Amir Johnson was seen using his cell phone on the bench during a playoff game on Saturday as the Philadelphia 76ers took on the Brooklyn Nets.

Johnson’s phone usage created a media storm witch culminated in the Sixers forward being fined by his own team. Joel Embiid said that Johnson was merely checking in on his sick daughter, but using a phone on the sidelines is a NBA rule violation.

On Sunday Johnson apologized for his usage of the phone, as well as the media attention it grabbed as the Sixers lost to the Nets.

Via Twitter:

Johnson was fined, he’s apologized for the distraction, and it’s time to move on. Hell, even Draymond Green thinks it’s no big deal.
