Kevin Durant Racks Up $15K Fine From NBA
Kevin Durant was fined $15,000 by the NBA following his public criticism of NBA referees, according to ESPN.
The comments happened on Tuesday, following the Golden State Warriors’ slim 123-112 victory against the Knicks. Durant was ejected from the game after receiving his second technical foul in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter. Following the game’s completion, KD came at official James Williams, accusing him of targeting him in the second half following an argument they had with one another earlier in the game. The next day at practice, however, Durant he agreed he was being an “a**hole” and deserved the punishment the league was going to dish out on him.
KD told ESPN, “I looked at the plays, a couple techs, and I was being an a**hole last night. I was being a jerk…That one foul at the end wasn’t a foul. I shouldn’t have slammed the ball down like I did. I can go back and say that I was being a jerk last night, and I deserve whatever the league is going to throw at me.”
The NBA refs accepted Durant’s apology:
