At the NBA Draft on Thursday night, Rivers was asked about Simmons’ assertion that the coach quit on the Celtics. As you might expect, Doc disagrees.
“I would like to call him an idiot, but I’m too classy for that,” he said. “That’s just his opinion. That didn’t happen. He really needs to know the whole truth, which he doesn’t.”
Again, we have the whole Talladega Nights “with all due respect” thing, but that’s beside the point. Simmons defended his stance.
