanini]

NBA teams and presidents are not allowed to speak about players who are not yet declared themselves available for the NBA Draft. Michael Jordan found this out the hard way when he got slapped with a $15,000 fine.

Jordan said he was interested in versatile players and stated, "The kid who may present that is the kid in Texas. (He) may have that because he has all the right signs."

Jordan is a legends, an icon, and a god. But not even gods can break the rules around David Stern. Next time I am sure Jordan will read the rule book before saying something about players who are still in college.
