Gilbert Arenas fined by NBA for comments on Twitter

Well, that didn’t take long. The NBA has fined Gilbert Arenas for his tweets, just a little over a week after he returned to Twitter.

Arenas announced the fine, which was reported by the Orlando Sentinel, on Twitter. (The Sentinel helpfully compiled Arenas’ tweets.)

“yesthe nba has fined me….for being to i can give you the shoes for FREE but gotta charge you for the jokes… i cant believe i got do i explain this to the lady at the bank…this is gonna take another 40mins… or i could just write a check and if theres a lockout just cancel the check it and maybe they will forget…..i think that will work..”

The NBA confirmed the fine but did not specify which tweets got Arenas into hot water or how much the Orlando Magic guard was fined. With Arenas’ Twitter feed, it isn’t easy to tell. Was it the one about sexting? Could be, in the aftermath of Weinergate. We’ll let you judge for yourself from his body of work.

Arenas seemed pretty cool with the fine, tweeting: “its okay it all evens it self out..i get fined from the stealing cable from my bam bam jackpot...hahaha.”
