ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)—The NBA has fined Lakers coach Phil Jackson $25,000 for criticizing the officials during Game 4 of the finals.

The league also penalized the Lakers $25,000 on Saturday for Jackson’s comments, which came during an interview with ABC between the first and second quarters of their 99-91 overtime victory Thursday.

Jackson said there were some “bogus” calls after the Lakers’ Pau Gasol(notes), Lamar Odom(notes) and Andrew Bynum(notes) each picked up two fouls in the first quarter.

Do you think he was wrongly fined, and that referee calls were truly bogus? Would the calls have made a difference? Discuss.
