Report: Grizzlies players to reimburse David Fizdale for fine

David Fizdale

The Memphis Grizzlies have coach David Fizdale’s back for having theirs.

The NBA made the unsurprising announcement on Wednesday that Fizdale had been fined $30,000 for his rant criticizing the officiating after a loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series earlier this week.

Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports that the Grizzlies players will collectively reimburse Fizdale for his fine and notes that Mike Conley sent Fizdale a “thank you” text following the rant (which you can see video of here).

Fizdale also received an offer from a local Memphis business to pay off his fine, so it looks like his rant succeeded in rallying the team and their fanbase together as they attempt to climb out of an 0-2 hole.
