Golden State Warriors‘ head coach Mark Jackson was fined $25,000 by the NBA for “making public comments in an attempt to influence the officiating,” the league announced.
Jackson did not shy away in front of the media following a physical and rough Game 5 between the Warriors and Nuggets.
His most incisive comment was claiming that the Nuggets had “hitmen” out to injure Stephen Curry, and he complained that Curry did not shoot a single free throw all game.
There has plenty of back-and-forth chatter between these clubs, who clearly do not like each other.
Regardless, Jackson has done his job, and I’m sure he would happily pay $25,000 if the Warriors win Game 6.
That, my friends, would literally be “buying a win.”
