Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of the officiating, it was announced today by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.
Robinson made his comments following the Nuggets’ 97-95 victory over the New York Knicks on Friday, Nov. 29, at Pepsi Center in Denver.
Robinson on referees to the Denver Post following a win over the Knicks:
“They hate me, they hate me,” he said. “I don’t know why, but it is what it is. I already know I’ve got the target on my back, but I’ll play through it; I don’t care. I really don’t. It doesn’t bother me none. If I get a call, I get a call. If I don’t, I don’t. If I get a tech, hopefully it’s not in the fourth quarter. Hopefully I don’t get any more. But I know I will. It’s nothing new for me.”
Robinson was previously fined $10K in the preseason for a shove on OKC’s Steven Adams.
