New York:

Miami Heat owner Micky Arison has been fined by the NBA, three days after he made references to the locked-out league's ongoing collective bargaining process on his Twitter account.

The NBA did not disclose the amount of the fine, or say publicly why Arison was sanctioned.

Arison posted several tweets Friday night, including a reply to someone who referred to those involved with the lockout as "greedy ... pigs." Arison replied by saying "Honestly u r barking at the wrong owner."

That tweet was deleted a short time later.

The NBA typically prohibits owners from speaking publicly about the labour situation. Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan was fined in September after he told an Australian media outlet the NBA's current business model was "broken."
