Pacers Suspend Greg Foster, Fine Goga Bitadze For Altercation 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu May 6, 2021 5:18 pm

The Indiana Pacers are suspending assistant coach Greg Foster for one game and fining Goga Bitadze an undisclosed amount for their exchange on court during Wednesday's game.


Foster and Bitadze are said to have a strong working relationship, but that the emotions got the better of both parties during the exchange.


Bitadze was a first round pick in 2019 by the Pacers.

Goga completely disrespected one of the coaches during the middle of a game, giving Foster the stiffer penalty here is a big fail by the Pacers.

Foster should have been smart about the way he handled it, wait until he’s in the locker room then let him have it but doing it on the court like he did was a bad look for everyone. All the other players are telling Foster to stop and walk away but he kept going at it. Foster did the right thing just in the wrong place and time, it actually made Goga look like the good guy.

Wow can't believe this happened, they should fire COTY Nate McMillan, this awesome Pacer roster should be better than a 4 seed. My bad, I still get 2020 & 2021 confused.

Where is the fine for Kevin Love for continuously throwing the team and teammates under the bus?
