Players are automatically suspended after receiving seven technical fouls for unsportsmanlike conduct in the playoffs

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr asked the NBA to reconsider its procedure for suspending players for technical fouls accumulated in the playoffs, a suggestion he has previously made behind the scenes in the offseason.

Per ESPN, Players are automatically suspended after receiving seven technical fouls for unsportsmanlike conduct in the playoffs, although the league office has the right to rescind a technical after reviewing it, meaning it would not count toward that total.

“I will never understand the rule that everybody falls under the exact same category, in terms of whether you lose in four games in the first round or you play 25 games and you go to the Finals, that it’s the same technical fouls points that lead to a suspension. It seems strange.
