Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for publicly criticizing the officiating. Cuban, who has been fined more than $1.5 million by the league during his 13 years owning the Mavs, expressed his frustration with the officiating on his Twitter page following the Mavericks' 99-96 overtime loss to New Orleans on Saturday. Cuban apologized to fans in the tweet, saying that he's ''tried for 13 (years) to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably'' and asking for their suggestions. An NBA spokesman confirmed the fine Tuesday. The league did not announce the penalty.

  • Whydoes"nt the commish look at the awful job some of these refs do and fine them instead of listening to the complaints of owners,players,fans and then just fining the owners or players?If the commish would hold a meeting with the owners without fining them to get their output on the refs,95% would show up.The only one that would"nt be there is Riley and the coach of the Heat because that team seems to hold favor with the refs.La Queen Jane fouls about 20times in each game and if he gets called for 1foul its a miracle.It seems like the refs are instructed not to call a foul on him.That is the only reason the Heat got their NBA title last year,because of the fouls that were called on their opponents.
