Jackson fined again

The NBA dinged Lakers coach Phil Jackson a cool $35,000 today for his critical comments Tuesday about Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant receiving favorable calls from the referees. It’s Jackson’s second $35,000 fine this month. League punishment czar Stu Jackson nailed him for ripping the referees’ work after the Lakers’ loss to the San Antonio Spurs on April 4. Of course, that’s chump change when you’re making more than $12 million, as Jackson is this season. It sets up the Lakers-Thunder series quite nicely, don’t you think?
