David Fizdale: David Fizdale fined $30k for postgame comment

  • San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard moves the ball around Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol during the second half in Game 2 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series Monday

Grizzlies coach David Fizdale gave us an early contender for most entertaining post-game press conference after the Grizzlies' Game 2 loss to the Spurs, when he ripped into the officiating that saw the Spurs take 32 free throws compared to just 15 by Memphis.

"It's unfortunate that I've got a guy like [point guard] Mike Conley that in his whole career has got zero technical fouls and just can not seem to get the proper respect from the officials that he deserves", Fizdale said after Memphis fell to a 2-0 series deficit.

On Wednesday, Fizdale was hit with a $30,000 fine from the National Basketball Association for criticizing officials for the free-throw discrepancy between the Grizzlies and Spurs. He pointed out that his team shot only 15 free throws despite attempting plenty of shots in the paint, while San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard was awarded 19 free throws all by himself. "I'm not a numbers guy but that doesn't seem to add up". Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint.

"We don't get the respect that these guys deserve because Mike Conley doesn't go insane", Fizdale said. The epic rant concluded with Fizdale slamming his hand on the table while saying "take that for data", and then storming off.

San Antonio leads the best-of-seven series two games to zero. It's money he can afford to pay, especially if it means getting Conley and Zach Randolph to the line in Game 3.

Leonard attempted more free throws than Memphis had as a team, which infuriated Fizdale.

Angelina Jolie's 'secret romance' with British entrepreneur
The charismatic actress has to go public about her new relationship with a British-philanthropist businessman. Several tabloid reports are splashed with Angelina Jolie and this mysterious man's link-up rumours.

Memphis' Vince Carter got a technical foul going face to face to heatedly debate with Spurs' reserve guard Kyle Anderson.

The Spurs went 31-for-32 at the free-throw line. "But I'm not gonna let them treat us that way".

Criticizing the officials usually results in a fine, and with comments like that, Fizdale's wallet may get hit pretty hard by the league. Explain it to me. That's unacceptable. That was unprofessional.

San Antonio kept pouring it on in the second quarter and the Grizzlies had no answer, growing more frustrated with every empty possession.

NOTES: Spurs F/C Pau Gasol played 476 games for the Grizzlies from 2001-08, winning the 2001-02 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and becoming the franchise's first-ever All-Star (2006).
