The Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings has been fined $10,500 for posting a message on his Twitter account immediately after an NBA game.

A message was posted on Jennings's Twitter account following the Bucks' 108-101 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

NBA rules state that all game-related activities, like post-game interviews, must be completed before players can post messages on their Twitter accounts.
