Doc Rivers Rips Celtics; Threatens Shakeup
Afterward, following the Celtics’ bumbling 103-88 loss Sunday night to the downtrodden Detroit Pistons, (Celtics coach Doc) Rivers unleashed his fury on a team that he is increasingly beginning to dislike.
“I don’t think the guys are honest with each other. I just don’t think we have committed to being a good basketball team. I think this team wants everything easy.”
And then Rivers threatened to shake up his roster.
“I gotta either find the right combination, the right guys or we’re going to get some guys out of here,” he said. “It’s the bottom line, because this group right now, they’re not playing right and it’s in them to play right but right now they haven’t been because I’m not getting to them or they’re not getting to each other. Either we’ve got to do that or we’ve got to make changes. I’m saying if we don’t get it right we may [make changes].’’
