The first round of the NBA playoffs has been awesome so far: two triple doubles from MC Bron Bron, a Paul Pierce Buzzer-beater to ice the Miami D-Wades, a fantastic 8th seed crushing a cocky as humanly possible 1 seed to even up the series (OKC vs. LA game 4…Let’s pretend game 5 never happened) and four young point guards (Brandon Jennings, Derrick Rose, Russel Westbrook and Rajon Rondo) showing the world that the next crop of PGs, much like Magic Johnson is definitely sick with it. But those aren’t the only stories so far. The NBA has also doled out an astonishing amount of fines for players and coaches criticizing refs. Dwight Howard, Eric Dampier, Rasheed Wallace, Matt Barnes, Stan Van Gundy and Phil Jackson have all been fined $25,000 or $35,000 for taking issue with the officiating, which has been pretty awful thus far. It’s not unfathomable to think that refs. may influence games to extend series. After all more games = more kesef. So, are these fines too much? Or should the players simply quit kvetching?
