Well, no big surprise here. Paul George was quite vocal about his feelings after last night’s loss to the Miami Heat. He clearly wasn’t willing to take responsibility for his team’s struggles, so, the referees are a good enough scapegoat. Now, he’ll pay the price for his words. The NBA has fined Paul George $25,000 for public criticism of the officiating. — Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) May 27, 2014 George’s comments about “home cooking,” and other remarks about the Heat attempting 34 free throws led to the fine. — Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) May 27, 2014 This is a perfect representation of Indiana’s struggles. They lose a game, and instead of looking at themselves in the mirror, the attention goes directly to something else. $25K will hurt PG’s pockets, but I’m sure an exit in the Eastern Conference Finals would hurt much more. It doesn’t seem like we’re very far away from that happening. @JrMarkyMark The post Paul George Fined $25,000 For Complaining About Officiating appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
