Doc Rivers Son Blasts ESPN’s Bill Simmons On Twitter

Doc Rivers Son Defends Him On Twitter

The sports world is buzzing today about the dismantling of the NBA’s Boston Celtics. The team’s stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded to the Brooklyn Nets, while their coach Doc Rivers is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers.

ESPN’s Bill Simmons took Rivers’ departure unusually hard during a mini meltdown on ESPN’s live coverage of the NBA draft.

“I would like to call him a idiot but I’m too classy for that, said Rivers, responding to Simmons’ comment that Rivers “quit” on the Celtics.

The last time I checked, this was still a free country where a coach has the freedom to accept a $21 million contract to take his talents to another team.

Why does Simmons care so much where Rivers goes? This is the same guy who couldn’t contain his obvious bias for the Pacers and the Spurs — or any team that played against the world champion Miami Heat during the 2013 NBA playoffs.

Rivers’ normally mild mannered son, Jeremiah, was more direct. Justin took to his Twitter account to politely — but sternly — give Simmons the business.

      I don’t see a thing wrong with the response. I think Bill Simmons shares some of that Dan Gilbert mentality. Doc is a class act, always liked him, even though I am not a Celtic fan. Him and Ray Allen always showed great sportsmanship.

    • Who Dat

      From what I gathered from all of this…J. Rivers is mad b/c Bill Simmons was riding with Doc when the Celts was winning…but then when they was losing…he tried to run him out of town. Where is his loyalty is the question…

      Umm J…you DO know that the Boston Celtics are located in Boston right son? And you do know thatcho DADDY IS BLACK RIGHT?

      He spoke the truth. Bill Simmons knows his basketball. His “Big Book of Basketball” should be required reading for those that love the sport.

      But he shouldn’t be on tv and his questioning of different organizations is much better in print than on tv. I’m certain he won’t be on the air next year. For tv anyway. He will probably still have his radio show.

      No, I was talking about Greg Oden. That’s just how bad Collins is that The Heat would rather have a nigga with knees made of tissue then to have his garbage ass.

    • iyonah

      @sandra I think he is going to end up on the Nets or as a Knick in 2015. Can’t see him going to any West teams, and all signs point to NY.

      Time to dismantle as a CELTICS Fan. Team was getting old no able to handle the YOUNG GUNS as well as they should. Rebuild now than later. Love to Doc, KG, PP and RA. Question now remains where is Rondo going or will he stick around for the REBUILD. We’re good though 18 Banners. We’ll get the 19 and then some in time, some won’t even see their team get that many in their lifetime. IMO: Watch the BROOKLYN NET FANS come out of nowhere from everywhere. LOL
