NBA Fines Phil Jackson $35,000

by April 16, 2010

It seems as though Phil gets fined by the League each year in the Playoffs for getting on the refs, and some would argue that it’s nearly always a wise investment from the Laker coach: “Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson has been fined $35,000 for publicly criticizing game officials, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations. Jackson was fined for comments made to the media on April 13.”
