Stephen Jackson Fined for Trade Demand

You’re apparently not allowed to publicly voice your desire to play for another team. (And because I know someone will bring it up, here’s the reason Kobe didn’t get fined two years ago): “The swingman was fined $25,000 for ‘public statements detrimental to the NBA,’ the league said Tuesday. On Aug. 28, Jackson said he would like to be traded to Cleveland, New York or one of the Texas teams. ‘Players are not permitted to make trade requests publicly,’ the league said.”

    ‘public statements detrimental to the NBA’
    Jax gets waxed for being unpatriotic to the NBA. Players will be swearing an oath of allegiance next.

    The details might be different, but the principle (for which Jax is getting punished) is the exact same as what Kobe did.

    Then where’s Don Nelson’s fines for making his players make trade demands?
    Or his Hawaii contract holdouts?
