League Fines Mark Jackson for Comments
Prior to Game 6 of the first-round series between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets, the NBA fined Warriors head coach Mark Jackson $25,000 for “making public comments in an attempt to influence the officiating.”
Mark Jackson: For two years, I’ve taken pride in not ever criticizing the referees. In reading the statement about the fine, I’m glad I was not fined for criticizing the referees. … I’m $25,000 lighter, but I’m smiling.
