The NBA fined Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson $25,000 for public criticism of the officiating, the league announced Friday.

After picking up a technical foul in the Nuggets' 97-95 victory over the Knicks last week, Robinson said that officials target him.

“They hate me, they hate me,” Robinson said. “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 is averaging 10.2 points and 2.6 assists a game for the Nuggets this season.
