Let’s keep this short and sweet. Since Ron Artest has already taken Doc Rivers to task on Twitter, there really is no need to continue to beat this dead horse. However, it bears discussing just how ignorant Doc is for his assessment of the defeat the Lake Show handed to his C’s in the Finals.
Doc thinks that the Lakers wouldn’t have won if Kendrick Perkins was healthy. I’m pretty sure Phil Jackson could have said the same thing about the Celtics back in ’08 when Andrew Bynum was injured. Notice you don’t hear PJ making excuses since Bynum wasn’t at full strength again this year either.
Way to motivate, Doc. You sure had his team ready to go in game 6. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if the C’s close out in 6 we’re not even tripping on who is healthy and who is not come game 7, right?
Doc seems to believe that an injured role player, not his team blowing yet another fourth quarter lead, was the reason for their demise on basketball’s biggest stage.
Why stop there though? Why not dig deeper, Doc? I’m sure there’s some way you could have blamed Len Bias for your team hoeing game 7.
News flash, Doc, Perkins was playing on borrowed time any way. The big man with the perpetual scowl was one tantrum away from being suspended for a game. You had to expect losing Perkins at some point in the Finals, too bad for the Celtics it was due to injury.
Kiss the ring, Glenn…err…Doc.
If it would make Celtic fans feel better, maybe you should go ahead and hang a banner with an asterisk.
