Connecticut Sun coach fined, suspended for'offensive Remark' about Las Vegas Experts star Liz Cambage

Cambage submitted a lengthy narrative on Instagram following the match, saying Miller attempted to have a referee to call a foul in the Sun's favour by citing her burden. In accordance with Cambage, Miller commented to this referee something along the lines of:"C'mon, she is 300 lbs."

In her Instagram article, Cambage fixed himsaying she's 6-foot-8 and 235 lbs -- since she simply weighed herself so that she could be"directly" and also have"all the facts" -- so she's"very proud of becoming a significant b"

"I won't ever allow a guy emphasise me, ever, ever, ever, particularly a tiny white one," Cambage explained, adding later,"Do not ever attempt to disrespect me another girl from the league."

Miller issued an announcement Monday afternoon, apologizing to Cambage along with the Aces company.

"I left an improper and offensive remark with regard to Liz Cambage's height and weightreduction. I regret what I said from the heat of the moment and need to apologize to Liz and the whole Experts organization. I know that the gravity of my phrases and have heard out of this," Miller stated.

Jennifer Rizzotti, in her next month as president of the Sun, issued an announcement for the group Monday night.

"In no way do we condone any behaviour or speech that's disparaging towards another individual," she explained.

In her article, Cambage said Miller had been"blessed" the episode occured during a match when she had been"doing my job"

The WNBA All-Star stated she talks crap during matches, but she believes it different since it's involving gamers. "However, to get a trainer for another group, to be yelling, for example, protected misuse. Since we can not do back nothing. It is just crazy for me," Cambage explained.
