The NBA has fined Brooklyn Nets majority owner Joseph Tsai for his tweet supporting general manager Sean Marks and criticizing the officiating in his team's Game 4 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

"Joe Tsai has been fined $35,000 for making public statements detrimental to the NBA," the league said in a statement Monday, adding that Tsai's tweet, below, "criticized the integrity of officiating."

Tsai posted the message Sunday after the league suspended Marks one game and fined him $25,000 for entering the officials' locker room after Game 4 on Saturday.

The co-founder of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, Tsai has an estimated net worth of $9 billion.
