One of the funniest trends in the world right now is the GoFundMe campaign a fan started to help pay off Dahntay Jones technical foul fines from this year’s postseason. The veteran received two technical fouls when he played against the Raptors and one against the Golden State Warriors before he even played a game! The first technical foul had a fine of $2000, with each one after increasing by $1000. This led to the grand total of $9000, just $127 short of Jones’ salary this season.
Dahntay Jones’ playoff fines are now up to $9,000. Season salary was $9,127. https://t.co/WEbzMgi3nV

How might an NBA player salary be only $9127? It was a prorated minimum salary that only reflected one game since that was when Jones was signed to the Cavaliers. Maybe LeBron needs to negotiate his contract too.
