Morey's tweet about Steph leads to hefty tampering fine


Daryl Morey's pockets will be a little lighter this week, as he and the Philadelphia 76ers each have been fined $75,000 for violating the NBA's anti-tampering rules regarding a tweet about Warriors star Steph Curry, the league announced Monday.

Morey posted the below tweet on June 3 with a screenshot of an Instagram post from Curry shouting out his brother, Seth, who plays for Philadelphia.

The president of basketball operations for the 76ers attempted to walk it back in a reply to the tweet, but it appears the damage already had been done.

Morey long has been a rival of the Warriors, as he spent more than a decade in the Houston Rockets' front office. He's tweeted about the Warriors before, as he famously sent a congratulatory note to the Warriors after every playoff series win Golden State had over Houston.

Clearly, he will think twice before mentioning the Warriors star in any social media posts going forward.
