James Harden spoke his mind, and now he's paying the price.
The NBA is fining the Philadelphia 76ers star $100,000 for publicly calling Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey a "liar" at an event in China last week.
That sizable fine of $100,000 is the maximum amount the NBA can fine any player.
The NBA reportedly launched an investigation after Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden called the team's president of basketball operations Daryl Morey "a liar" in front of an audience at an event in China recently. Harden also said he would "never be a part of an organization that [Morey's] a part of."
As part of its investigation, the league has reportedly been given an explanation for those comments.
