George Karl, Andre Miller Receive $25K Fines

Pocket change for these two NBA vets, but bad behavior deserves at least a slap on the wrist. Via press release: “Denver Nuggets coach George Karl and Portland Trail Blazers guard Andre Miller have both been fined for separate incidents, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations. Karl has been fined $25,000 for public comments about the officiating following the Nuggets’ 113-112 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Dec. 16. Miller has also been fined $25,000 for throwing the ball in the stands following the Blazers’ 103-98 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 15.”

    25k to these guys is like $25 to most people.. With all these fines, instead of the rich getting richer, I wish it went back into the community..

    Shit is ridiculous. It ain’t like he nailed Brandon Roy in the back of the head with it.

    The refereeing in the Denver – San An game was at least questionable, so why fine GK for questioning it? Whether the right calls were made or not, David Stern knows that there is going to be human error in the officiating. This censorship of negative comments (to an extent) makes it seem that officials are above reprimand.

    Miller’s a bit of a hothead. Old-man anger. Hard to remember he was drafted as recently as ’99.
