Fifteen minutes after the Bucks defeated the Blazers in double overtime last December, Jennings tweeted his elation at his team getting back to .500.
"Back to 500. Yess!!!," he wrote. "'500' means where doing good. Way to Play Hard Guys."
But Jennings violated an NBA rule that bans tweeting in games and until players have fulfilled media requirements. The NBA fined him $7,500 as a result, and Jennings questioned the rule in response, noting that he was only tweeting his excitement over a victory.
"I understand I got fined, but 7,500?" he wrote. "For being happy over a win, you would of thought I said something bad. I mean it was a big win for us."
