(NESN)   Doc Rivers, after mixing it up with Bill Simmons during last night's NBA Draft telecast, went after Simmons again today: " I thought [he] kind of ruined the broadcast last night... he had an agenda and I was just getting tired of it"   (nesn.com) divider line 110

Memo to Doc Rivers:  Simmo's a C's fan longer than you've been playing AND coaching in the pros.  IIRC he knows people in the organization, so he's got a farking good clue what the fark he's saying you poser.

That's always my favorite... when ex-athletes dismiss anyone who disagrees with them as "they're just a fan".

I mean, he's been going to games since he could sit on his dad's knee at the Boston Garden.  So I'll give Bill the benefit of the doubt when it comes to something regarding the Celtics.

They aren't talking about Celtics history or debating whether Larry Bird is the greatest player to ever lace them up. Whether or not Bill has encyclopedic knowledge of Boston sports isn't relevant. He's been blasting Doc Rivers practically since they day he walked in as head coach. He loved Doc when they won a championship, but now that Boston is rebuilding and Doc is gone, he goes under the bus just like every other person who has ever played or coached in Boston and didn't retire there.

You'd be right, if stories didn't exist that Doc and his camp were negotiating under the Celtics' nose to get out of Boston.  Would've made more sense for Doc just to be straight up with Boston and say "I'd like get out of the contract" or simply resign.

It's amazing that ESPN's giving a "timeout" to Simmons for actually doing his job while keeping the annoying wind chime named Skip Bayless on air.

Even if those stories are true, so? Coaches, players, and teams do that constantly. The fact that Simmons is out there blustering about Doc's loyalty to an organization that had been on the verge of firing the dude so many times in his tenure I lost count and who just got done trading away Paul Pierce, a Celtic his entire 15-year career, is laughable. It's exactly as Doc says, Bill has an agenda and wanted to push it on TV. As with most Celtics fans, that agenda is whining. They don't call him the Sports Cry for nothing.

Simmons is a fine writer, has a good sense of humor and has sports knowledge, but when hired to do a broadcast about the NBA draft, he really shouldn't be the  guy who lets his homer-ism and complete Boston bias get in the way of the broadcast.

He was as annoying as Stern was milking the boos from the audience.  Just get up there and do your job.  For Simmons, share your analysis of picks, inject some humor, provide a viewpoint.  Don't make the show about you.

In that case, ESPN didn't do their job when they were thinking about letting Simmons be part of the interview considering his allegiance to Boston.

Yet you'd the first to complain when a favorite player on a team you follow does the same.

LOL, so do 90% the goddamn pundits on TV (Exhibit A: Skip Bayless).  What Rivers was pissed at was he got called out for this BS reasons to leave Boston.  I'm surprised when people criticize the media when they're actually doing their job and not being a lapdog for the person they want to talk to.

Bayless's only agenda is to be a contrarian and generate controversy. Does he even like any teams particularly?

Simmons's problem is his homer-ism.  Not a problem with his column, but a problem in the NBA Draft broadcast.  I don't know if ESPN is to blame, as they probably expected him to be professional and unbiased for the broadcast.  Just as a news anchor is supposed to report the news and leave the opinion pieces to the pundits, Simmons was probably expected to not push his own agenda, his love of all things Beantown.

Of course, Shelley Smith or whoever interviewed Doc, did bring it up, and I give Simmons props for not backing down from his opinion, but that kind of opinion is better suited for segments on SportsCenter, PTI, Around the Horn, First Take or other shows designed for opinion, rather than draft coverage, which is supposed to be analysis and news.

Mel Kiper is a homer for the players whose agents pay him to hype up in order to increase their draft positions.

Say what you want about Simmons and his rampart homerism, but he knows basketball.

Rivers saying  "Simmons is just a fan" isn't really that big of an insult to Simmons.  He's TRYING to, but...that's stupid.  All the reporters/journalists are fans of certain sports, does that mean their opinion doesn't matter?

When coaches/players go after the media, they can't win.  They can't.  They look petty and childish.

Simmons can't say anything but Around The Horn can have a segment on the interaction. Shameless.

Gunny Highway: I thought Simmons did a good job.


Honestly, he was hilarious (as we were talking about in the thread) with the reactions and the Stern stuff along with that made the night. It was far more entertaining than the normal draft especially after the first 15 picks.

Simmons is on the twitter with it (so no timeout)

When I get home I'm signing up my 5 and a half year old son for Twitter so he can defend me against Doc Rivers' kids.

Good summary on how Doc contradicted himself all week: http://bit.ly/16EvmhC (Does not include his PTI waffling.) He needs to pick a story.

I loved that SImmons didn't back down and basically called Rivers a liar on live TV. Simmons was right as well, Rivers should have just owned up to what he wanted instead of trying to fib and be the "good guy".

InmanRoshi: Doc is just astonished he doesn't get the free pass and complete ball washing he's accustomed to by the media.


This exactly. WTF did Simmons even say that was so damn offensive? It doesn't even matter who made the first call, we all know the score here. Doc didn't want to coach a 30 win team, the Celtics didn't want to pay him $7 mil to coach a 30 win team, nor did they want to keep the band together for another year just to get hammered in the second round again.

Did Simmons really get a suspension from ESPN of some kind? Jesus...they won't do anything to Cowherd or that First Take Troll for blatant race baiting, but Simmons asks valid questions, doesn't back down, and he'shiatler. ESPN talks about how they want to embrace debate, but give them an actual, legit one, and it's straight to the fainting couches.

Simmons got no suspension. He even tweeted about the controversy a bit earlier today. Besides, SImmons is ESPN's golden boy. They probably loved that segment.

MBK: Say what you want about Simmons and his rampart homerism, but he knows basketball.


That was not clear from last night.  He made a lot of DUMB claims, and I stopped watching 5 picks in.  My favorite was when he made the claim that Noel was a good fit for the Jordancats right before the pick was made.  Noel's current skill set is really repetitive with their current undersized, primarily defensive center, Bismack Biyombo.  With MKG not having a jump shot and making most of his plays in the paint, having a front court of Noel and Bismack would have been awful.

Also, FTA:

I would like to call him an idiot, but I'm just too classy for that

That's about the least classy while staying pretentious, Rivers.  No wonder your son, Austin, is so delusional that he once told a ref in AAU that he couldn't call a play a travel because it was his signature move (also known as the LeBron defense).

His analysis wasn't spot on - Harbaugh ended up being a good choice for a couple seasons and they eventually got Manning - but Alberts didn't exactly pan out. It seems that the Colts could have done better. Maybe the passion was laced with Baltimore butthurt, but not the insight.

I think Bill's analysis of the recent Doc Rivers news was entirely appropriate.

It's not every day that NBA coaches ask to be let out of a contract to make a lateral move.

They've given him timeouts before for really stupid reasons, and they do an absolutely terrible job of hosting his Grantland site (it literally goes down multiple times a week).

Simmons is close to, if not already, at the level of cachet to tell them to go f*ck themselves and leave for another network or go alone....and I say that as someone who really only cares for some of his writing and podcasts.

as for his writing/podcasts.....generally like him but have fallen off reading him.  he's a bit too cute lately.  he was at his best when it (at least it appeared) it was off the cuff.  he seems to be trying to be too cute lately, which comes off as forced.

his podcast during NFL is must-listen.  I really like the "guess the lines" game (in the NFL threads, i don't play "guess the lines", i make my picks based on the lines, which i really have fun with) but the Jack-O stuff, is just boring.  the Red Sox / Yanks stuff, who cares, and the reality TV stuff i don't bother with since i don't watch those shows.

He's more of a capologist geek (that's a word, right?), but a pretty darn good one. Ask him to spend ten minutes to play GM of the Bobcats and make some fake moves and he'll come up with something realistic and advantageous.

I don't think he watched THAT much college basketball, so as a talent evaluator of draft picks or something he might be a bit weak there.

Fair enough.  You make a real good point about the Cats.  Zeller seems like a risky pick but that is Jordan for you.

yeah, i thought that too.  Simmo's been a card carrying Clips fan for what, 3-4 years now?  should be fun!

(LA being LA, i can see this being resolved with a public rapprochemnet and forgiveness sometime before the season starts.....)
