Mark Cuban fined $50,000 for criticizing referees
The NBA has fined Mark Cuban $50,000 for making critical Twitter comments about league officiating.
The Dallas Mavericks owner was unhappy after the Mavericks lost to the New Orleans Hornets on Saturday and tweeted:
“Im sorry NBA fans. Ive tried for 13 years to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably. Any Suggestions ? I need help.”
The Mavericks were called for 20 fouls in the game, the Hornets 10.
Cuban is no stranger to fines. The latest assessment pushes his total to about $1.8 million in fines since he bought the Mavs in 2000.
