Should the NBA stop fining head coaches for criticizing NBA officials?

no. but because i'm bored, i thought about something.
refs in the nba now are just terrible. the nba should start giving refs a "personal foul" or "warning" for every bad call they make. once they reach let's say 6 warnings, they would receive a fine or something like that.

it's sad how nba players get punished for mistakes they make on and off the court, but the refs get away with mistakes they make.

I think they should let the coaches say what they want. It's breach of their first amendment rights if you ask me. You can't criticize??? Seriously, sometimes they deserve it.

The NBA should start handing out fines to officials that don't call the game the way it is supposed to be called.

The coaches should be allowed to voice their disproval over terrible officiating.

The finings are good. When the coaches mouth off about the league or about officiating they know they'll have to pay. It's their choice. Besides you can't just mouth off about your employer whether you're right or wrong.

So, let em have their say, and let em pay for the privilege.

No. It leads to no good whatsoever. The NBA is already turning into enough of a sissy-whiny sport.

Love how PJ is the only one getting fines when George Karl has complained about refs in a post game conference and he didn't get ****, how is that justified?

freedom of speech has limits..I dont care if they fine but do it FAIRLY, George Karl should have gotten a fine in the WCF and PJ got 2 (which were deserved).
