Joey Wright fined $5k for league comments
Was asked after game one whether he'd follow up re: refs with the NBL and made a joke about how that would be something like "talk to Melbourne about Melbourne."
The NBL found comments Wright made about the league in the post-game press conference were inappropriate and warranted a sanction. The club has accepted the penalty.
There'd be a lot of fines handed out on Hoops if the NBL had any jurisdiction here!
As usual, the NBL then publicise what they deemed so offensive...
