    DIDNT GET Y EITHER GUY WAS SO ENTHUSED FOR A reunion. i recall when babe was here at the end there being a lot of tension with baby seeing himself as much bigger (pun intended) than he actually was or as high as others saw him. thought he was a star who deserved to b playing a lot more with a lot more freedom.. in a game where blakey's back gives up and chips are down in the biggie area with dwight shining bright, doc makes a power move as baby is pouting and thankful kg aint there to make him cry again.. doc channels his inner belichick and tells security to escort the baby back to the locker room.. no formula or pacifier for da jabbie in the 2nd.. doc keeps him there after halftime! talk about a power move!

    doc is in full control of that team, not cp3, not anyone.. he may have the most control of a team of anyone not named pops. no way no how clippies dont make the finals, barring injury.. doc's the man.. period! shows u what a coach and leader can do.. think anyone's gonna talk smack back to doc after putting babe in his place like that. the guy has a ring and history yet doc has no beef kicking him like a common jabbie!




    Doc is an average coach who is only successful due to the enormously talented teams he is given. Doc did what any adequate coach should do....shut down whining azzed self centered blow hards. Doc took advantage of his history with Baby and did what he knew he had to. Doc is not now, nor has he ever been a great coach. Great coaches develop talent and chemistry and over achieve with a group who should not be as good as they are or are consistant year over year and don't lose interest. Doc has done none of these, but has instead under achieved as the Celtics coach......he will do as much with the Clips too..........Good try though.......

    " no way no how clippies dont make the finals, barring injury."

    Blake left the game hurt so there goes that preduction. 

    Spurs or OKC in the finals, not the Clips. 

    "Doc is an average coach who is only successful due to the enormously talented teams he is given."

    Keep telling yourself that. A couple of those guys, including Blake, are having career years under Doc. Doc is a lot like Phil Jackson, he needs a talented team and then he takes that talent to another level, but doesn't mean he isn't a great coach.

    Re: CLASSIC: DOC literally puts BABY in a CORNER!

    Doc and his usual blind stare coaching techniques/// Too bad he couldnt drag KG there with him to teach him how to coach... I bet DOc got BBD there just to get even

    and dont even mention DOc in the same breath as Phil... what a joke. Although Phil has walked into some nice situations, hes put up 11 banners coaching, not just 1 and slid downhill from there..

    Doc has the most loaded team in the NBA but hes a poor coach that has an unually, extremely high opinion of himself..  hes a failure

    EVERY year for deanderthal and flake are "career years" and then they shat themselves when it comes time for the playoffs.  it will be NO DIFFERENT under doc.  last year deanderthal's rebounds per minute went down 50% in the playoffs and 22% from the free throw line.  look for more of the same

     

    DOC is the one who urged the signing of Davis- was he just missing his red headed step child to beat on??  Sure Davis is an idiot but why wouldn't you put him in the game when Flake gets hurt?  just to play mind games?  Davis was probably excited to show what he could do on a team that is doing pretty well right now.

     

    At the end fo the day Doc is a prideful idiot who is a big bag of nothing as a coach- a nice match for Davis who is an idiot but at least has some skills at what he does.  Watch for them to continue to not get along and at some point, when Blakey-Flake is busy collapsing under the rigors of playing a fat slob like zach randolph, they are going to need to go to something different- like Davis.  Mark my words.  Where Davis will be at that point due to the rigors of Dock's psychological labrynth of idiot vs. idiot is anyone's guess

    You dont make a dog mean by being nice to him. Doc is going to have Davis sooooooo pissed off when he finally plays him, he's going to rip it up!

    there is that approach and it is valid.  but her in BOS doc just ran davis into the ground and then made the franchise trade for empty headed low skilled blandone brass who is much much much worse than davis

    I think this is Docs 15th year in coaching... 1 nba title, 2 finals appearances

    Doc has proven his ability to alienate non stars on his teams. His substitution guesses are hilarious and follow no pattern or strategy. He allowed the super ego'd, talent challenged head case PG to take control of his team and run it into the ground, taking chucnks of seasons off, refusing to play defense which in turn helped accelerate wearing KG  down.

    Other than DA pulling together a bunch of self coached HOFers, ala Pat RIley in Miami, assisted greatly by Thibs, the only brains behind the teams system... Docs coaching record is atrocious

    With the talent his Celtic teams had since the Big 3 deal, we should have had 2-3 titles.. Docs an albatross to any team stupid enough to fall for the hype...and thats just what it is.

    man, lots of love for the Big Jaby+ total hate for the best overall coach going in the nba in Doc.. y'all sound like those who cant give Belichick his due. doc is on that mt. rushmore level of current coaches. pops, spo and doc in any combo you want. yep did ANY of those guys really thrive from the bottom? gimme a break. pops waited til duncan came there to come down from the heavens of the front office. s with spo, ha! here comes bron, ok i can coach.. doc had to keep his team in command as he took a vicious whipping to his record in '06. the man is a leader of men and orgs, a leader on the court.. period! give him his due!

    BASS > DAVIS.. period! plays better d has a better shot, much better in the locker room and overall classier guy!  sorry acie..



    wow and for years I thought commie didn't bring anything to the table!!! Now I come to find out that she actually knows Brandon Bass because she says that "overall he is a classier guy" Just curious how you know he is "classier"? You must have hung out with him. Any good stories about him? Th biggest mistake a fan makes is calling an athlete classy when we don't even know them.

    +1 Better, 'though I cannot speak to his level of class.  If that means keeping his mouth shut and playing then I guess maybe he might be at a higher level.  Davis and Bass are decent people, (I worked at LSU when both there) so comparing them based on that criterion might not prove worthwhile.  They each put in a lot of time with kids in Baton Rouge, having an affinity and identifying with them, and they were accommodating to the student fans, so I wouldn't besmurch or even diminish the character of each.  The guy who didn't do much except for himself was Tyrus Thomas, and that's played out in the NBA. Davis had an unfortunate nickname that altered his persona. Even he believed it until a couple of years ago. Davis' biggest weakness has always been his lack of lift.  Being that big but without any jumping ability has reduced his effectiveness at every level.

    He won coach of the year before he came here. How does that make his record "atrocious"?

    Your problem is that you have irrational hatred towards people you don't know. Then you lash out and say things that make no sense because of that hatred. then when people point that out, like I am doing now, you attack them as well.

    It would be sad, it it were not so funny.

    Doc is not a great coach, Rondo is not a great Pg.

    you contstantly freaking out and leaving a duece in your pants about both of them is hilarious.

    I think he is referring to the fact that Bass is thought of in the NBA as a guy with a good attitude by his coaches and peers, while Davis is thought of as a lazy unlikeable turd.

    Do a little research on either player and you will find all sorts of good stories.

    Wow, the haters are back.

    There is only black and white for some people.

    Ok, again the same old story:

    1. When Doc was suposed to win, he won (By the way: Thibs didn't, Spoe didn't in 2011 and also Pops didn't last year).

    2. After 2008 we were never the stongest team in the league (after KG went down), so we never underachieved.

    3. The Clippers have been better this year than expected, especially after this many injuries. And especially Griffin and DeAndre Jordan improved (at least this is mentioned in many, many arcticles)

    By the way, the same people who call Rondo the worst PG in the league, also called Ray a one dimensional player (no defense and no ball handling skills), and KG a 7 foot shooting guard without an inside game, right? Doesn't this contradict the story of Doc, the coach with the team full of hall-of-fame talents who did win only one title?

    people act as if doc's horric tenure in orlando never occurred.  in ORL he lost ALL THE STARS in addition to everyone else.  dysfunction, idiocy.  the only reason doc succeeded in BOS was thibodeau's defensive schemes and the accidental fortunate right mix of players.  once thibs left the team slid and once dummy ainge dumped clifford ray in a swamp over the foot surgery he needed (classless), the team's big men suffered for that.  and at our best we were not an astonishing rebounding team to begin with.

    the problem with doc is that he BELIEVES he is some genius who floats above the traditional norms of basketball which DO INCLUDE finding a rotation and sticking to it.  his ADD "doing it by feel" benefitted nobody but doc

    with bass, strictly referring to overall CLASS in regards to bball.. period! dont know either guy off the field. i'm sure both jaby and him are class acts or good guys.. i'm judging by how they approach refs and the PROFESSIONALISM they bring night after night. bass brings it every single game, whether starting or not, whether featured or not.. does whatever he's asked to do without beefing. even his contract negotiations were handled like a pro. no media threats or politicking. kept it quiet, said the right things and went thru the right protocol. have never seen him crying on the bench, being kicked off it, getting irresponsible Ts or making it all about HIM..

     

    bass = TEAM (whether he gets his touches or minutes)! he is valuable on any team in any kind of situation. good bass is always wanted, no buyouts necessary to get rid of his bad karma+no locker room maturity issues. bass seems to grasp his limits and his place in the league, jaby clearly still doesnt. like a baby, the Jaby is often all about HIMself. has to b disciplined a lot to get back to the team-first concept. Jaby is only good in very limited circumstances and with a select few coaches or systems. could easily see Bass in management or coaching post-career.. the Jaby, not so much.. may call LSU games at the most!



    vapid ramblings of a moron.  i'm PRETTY SURE that glen davis is a buunggg hole off the court.  i do not know brandone bass off the court.  i don't care either.  if you can show up and play ball, that's what you're being paid for.


    so BASS = TEAM all the time, huh?   he's a classy joint?  what about when he "turns his head" (his one move!) on defense and his man gets to the rim lickety split.  horribe defense.  that's why NOBODY OFFERED A SINGLE THING for him..........  then on offense if i had a dime for every time he's seizure-bobbled the ball away or had his head turned the wrong way AGAIN and not received a pass for a gimme-freebie open shot/dunk........


    well, class and "team" don't matter much when you stink horribly now does it.  the only thing that keeps bass from becoming the next paul milsap is that HE STINKS

    yes he won coach of A year and that team was built to be a contender.  then he promptly lost all the starters soon after that and the team was a HUGE UNDERACHIEVING DISAPPOINTMENT.  to the point that rivers was out of the league as a coach for a few years.


    so he won coach of the year (empty accolade if a RING doesn't follow) and then LOST the entire team- they did not listen to him one bit.  just like he lost this team the last two years of it. 

    the reason why doc COULD "lose" a team like Orlando is that he is about a two trick pony (maybe embellishing by one trick) as a coach- with "rah rah" being his main song of choice.  that can only bring a team so far.  you need substance.  the second trick of dock's limited trick bag is good out of bounds plays.  that's IT. 

    i was never more embarrassed for the celtics franchise than when during the heyday of the new big 3 he was hot mic'd for time outs.  there was nothing of substance said- just baloney and tripe.  thibs and clifford ray carried the load.

    yes, the west is tough.  and flake griffin and jordan have been pansies in the post season every year. 

    in all fairness to doc rivers, i guess he would rightfully deserve the credit if those two wallflowers actually showed up and played hard this post season.  i don't see it happening though
