That's ridiculous the NBA picked this particular game, he posts a Twitter message right after EVERY game.

I think this is stupid.. it takes about a minute to post something on your phone.. and seeing as how its twitter and the messages are short anyway, its illogical to think that its such a big deal.

They should worry about things that diminish good performance.. how the hell does posting something, post game.. take away from his professionalism??

Thats what Im saying.. Its menial, a twitter is as easy to post as sending a text message.. Not only that, but using the service actually is promoting basketball merchandise.. the players and by association the rest of the NBA.

I think that these players actually rile up interest by the things they say, and thus keep certain people involved in the situation.. which directly helps the NBA.

Yeah it's probably just Commish Stern's ploy to get Jennings more media attention, in preparation for his stardom.

I thought this was because of what he posted, not because he posted it.

League needs to get with the times.

Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks has been fined $7,500 for posting a message on his Twitter account in violation of NBA rules, it was announced today by NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations Stu Jackson.

On Saturday, Dec. 12, a message was posted on Jennings’ Twitter account immediately following the Bucks’ 108-101 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in Milwaukee.


It doesnt refer to any specific topic or comment, merely that he posted during a 'violation time'.

The NBA doesn't want people to know how truly pathetic the East actually is.

He got fined for bad grammar, not for the tweet.
