Costly Tweeting for Chandler and Amare

by November 30, 2009

According to the NBA, Tyson and Stoudemire didn’t wait long enough to update their followers on the minutiae of their lives, and it’s going to set them back a few bucks: “The NBA fined Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire and Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyson Chandler $7,500 each Sunday for posting to their Twitter accounts during games in violation of league rules. Stoudemire’s Twitter feed was updated during the Suns’ 126-111 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, and Chandler tweeted a message the same night while the Bobcats were on their way to a 116-81 win over Toronto.”
