Default Radmonovic fined $500,000

Oops! Next time don't go skiing and then lie about your injury.


Quote:
The Lakers fined forward Vladimir Radmanovic $500,000 — about 10% of his salary this season — for a contract violation stemming from a snowboarding crash during the NBA All-Star break.

Radmanovic, out until mid- to late-April because of a separated right shoulder sustained in the accident, said he would not appeal the fine.

"It's fair for what I did. I just want to move forward and try to get healthy and get back on the court," he said.

Radmanovic, 26, is in the first year of a five-year, $30.2 million contract and he expressed relief that the Lakers did not take the drastic step of voiding his contract entirely.

He initially told Lakers officials he hurt himself while crossing the street after getting coffee in Park City, Utah. He admitted lying a few days later. It was his first time snowboarding.

"We discussed internally among our coach, ownership and management a variety of disciplinary options and thought that this was the fairest and most appropriate action," Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. "We consider this a closed issue now and look forward to Vlade's return to action, where he'll be able to use his talents to help our team."

Radmanovic, who is expected to miss 20-25 games but probably be back for the playoffs, is averaging 6.9 points and 3.4 rebounds.

Dumb mistake from Rad-Man. Hopefully he can come back soon for the Lakers. I have watched him some on league pass and he has better game than I thought. He looks to drive it rather than shoot it most of the time, unless he is wide open or has a big cushion.

Surprised the Lakers went public with this.

Also surprised at the severity of the injury. For his first time snowboarding, he shouldn't have been in any situation that would have caused him to get that hurt. Must've been the absolute wrong combination of circumstances.

The Rocky Mountain States haven't been kind to the Lakers. Kobe and Colorado. VladRad and Utah. Keep Oden out of Montana, Bynum out of Wyoming, I guess...

IMO even though he did the honorable thing by admiting his injury was in result of bailing on the slopes a harsh punishment is completley justified and all too necessary ... The Lakes are paying this guy a boat load of coin to play a friggin sport and the fact that he went down during such a pivotal time only made it worse. Now for the lakers sake, lets hope he heals better then he snowboards.
SNAP!
