And Memphis coach David Fizdale certainly took notice.
The NBA at the very least should let Memphis coach David Fizdale pick the charity on where his fine will go to.

In his postgame tirade, Fizdale said, “Pop may have more pedigree and I know I’m just a rookie, but they not gonna rook us.”

He called the refereeing of the series “unprofessional” and ended his rant with a slamming of the podium and a “take that for data.”
