Three Warriors stars fined for criticizing officiating

Stephen Curry

The Golden State Warriors were disgusted with the officiating in their overtime loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, and the way certain players aired their grievances has cost them a lot of money.

On Tuesday, the NBA announced that Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant have all been fined for remarks they made about officials. Each was fined a different amount, with Draymond Green being hit the hardest for taking his criticism to social media.

It’s somewhat surprising that Curry didn’t face the steepest fine, as he openly taunted an official after making a three-pointer to tie the game late in regulation. The refs called a petty foul on Durant on the ensuing possession, and both he and Curry were critical of the call following the loss.

Green, who was assessed his 15th technical foul of the season in the game, sent a couple of cryptic tweets after the game that appeared to connect referee Marat Kogut, who made the call on Durant, to disgraced former NBA official Tim Donaghy.

Even if Green tried to pretend his tweets didn’t mean what we all knew they did, the NBA obviously didn’t believe him.
