Doc Rivers’ son Jeremiah blasts Bill Simmons; Simmons has hilarious reponse

Bill-SimmonsThe feud between Doc Rivers and Bill Simmons that began on Thursday is not going to quiet down any time soon, thanks in large part to people like us who find it incredibly entertaining. However, Doc’s son Jeremiah has also done his part to help keep the war of words going.

As you have likely seen, Rivers called Simmons an idiot during the NBA Draft telecast after the ESPN analyst accused him of quitting on the Boston Celtics. Rivers insists that Simmons does not know the entire story (which is probably true), but Simmons’ argument is that Rivers needs to just admit he didn’t want to be a part of a rebuilding project instead of playing coy. Jeremiah Rivers disagrees. First came the resume:

Then, Jeremiah accused Simmons of being a flip-flopper:

And finally, Jeremiah basically ripped Simmons for being nothing but a talking head who hides behind a desk:

Simmons, who has never been one to allow someone else to get the last word, responded with a pretty funny tweet of his own.

If you ask me, both Rivers and Simmons have a point. On one hand, you have to take into account that there could be unknown factors in play like Rivers not wanting to deal with Rajon Rondo anymore. On the other, it appears he wanted out of the last three years of his contract because the Celtics weren’t going to win. You can sugarcoat that any way you please, but that is quitting.

At the end of the day, Rivers helped Boston win its 17th championship and will go down as one of the best coaches in team history. Players aren’t the only ones who like championships. The Clippers give Rivers a better chance to capture another.
