Shaquille O’Neal has been fined $35,000 for public comments about the officiating, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
Well we predicted this on Saturday after Shaq let loose on Bob Delaney. The biggest question for me was would it be a $25,000 or a $50,000 dollar fine. Ended up in the middle. Can't really suspend Shaq a game, since he takes every other game off anyway. I'm glad Shaq spoke up though. Can't stand refs that think the game is about them.
