The NBA fined Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson $25,000 on Friday for publicly criticizing officials. Robinson made the comments after the Nuggets' 97-95 win over the New York Knicks on Nov. 29. "They hate me, they hate me," he after the game. "I don't know why, but it is what it is. I already know I've got the target on my back, but I'll play through it; I don't care. I really don't. It doesn't bother me none. If I get a call, I get a call. If I don't, I don't. If I get a tech, hopefully it's not in the fourth quarter. Hopefully I don't get any more. But I know I will. It's nothing new for me." Robinson, in his ninth season, has averaged 2.3 free throw attempts in 23.2 minutes per game.
