But whats even more ridiculous is calling Torts' suspension during the 2009 playoffs a "non-issue." Up 3-1 in a series and your coach gets suspended for a potential clincher at home in the waining minutes of a game 5 loss? For attacking a fan with a waterbottle no less?!
I couldnt disagree more. Not only is it an issue, its a BIG issue when the coach's shtick is accountability. Its the absolute height of hypocrisy.
It also came on the heels of benching Avery for being undisciplined and putting himself before the team.
