Usual suspects

It’s no secret All-Stars Lauren Jackson and Diana Taurasi have potty mouths, especially in the heat of a game. Taurasi even tried to curse on her WNBA-regulated blog when the Connecticut-Tennessee rivalry was cancelled.
But Jackson feels the technicals she’s receiving are unjust. In fact, she even made a $1,000 bet with assistant coach Shelley Patterson that she wouldn’t get a tech for cursing this season.
Jackson is being T’d-up for other violations, however. Like yanking her arm from opponents when tangled after a play (twice) and tonight’s tech for having teammate Janell Burse’s back on a call, which captains are typically allowed to do. Instead Jackson said she was told to “shutup” before earning the technical.
“I have not sworn at one referee, just so we get this straight,” she told media after the game. “I just said, ‘Mate, she [Burse] can’t get through. How are you going to call a foul on that?’ It’s pretty funny. To me, it’s just stupid. It’s hilarious. It’s ridiculous. I think they’ve got certain people in their minds that they’re going to tech and make examples of and obviously Diana has already been one and I think I’m definitely the other from what I can see.”
The three techs will cost Jackson $450.
