National Basketball Association (NBA) Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler has been fined for refusing to give an official media interview.
ESPN reported on Thursday (Nov. 24) that the NBA office fined Butler $25,000 (about 33 million won) for violating the league’s interview policy.
The NBA added that Butler did not make himself available for an official media interview following the Heat’s 128-102 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the 2022-2023 NBA Eastern Conference Finals (best-of-seven) at the Casilla Center in Miami, Florida, on April 22.메이저사이트
The win gave eighth-seeded Miami a three-game lead over Boston and a chance to advance to the championship game.
Butler’s performance as the team’s “ace” was somewhat disappointing, however, as he finished with 16 points, eight rebounds, and six assists.
Miami allowed Boston to rally in Game 4 on the 24th, falling 99-116 to even the series at three games apiece.
