NBA commissioner David Stern has decided to fine LeBron James $25,000 for skipping the mandated press conference after being defeated by the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.

James is apparently sorry that he did not shake hands with the Magic after the Cavs' loss and regrets not attending the press conference.

Nevertheless, rules are rules, and King James doesn't get to break them.

I am personally very disappointed in this star's immature behavior.
