Will TWill Be Fined for LeBron Foul?

The sideways slam that Terrence Williams laid on LeBron James in the third quarter is likely to lighten his wallet, at least according to one writer.  Ira Winderman, who covers the Heat and the NBA for several media outlets, thinks the big issue for the commissioners office is not what TWill did, but what he said afterwards.

"When people are going to the hole and throwing behind-the-back and dunking and stuff like that, you have to do something about that," Williams said. While his coach said he didn't think TWill deserved a flagrant and James himself said he didn't think it was a "dirty play", Winderman writes in David Stern's new NBA, Deputy Commissioner Stu Jackson "has no choice but to throw down his hammer".
