To be clear, he was fined for tampering but the reason he was fined wasn’t tampering.
This tweet, that got deleted minutes after being automatically posted by a third party app, is not tampering. Like, at all. Which brings up the question of why or what was he actually fined for.
Feels more like the NBA was just looking for something to maybe send a message for PHI to stop doing other things in regards to Harden https://t.co/gAWSYrqeLu— Dan Greenberg (@StoolGreenie) December 28, 2020
Greenie brings up a decent enough point. I just don’t know what the Sixers and/or Morey did in the whole Harden saga that would warrant a fine. Honestly, I don’t expect more details to come out but it is strange to see teams getting in trouble for tampering. A few years ago it was just a joke on Twitter and no one actually seemed to care and now there’s somewhat serious consequences.
