DOC RIVERS IS AN AWFUL COACH, JJ REDICK SAID SO: STEPHEN A’S TAKE!

By Jimmy Traub

Former Sixers guard JJ Redick, who played for Doc Rivers while with the Los Angeles Clippers, called out Rivers for his tendency to make excuses and such when things aren’t going well.

Rivers was on “The Stephen A. Smith Show” and fired back at Redick’s comments:

JJ’s had a problem with me for a while and that’s fine. Players do. When you coach, you can be called a player’s coach, or whatever you want to be called, but if you make decisions that the player doesn’t agree with, and in JJ’s case, we didn’t sign him back.

With the Clippers, I stopped playing him as much because he wasn’t very effective in the playoffs. That’s all known, but I’m fine with that. Usually, they come back to you, they do, because they know everything you tried to teach them or do for them was in good–JJ Redick’s best numbers of his career was under one coach and you’re looking at him.

Right here. I’m the one who grabbed him out of Milwaukee and decided to start him. From that point on, his career took off.

Overall, nothing but love for JJ. Obviously, there’s things he doesn’t like, and I have no issues with him.
