Barkley: Jordan’s Fine ‘A Drop in the Bucket’
Charles Barkley doesn’t feel sorry for his buddy Michael Jordan, who recently was fined $100,000 for talking about the NBA lockout, but Barkley doesn’t like the league’s gag order.
“Well, it’s a drop in the bucket for sure,” Barkley said Thursday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “But I don’t like all those rules about not talking about the lockout.”
The NBA had issued a memo before the lockout began on July 1, warning that any team owner or employee who discussed the lockout or any player during the work stoppage could be fined up to $1 million.
