For the fourth time this season, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was ejected from a game Tuesday night against the New York Knicks.
It came after he thought a foul was called on him late in the fourth quarter. Durant then took up arguing with the official on the court in Oakland, receiving his second technical of the game.
Durant immediately took to the media to criticize officiating after the game prior to apologizing for his on-court behavior.
Apparently, this has not saved the reigning NBA Finals MVP from receiving a fine. The Associating reportedly levied a $15,000 punishment in the forward’s direction on Thursday.
Kevin Durant gets $15k fine from NBA for his postgame comments about refs after the Knicks game, I’m told.

Durant has had issues keeping his emotions in check thus far this season. And it has come at the same time that teammate Draymond Green has let everyone know about his opinion of officiating in today’s NBA.
