Most-Fined NBA Coaches in the last 10 years (2003-2013)

The NBA’s anti-flopping rule was a new addition to the game this season.

In the playoffs, things changed up a little more when the NBA introduced harsher penalties for flopping. The first offense results in a $5,000 fine. There is no warning. After that, offenses result in $10,000, $15,000 and $30,000 penalties as they come.

The first fine of the playoffs did not come from flopping, however. In fact, the first fine of the playoffs was not even levied against a player, but a coach.

Doc Rivers, coach of the Boston Celtics, was fined $25,000 for criticizing the refs after a game against the Knicks.

Rivers has been fined more than any other active coach in the NBA. In total, he has received 8 fines for a total of $137,500 over the course of his coaching career.

It’s no surprise that Phil Jackson, former coach of the Bulls and Lakers, has been fined more (10 times for $380,000), but the legendary “Zenmaster”  is no longer active. Rivers also finds himself behind Larry Brown. The ornery coach of the 76ers and Detroit Piistons’ pocket has been lightened 7 times to the tune of $117,500.

Check the chart from the Crunchology blog. With the new flopping rule in mind, Crunchology created a large data visualization of NBA Fines over the past see other heavily-fined coaches.
