Draymond Green Fined $25,000 For Publicly Criticizing Refs

Draymond Green has been slapped with a hefty fine by the NBA for publicly criticizing the league’s referees.

“It’s ruining the game…It should be one of, if not the main priority, to be solved. It definitely should,” Green said on Saturday, just days after refs’ calls affected the outcome of several previous games. “They can get a new crop [of referees], a whole new crop…Too many personal things going on. Too much me against you. It just don’t work that way.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I feel like, if I was a ref, and if all year constantly, every game, all game, players from both sides were talking to me, trying to tell me how to do my job, I would feel a certain type of way coming into games, sometimes,” he continued. “But as players, we just want a nice dialogue. We want to be able to talk it out there.”
As a result, the NBA has hit the Golden State Warriors star with a $25,000 fine for his statements. According to reports, this fine comes just three months after Green was fined the same amount for a fight with Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal.
