In response to BirdLewsBias' comment:
Doc did change stories like 3 times and Simmons just called him out. I agree with Simmons Doc needs to own it.
The owners tod doc they wanted to rebuild.
Doc didn't want to be a part of it.
The owners wante to get something for Doc to let him out of the contract.
They got a #1
Doc said the owners approached HIM about moving on and that's not the case. Doc didn't want to be part of a rebuild...Doc should've just said that and nobody would blame him. They would ask him why he signed a 5 yr deal though.
The story changed because the circumstances changed and the events were moving fast and furious. That's like saying Danny didn't change his opinion and approach in this process. At one point, everyone knows Danny changed from "I want him back" to "I want a first round pick". When Doc said "ok, its over and I'll be back", Danny goes and works a deal with Clips and tells Doc's agent "he's gone". If Simmons wants to blame someone for what's going on with the Celts, just look at the one constant in the Ray departure, Doc departure, KG and Paul departure, Williams departure, etc. Guess who says one thing and does another?
Doc doesn't want to tell the whole story because to tell the story, he'd have to get into the internal discussions with Danny regarding people like Rondo, blowing up the team, etc. Doc chose to try to just talk around the circumstances. I respect his trying not to air dirty laundry with Danny and Wyc. Why throw darts on your way out. Doc is taking the high road and I like his class for doing that.
Simmons needs to S*T*F*U and just move on.
