NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson announced that Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose was fined $25,000 for "public criticism of officiating."

Following the Bulls' 104-99 win over the Knicks Monday night, Rose, referring to a lack of calls, said, "I've got to be the only superstar in the league going through what I’m going through right now."

Rose was later asked if he thought his comments would result in a fine from the league.

"I could care less right now," he said.
