LeBron Tells Dahntay Jones He Will Take Care of Fine


Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Dahntay Jones had to stay away from the Air Canada Centre for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals Monday night while he served a one-game suspension for his punch to Toronto Raptors center Bismack Biyombo’s groin in Game 3.

But at least he won’t have to pay the fine associated with the suspension, a whopping $80.17, thanks to LeBron James. James told’s Joe Vardon on Monday that he would “take care” of the fine, which, in fairness, won’t even cost James his full per diem of $127.
