John Wall of the Washington Wizards has been fined $15k by the NBA over his inappropriate comments towards game officials.

The Wizards hosted the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday Night and Wall was matched up against fellow point guard Kemba Walker.

The Bobcats came away victorious in Washington by a scoreline of 98-85 and Wall had plenty to say about the officiating standard in the Verizon Center. 

Wall was particularly upset with a foul called during a three-point field goal attempt by Kemba Walker in the fourth quarter of the contest.

Wall explained: "I ain't touch him. All he did is scream, Ref gave him a call all night because he was screaming. ... I think they made some unfortunate calls plenty of times."

He continued by saying: "Plenty of times I drove to the basket. I think I should have been to the line plenty more."

These words after the game were enough to land the Wizards point guard in trouble with the league and subsequently cost him $15k out of his own pocket.

The Wizards face the Magic tomorrow night in Orlando as they continue to strive for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
