According to Gorman, Keith Bogans had been dissatisfied regarding his lack of playing time. This apparently led to an incident on the team bus. Gorman didn't give many details regarding the incident since he was riding on the media bus at the time and didn't witness the incident himself, but claimed that the Celtics took quick action afterwards.
When asked whether he thought the incident was something fairly serious or if it might have been just a tipping point leading up to Bogans being excused, Gorman stated that "I think it was more a tipping point. I think somebody probably lost their cool, and you have to send out a message very quickly as to how you are going to deal with that, and again you have to reinforce the message as to who is in charge here."
