After Mark Cuban told the "Ben and Skin" radio show that the Lakers might want to consider amnestying Kobe Bryant, Kobe dropped 38 points against Cuban's team and tweeted "Amnesty THAT" in response. Now it looks like Bryant isn't the only one unhappy with Cuban's comments.

The league is debating fining Cuban for saying that the Lakers should consider waiving Bryant via the amnesty provision, reports The Los Angeles Times. Cuban could be in hot water for violating tampering charges. Owners shouldn't discuss other team's business matters, contracts, or free agents. Cuban's comments did fit that criteria.

“If you look at their payroll, even if Dwight (Howard) comes back, you've got to ask the question: Should they amnesty Kobe?” Cuban said Friday. “So I'm just saying that hypothetically. When I say amnesty Kobe, I don't think they'd do it, but they've got some choices to make. Now, they're in a big market, but they're still limited. The Knicks, the same thing. Boston, same thing.”
Cuban is already the most fined NBA history; another fine would be unsurprising.
