Rudy Gobert has been fined $100,000 by the NBA's Executive VP and Head of Basketball Operations, Joe Dumars. This fine comes as a result of Gobert directing an inappropriate gesture towards a game official and publicly criticizing the officiating.

The announcement noted that Gobert's past conduct, which included previous instances of publicly criticizing officiating, was taken into account in determining the fine.

During a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 8, Gobert received his sixth foul and made a money gesture towards referee Scott Foster, resulting in the hefty fine.

Following the incident, Gobert openly expressed his frustration, suggesting that questionable calls throughout the game may have influenced the final outcome. He also hinted at external factors, such as sports betting, potentially affecting NBA referees' decisions during games.
