Grizzlies coach David Fizdale is going to have to reach for his checkbook after Monday’s epic rant, but it looks like the Griz might be cashing in.
Fizdale unloaded on the referees from Monday night’s game in an instant classic rant that he punctuated by exclaiming “Take that for data!” as he stormed off.

The standard fine for criticizing officiating is $25,000, or about 833 T-shirts at $30 apiece.
