A little pregame present from the NBA to Phil Jackson: A $35,000 fine for comments the Lakers coach made about the referees after Game 3. Sound familiar? Via ESPN‘s Tim MacMahon:

Blaming the refs for Pau not playing like an allstar pf?
that is a joke how he always blames the refs, the lakers in the phil/kobe era have ALWAYS been at the beneficiary end of the officials, i hope someday more on this comes into the limelight, not much got out about the kings laker series where the fbi got involved and we basically found out it was rigged for the lakers, seriously no one talks about it anymore but if you watch laker games there all still called how they were back then its really bad for the game, o well go mavs!
@ angus: when I hear about arco possibly getting shut down, that’s what i always think about first. those sacto fans should have already had a championship. f*cking NBA.
Whiner, manipulator, douche.
You won a ton, PJ, so show some dignity.
@vtrobot: that was the series that got me thinking there is more than just the game on the floor that goes on in the nba, used to be a laker fan up until then. glad peja got some revenge today, its still a bummer what happened to sacto and those fans that kings team was one of the neatest and fun to watch teams ever assembled.
WOOOOWWW THIS IS SOOO PATHETIC!!!!!
IM TALKING ABOUT YOU SLAM COMMENTERS
IF THE LAKERS WERE WINNING RIGHT NOW YOU WOULD BE SUCKING THERE PEEWEE, BUT NOW THAT THERE OUT Y’ALL BE SIPPIN ON YOUR HATERADE!!!!!!!
^typical laker fan being ignorant and typing in all caps
Co sign angus. It doesn’t matter Phil Jackson won’t be remembered for the negative stuff regardless. Thanks for the memories Phil a career well deserved.
This is the respect Phil Jackson gets for retiring?
