Default NBA denies that S-Jax was fined for talking to himself

The NBA strongly denies a contention by Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson that he was fined $50,000 essentially for talking to himself following a Friday loss. The league levied one of the heftiest fines ever for "verbal abuse of game officials'' Saturday. Jackson contends he was talking to himself following a 97-90 loss and that he wasn't within earshot of the referees as he left the court. Charlotte Observer

"The refs heard comments directed at them,'' Frank told the Observer on Sunday. "And there is video evidence he was yelling at the referees.'' Charlotte Observer

Jackson: "I walked off the court, upset about the outcome of the game. I guess they had a camera following me all the way to the tunnel, where I wasn't even in sight of the referees and (someone) read my lips. "I guess I can't talk to myself. I got fined for talking to myself.'' Charlotte Observer
