KG fined $25,000
By Chris Forsberg
That's one expensive curse word.
Celtics forward Kevin Garnett was fined $25,000 by the NBA for publicly criticizing game officials and using inappropriate language during a postgame interview.
The announcement was made Friday by Stu Jackson, the league's executive vice president for basketball operations.
Garnett was fined for comments he made following the Celtics' 109-104 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday. Thunder forward Kevin Durant made all 15 of his free throws against Boston, prompting Garnett to say, "I thought we were playing Michael [expletive] Jordan the way he was getting the whistle. Durant damn near shot more free throws than our whole team."
Boston went 13 for 17 from the line. The Thunder finished 28 of 34.
