LeBron James Fined 25K

James learned an expensive lesson (well, relatively speaking) after being eliminated by the Orlando Magic in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Commissioner David Stern said Thursday the NBA will fine James $25,000 for his conduct. He left Amway Arena without addressing the media or shaking the hands of any Orlando players. Stern said he spoke with James on Wednesday morning following his surgery in Cleveland to remove a benign growth in his jaw.

“He expressed to me that when he left the building and didn’t congratulate the Magic, he was wrong,” Stern said. “He will be talking to (the media) directly, but he asked me to express that to you, the Magic and the fans.”
