Celtics [1] center Shaquille O’Neal [2] has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for criticizing the referee Bob Delaney after his team’s 86-78 loss to the Magic in Orlando on Christmas Day.

Following the Celts’ loss, O’Neal was quoted as saying, “‘€œWe have two premier big men out there.  He is pushing, I’€™m pushing. Let us play. I guess they [fans] come out to see No. 26 [Delaney] play. He was a great player out there today. They paid all that money to see No. 26 come play. My thing is, if you’€™re going to call it, call it the same way every time. Don’€™t pick and choose who you are going to call it against.’€
