Following the team’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, Grizzlies coach David Fizdale went on a pretty epic tirade on the quality of officiating in a game that saw Kawhi Leonard go to the line 19 times, while his entire team made it there only 15 times.  For his troubles, Fizdale was fined $30,000.

His players had his back, however, telling him almost instantly that he wouldn’t have to cover that fine:

Oh, and whether or not you’ve already watched the rant, here it is, so watch it again. It’s really marvelous. One for the ages.

That’s a coach who cares about his players right there.  The Grizzlies players owe him one, and they know it.
