Dallas Mavericks guard Spencer Dinwiddie claimed NBA referee Tony Brothers called him a "b**ch ass mother**cker" during the Dallas Mavericks' win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday.

Brothers called the technical foul on Dinwiddie with 47.8 seconds remaining in the second quarter. After the match, Dinwiddie said he might have used a curse word while protesting but not in a derogatory manner, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

"I apologize to Tony Brothers for what seemed to keep him irate, which was a clap," Dinwiddie said in the post-game presser. "He thought it was disrespectful. If you watch the games, and I know that's what refs are supposed to do, you see I clap to get the attention of my teammates, things of that nature, but it was nothing personal, so as a man, I would like to say I'm sorry first and foremost.

"And secondarily I would like to say, not only would I like my [fine] money back, but I would like to not be called a b**ch ass motherf**cker to my teammates."

"That's tough. I have to talk to Spencer," coach Jason Kidd added about the topic. "When you look at Tony and what he's done in this league, he's well-liked and also one of the best that we have. We're going to see what happened here and talk to Spencer and find out exactly what happened. That's a sensitive topic. We'll see what happens."

The NBA office did not grant a pool report request to Brothers, the crew chief, because pool reports are intended to focus on rules clarifications.
