Lakers fined $50000 for comments about Giannis Antetokounmpo

The league said in a statement Johnson had breached the NBA's anti-tampering rule in remarks about Antetokounmpo made in an interview with ESPN last week. That leaves the Bucks with a point guard rotation of Eric Bledsoe and whatever two-guard they want to put in charge of ball handling. I'm just happy he's starting in the All-Star game because he deserves that.

"He's special. A man that can handle the basketball like he can and be a great - he's probably the greatest athlete we have in the league today", Johnson told ESPN.

Delly went down against the Nets on Sunday and was sent back to Milwaukee on Monday for further evaluation on his ankle.

Gabon: Aubameyang Scores On Arsenal Debut, Sanchez Scores for United
And much to his relief, Sanchez tapped home the rebound after Jonas Lossl had saved his initial effort from the penalty spot. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has become the first Arsenal player to provide 3 assists in a Premier League game this season.

This seems harmless. He was asked a question in an interview and provided an answer.

Johnson has to remember, however, that he is part of an National Basketball Association front office now and can not comment on players the way he did as an analyst.

Obviously, the value of the previous fine makes it literally 10 times worse, but the National Basketball Association is watching the Lakers' front office closely and clearly not entusiastic about Johnson acting as an analyst for the league in his current offiical role with the Lakers.

Antonio Conte Sacking Speculation Ramps Up After Disastrous Chelsea Loss
According to the Daily Telegraph , the former Netherlands manager will be considered as an option should Conte be asked to leave. I worry now that the situation is just too far gone for him to come back from it.

Johnson was named the Lakers' team president in February 2017. He was also asked about Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, whom the Lakers had missed out on earlier in the offseason. As the Lakers cast an eye on free agency, the two are learning how sensitive things can be when it comes to tampering. "Cousins has a torn Achilles tendon, George has suggested to ESPN's Rachel Nichols that the Thunder have an advantage in re-signing him, and James is believed to have a reluctance toward signing with the Lakers without an established star immediately joining him", added the report, indicating that the Lakers could keep their core group together for another season.

Johnson was fined because of what he said if he happened to run into George. Speaking about it is in violation of the rules, no matter how tongue in cheek the comment was meant to be on a late-night show.
