This season has sparked serious questioning of NBA officials from fans, coaches, and most importantly, the players.
One player who always seems to be on the wrong side of the conversation with the refs is Golden State Warriors All-Star Draymond Green.
Green, who was ejected from the Warriors' most recent battle with the Thunder, is now going to have to pay a $50,000 fine for "offensive language" towards the refs.

Things have really gotten out of control.
Watch what happened the other night:
Green gets ejected after tossing the ball at the official after exchanging words.
However, with the reputation Draymond has given himself, the refs do not give him too much slack. And in a season where players have been outspoken about calls, the most outspoken player is being watched under a microscope.
Whichever way you look at this, something needs to be done about the refs this offseason, because a lot of the calls and ejections have been atrocious decisions.
