Referee Union Angered by Fine of Official in Rivers Incident

The NBA’s referees union has criticized the league for fining an official who was involved in a dispute with Celtics coach Doc Rivers.

Rivers was fined $25,000 Thursday for his postgame rant against Bill Kennedy, and the league also docked Kennedy an undisclosed amount. Rivers complained afterward that Kennedy goaded him into receiving a second technical foul and an automatic ejection.

Reaction: I applaud the league for stepping in and doing the right thing by fining the referee. The refs union is just doing this because they have to. If they didn’t step in to “protect” one of their own, then they wouldn’t be a very good union. Kennedy was out of line in what he did and deserved his fine, though it should be small since he doesnt earn anywhere near what Doc Rivers makes.
