Silas slapped with $10,000 fine

Cavs coach Paul Silas was fined $10,000 Thursday by team owner Dan Gilbert for his comments on turncoat Carlos Boozer. I guess the Cavaliers had to make a statement, but 10 grand is an awful lot of money, especially considering all Silas did was tell the truth.

“I’ve spoken to Paul about this and I’m confident he understands that it was completely inappropriate for him to speak in the terms that he did,” GM Jim Paxson said in a written statement. After what Boozer did to the Cavaliers, though, I’m sure Paxson found Silas’ comments perfectly appropriate and pretty damn funny too.
