Possible fine for Radmanovic

OAKLAND — Vladimir Radmanovic hasn't yet formally apologized to teammates, but they're aware of his admission of guilt.

"They're calling him 'Slalom Vlade,' " Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said.

The Lakers haven't decided whether they will fine him for lost time since his confession that a separated right shoulder was caused by a snowboarding spill, not a fall on a slippery sheet of street ice in Park City, Utah, his initial explanation. He is banned from snowboarding in his contract and will miss seven more weeks.

"There's a few things to clear up," Jackson said. "I think that we'll come to terms with that this next week, and then we're moving forward."

Radmanovic was bothered by a sprained ligament in his right hand earlier in the season, but it is feeling good enough that he will not get surgery on it while he sits out to rest his shoulder.

Eh, he's not a loser but he's not the player they paid for. He's year was that 2005 and hasn't done much since.

I suspect they can't void his contract on this one- though I bet they wish they could.

What would the spurs FO do to a player who got hurt in unnecessarily risk behavior, like water skiing, mountain biking, motorcyle, etc?

Judging by the S-Jax example, I don't think that the Spurs FO would offer a MLE / 5-6 years contract to a person with character issues. No matter how talented.

Sure they can. He violated his contract. It's voidable.

What they need to do is not pay him for the entire time he is on the injured list.
