Stan Van Gundy has been fined $15,000 for public criticism of the officiating, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
Van Gundy made his comments to the media following the Pistons’ 100-87 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on March 17 at Moda Center.
"It's embarrassing. It's embarrassing for them and embarrassing for the league," Van Gundy said of Saturday's officiating. "I've been here for four years and many more years before that, and I've never come in after a game -- never, never come in after a game -- and talked like this. That was embarrassing. We got absolutely screwed tonight."
