Tom Thibodeau Was Fined $35,000 for Postgame Comments

Tom Thibodeau Was Fined $35,000 for Postgame CommentsAP

"I see how things are going, I watch very closely. We're not going to get calls, that's reality."

Seems like an level-headed, opiniated statement, but that's just the type of comment that will earn you a fine in the NBA (psstt...peep the chart). Tom Thibodeau was no exception, as he got fined $35,000 for making the above comment after the Bulls' loss in game three. The comment concerned Nazr Mohammed's ejection after he shoved LeBron James to the ground.

To the Chicago head coach, it looked like James flopped: "From my angle, I saw a guy basically flop. I don't think it warranted an ejection. I understand a flagrant foul, I understand that, but ejection, no, nope."

Thibodeau had no comment about the fine when he was asked about it. It ain't worth risking another fine it seems.
