Luol Deng's "Africa-Awareness" Shirt May Get Him Fined

The most lucrative and successful sports franchises have a lot of rules. For better or worse they employ tons of restrictions to keep fans, players, crew and owners happy. Sometimes though, they do seem silly. 

Luol Deng, who obviously had his heart in the right place, wore a T-shirt during the pre-game to the NBA All Star night honoring Africa and raising awareness on issues. Though, the NBA could fine him.

"If I get fined, I'm OK," he said to ESPN. "To me, what I did is worth it for me. I wouldn't do something that's negative. I'm not advertising anything. I just felt like being where I'm from and where I came from, it's something that I always wanted to see as a kid. I'm sure there's a kid out there, or a lot of kids, who really enjoyed it and made them happy to see that."

He sounds right to us, but the NBA can't let people advertise their causes all over the league. What do you think?
