In a podcast, Andre Iguodala of the Warriors apologises to Joe Lacob for the $500k punishment.

Andre Iguodala did not receive an entire ESPYs segment to advertise his podcast, in contrast to his Golden State Warriors teammate Draymond Green. 

But Iguodala may have gotten the upper hand on Wednesday night because his performance cost Golden State owner Joe Lacob a tidy $50,000.

Iguodala slipped in a comment as the Warriors were accepting the Best Team trophy.  

Iguodala explained, "I just came up here to promote my podcast Point Forward with my friend Evan Turner. Joe Lacob was recently fined $500,000; I'm sorry, Joe.

On Wednesday, Lacob was fined $500K by the NBA for saying that homegrown clubs like the Warriors were treated "very unfairly" by the league's luxury tax.

Because of the way our club is constructed, I believe the system is really unfair, Lacob stated on Iguodala's podcast. 

This team selects players from the top eight. In Santa Cruz, we discovered and fostered some undrafted players. 

According to ESPN, the NBA has a rule banning "unauthorised communications involving collective bargaining."
