    Magic's Gilbert Arenas fined for comments on Twitter

    Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas is back on Twitter

    Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas is back on Twitter
    By Zach McCann, Orlando Sentinel

    The NBA has fined Gilbert Arenas for comments made on his Twitter account, NBA spokesman Tim Frank confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday.

    The league did not specify how much the fine was for or which specific comments violated league rules.

    When informed of the fine, the Magic point guard took to – you guessed it – Twitter to express his frustration: "yesthe nba has fined me....for being to awesome..so i can give you the shoes for FREE but gotta charge you for the jokes... i cant believe i got fined..how 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.."

    Arenas, who's never been one to take himself seriously, continued to make light of the situation in his next Twitter messages: "its okay it all evens it self out..i get fined from the nba........im stealing cable from my neighbors..so bam bam jackpot...hahaha".



    And another joke: "i was gonna go to Texas de brazil for dinner but not now...cant afford the 49 dollars per person...unless i bring sum plastic containers".

    Arenas didn’t immediately return an e-mail message when the Sentinel asked him if he had any further comment about the fine.

    The Magic declined to comment on the fine or Arenas' Twitter account when contacted by the Sentinel.

    As long as Gilbert is throwing away money, he should invest in a spell checker.

    hahaha that dude's funny as hell.

    it's a shame people are so censored these days, no one can be real.

    so all we get are robotic "lebron interviews" that all say the same damn thing. people are so easily offended.

    Arrggghh.... I'm getting annoyed at the rate things are going these days. Our society is getting exponentially 'softer' every generation. Soon, it'll be illegal to be a comedian or to have a thought.

    And yet LeBron doesn't get punished for reacting to ref's. Wasn't there supposed to be a crackdown this year?
