Kickert and Wright fined for tweets




Kickert's tweet called the 36ers "Adelaide Thirty Snitches" and has since been deleted. Wright's response is still up (for now).

But adelaide have no money!!!! What will Joey do!? Maybe should've been the mature bigger person being a coach and all to start with. He abused Brisbane, a team he coached a title with as well. Bit of entertainment for a Thursday though.

Fined for tweeting but not a head butt? Really?

Penalised for both, I could handle, but ignoring a physical assult and imposing a fine for a few albeit ill-chosen words ... I'm verging on wordless.

By the way, the 'snitches' line is a clear admission from the perpetrator that there was a head butt. If there was no butt there was nothing to 'snitch' about.

Nah they are trying to outlaw stupidity. I get it, pathetic at playing the cop, but atleast understand the meaning behind it. And kickert was penalised, you may disagree with the type of punishment but to say this tweet thing was penalised but not the physical act is incorrect. This is the beginning of the end for Joey Wright though, the vultures have started circling and cracks are appearing.

A coach probably shouldn't be tweeting like that, there's an understandable warning or small penalty.

I'd have let the banter go from the players side of things. It wasn't that bad.

I think some players need to show a lot more professionalism on social media and this fine is a step in the right direction.

While it was amusing, I agree with with the NBL fining both parties. You need to nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand and it really isn't a professional look.
Funny to see that Kickert bitches off the court as much as he does on the court and Joey needs to not take the bait so easily.

Having said that this will certainly add some spice to the game on Saturday and probably get a few more people interested. Interesting to see who comes out on top.

Right or wrong there is definitely a different set of rules for players and coaches on social media. The amount of players in the NBA who have said things been caught sending dick pics etc but if pop did it well he would be out of a job. Leaders lead players play. So yeah as a fan I like seeing players show interest in their profession, coaches need to sit the hell down and just coach. Joey doesn't play anymore.

I'm not against players showing personality but blaming the other team for dobbing on him after he was punished is retarded. Its not banter, he was being a sook.

Firstly, I think Kickett behaved like a juvenile sook.
But I don't know if the NBl needs to get involved? Let the twitterverse see that he's sooking like a little kid, and leave it at that.

Possibly they felt compelled to act by Joey's retort? Its harmless, but not very professional for a Coach.

And, IMHO, a reprimand probably would have been better.
A $500 fine may not be much for someone like Kickett, but it draws a comparison between that and the headbutt.
Also, sets a precedent. You fine a Kickett that much, what happens when a DP does it? Fine them the same amount?

Good on Joey for sticking up for his players, I for one think it's great he did it. Better than sitting in the background, at least he has some passion for his team.

Joey has passion for Joey. Best way he could actually stick up for his team is to teach fundamental defensive principals. Unless he starts teaching and fans don't see any signs of improvement he will be able to get sucked in to all the twitter wars he wants without any fines coming his way. It's sad a coach would get caught up in that stuff.

Good for a laugh, nothing much in it. Makes for an interesting match on Thursday. I think some of the reactions in here are more of an over-reaction than a bit of comedic byplay on twitter.

Looking forward to the post-match fight.

Kickert certainly has the reach advantage, but Joey has experience and will likely be the less fatigued of the two.

Now Randle's had a go too...

Lol. The only person I saw running their mouth off toward Joey was Randle himself, when he was subbed off. He then walked away while HIS coach was speaking to him.

The Adelaide guys need to calm the hell down! they shouldn't be getting into this stuff, when they suck! They don't play defense and they will be smashed in Brisbane. Different if they have the game style to back it up etc, but this is just embarrassing. And its getting a little bit pathetic now. Joey has definitely set a culture.

Randle's tweet has got to be an NBL record for longest trash talk tweet by an import without a typo.

I think it's more about geeing themselves up for the game. Randle knows he was humiliated by Craig on the weekend so is trying to build himself up for a big one. I hope he does play a lot better obviously but he's going to look real silly if Craig shuts him down again.

As much as Kickert should pipe up and concentrate on basketball, he has a point.

The NBL openly chastised those tweets, now they are leveraging off those same tweets to hype up tonight's game.

Double standards.

It's typically hypocritical of the NBL to use those tweets to promote the game yet hand out fines for them being created in the first place! If I was Joey or Kickert I would be asking for a please explain also.
