Arenas Fined $25,000 For Ignoring Media Policies

The NBA has fined Washington guard Gilbert Arenas $25,000 for not making himself available to the media.

The league also penalized the Wizards organization $25,000 on Tuesday for failing to ensure that its players are following NBA media interview rules.

Returning from a series of knee injuries that have limited him to 15 games in the last two seasons, Arenas has refused to talk to the press during the preseason. Ironically, much of his popularity comes from his personality and the popular blog he used to write.
