Former Celtics and new Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was asked for a response to ESPN personality and "Boston Sports Guy" Bill Simmons's claim that Rivers quit on the Celtics. Rivers shot back by saying, "I would like to call him an idiot, but I'm too classy for that."
Rivers went on to say that Simmons, "Really needs to know the whole truth, which he doesn't." Simmons got an immediate chance to respond saying that "the truth keeps changing", referencing the conflicting accounts by Celtics GM Danny Ainge and Rivers of how the trade went down.
Jeremiah Rivers, Doc's son and a guard in the D-League, went after Simmons on Twitter last night.
Simmons Tweeted a joke about Jeremiah Rivers's posts this morning
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.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) June 28, 2013
