EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Phil Jackson doesn't understand why Kevin Durant was upset with his comments about the Oklahoma City Thunder star getting superstar treatment from the referees.
The Los Angeles Lakers coach's line about the referees earned him a $35,000 fine from the NBA on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Jackson was asked about Durant, who led the league in free throws, and he said in part, "I think a lot of the referees are treating him like a superstar. He gets to the line easily and often."
