“I don’t know what the (expletive) tonight was.”
That was how Boston’s Gerald Wallace tried to explain the Celtics getting obliterated by the Rockets Tuesday night — Houston opened on an 18-1 run, led by 35 and cruised in to a 109-85 win. After a game like that I’d go to using language not appropriate to use in front of a five-year-old also.
The league, however, is very image conscious and came down on Wallace with a $10,000 fine for “using profane language during his postgame media availability session.”
What you can really consider this is a warning to other players around the league to make sure they keep it clean, too.
Although, maybe there should be a “we just lost by 24 and it wasn’t that close” loophole for frustrated players. I can’t blame Wallace for his frustration.
