ESPN is reporting that Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul has been fined $25,000 for his public criticism of Lauren Holtkamp, the first-year referee who called a technical foul against his this week.

The NBA announced the fine Saturday, two days after Paul sounded off on Holtkamp following the Clippers' loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Some of [the technical fouls] were ridiculous," Paul said. "The tech that I get right there was ridiculous. I don't care what nobody says, I don't care what she says; that's terrible. There's no way that can be a tech. We try to get the ball out fast every time down the court, and when we did that, she said, 'Uh-uh.' I said, 'Why, uh-uh?' And she gave me a tech.

"That's ridiculous. If that's the case, this might not be for her."

exact reason why women shouldn't be amongst MEN during a battle.

Unless someone can prove he said something else and cursed directly at her, she should be suspended or at least have the courage to take herself out for a couple of games.

This is a disaster fro the NBA
