Nate McMillan Fined $25,000 for Comments on Refs

After expressing his feelings towards the refereeing over the first 4 games of the series, Nate McMillan was slapped with a $25,000 fine.  There were 2 other coaches involved, including the guy from the other bench.
The NBA has fined three coaches for publicly criticizing referees during the NBA playoffs.

Houston's Rick Adelman, Portland's Nate McMillan and Boston's Doc Rivers all were penalized $25,000.
I'm glad that Nate came out and said what he said.  I've been waiting all season for "Sarge" to step up and take one for the team.  Too often it feels like he is unwilling to take a technical or say something to the media when his team needs it. 

So how will tonight shape up? Loose? Tight?

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
