    The NBA has ordered Dwight Howard to pay a hefty fine for posting his two cents online.
     
    The Associated Press reports that Dwight, a center for The Orlando Magic, must pay $15,000 for bashing a referee on his blog. The baller was venting about his team’s loss to Detroit last week when he was fouled out early in the game.
     
    "How can that be, ya’ll? It was crazy. They called me for a charge on a flop, a push off when the defender was on me and two fouls on blocked shots,” Dwight wrote. 
     
    He was only on the court for about 16 minutes before he was benched, and he complained he hadn’t played “that little in a game since I was 10 years old in pee-wee ball. What really bothers me is they are letting guys hammer me at one end of the floor, yet I’m being called for everything."
     
    Dwight found out that free speech wasn’t free in this case. The league announced his fine on Tuesday.
     
    “I guess I’ve got to follow the rules,” He said after speaking with NBA officials about the payment.
