Phil Jackson, Lakers Fined $75,000 Each For Coach's Collective Bargaining Comments

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — A person familiar with the decision says the Los Angeles Lakers and Phil Jackson each have been fined $75,000 for comments the coach made about collective bargaining.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the league will not announce the fines.

The two fines come a day after the league fined Lakers star Kobe Bryant $100,000 for using a derogatory gay term in frustration over a referee's call.
