NBA fines Doc Rivers $15K for meltdown ejection that produced hilarious memes
The memes, they were a-plenty.
The NBA fined Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers $15,000 on Thursday for "verbal abuse towards a game official and not leaving the court in a timely manner," the league announced. Rivers went berserk at the officials in the closing moments of overtime in the Clippers' loss to the Nets Tuesday night, and was ejected.
While the entire ordeal was pretty unfortunate for Rivers, between the ejection, the loss, and the blood pressure, the internet did have a blast with his freak-out.
