James Harden spoke his mind, and now he’s paying the price.

The NBA is fining the Philadelphia 76ers star $100,000 for publicly calling Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey a “liar” at an event in China last week.

That sizable fine of $100,000 is the maximum amount the NBA can fine any player.
