Mike Conley says Grizzlies will pay Fizdale's $30K fine for 'take that for data' rant
The players seem to be appreciative of their coach sticking up for them after Game 2
The story of Game 2 between the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs on Monday night looked to be about the Grizzlies' valiant comeback effort that fell just short, and the , who set a new postseason career-high.
All of that, however, was quickly overshadowed during the postgame press conference, as Grizzlies coach, in which he criticized the referees for their performance in Game 2, and single-handedly created two new memes, with his "they're not gonna rook us!" and "take that for data!" quotes.
Fizdale's performance, for any who might not have seen it, is well worth watching.
Understandably,from the league. But thanks to his players, he won't have to take out his checkbook.
Mike Conley, who Fizdale singled out for not getting enough respect, thanked Fizdale for his words, and said that the players will be taking care of the fine.
This is a yet another cool gesture from Conley,, and is a good sign that Fizdale has the respect of his players.
