Doc Rivers rips Bill Simmons on live TV over quitting on the Celtics claim

Doc Rivers

During ESPN’s live telecast of the NBA draft on Thursday night, Shelley Smith caught up with new Clippers head coach Doc Rivers and asked him for his thoughts on ESPN’s Bill Simmons’ comments that Doc ‘quit on the Celtics.’

“I would like to call him an idiot,” Rivers said, “but I’m too classy for that.”

And with that quote, the broadcast went back to the panel assembled to cover the draft, including ‘idiot’ Bill Simmons, who stuck to his comments.

Watch the awkwardness…
