The Chicago Bulls defeated the New York Knicks 104-99 on Monday night, but Derrick Rose wasn't happy about the treatment he received from the game's officials. And based on the way he phrased his criticism of the officials, it sounds like he thinks Monday night was no aberration:
"I've gotta be the only superstar in the league that's going through what I'm going through right now," [Rose] said. "But I can't say too much about it."
On Tuesday, the NBA announced that it had fined the point guard $25,000 for those remarks.
