Daryl Morey and the Philadelphia 76ers were each fined $ 75,000 for a tweet with the Curry brothers that the league viewed as manipulation.
Steph Curry posted a photo on Instagram last week after his brother Seth played a big game for Philly against Washington. Seth scored a team high of 30 on Philly’s win in Game 5 against the Wizards to win the series. Steph recognized his brother’s big game.
Morey then tweeted “Join em” on this picture
Morey claimed shortly thereafter that he did not want to manipulate malice or anything.
It’s hard to understand how Morey meant anything other than suggesting Stephen Curry team up with younger brother Seth. Morey should have told the older Curry that there was a lot of space on the 76ers train or something like that. It would have saved him a few coins in his pocket.
