Celtics Blog Post New Entry

More reports suggest that Doc may step down

Posted by shawn cassidy on June 10, 2013 at 2:25 PM



The Celtics off season saga continues. Maybe Doc is the domino that needs to drop more so than Paul Pierce. What if Doc decides before the June 30th deadline on Paul Pierces option that he wants to step away? Would Doc's choice effect Danny's decision with Paul?

Doc needs to say something soon.


The Globe reports

When asked if he is still in the decision-making process, Rivers told the Globe “I’d rather not say.” Although he has not been available to the media, Rivers has been present for pre-draft workouts and has discussed the future of the season on several occasions with Ainge.



Here's one of ESPN's mouths speaking about Doc.

Doc needs to give an answer, who's sick of this? This guy is.

I don't know how the folks making excuses for Doc can explain away the fact that this team looked unprepared and unready from the start of the season. And there's no sign that there will be any difference made to that this summer. I just don't think Doc is that into coaching anymore. Can we get a coach who can design an actual offense, who can actually work with Rondo on this, Or can Doc refocus? Doc and Pierce both seem to be playing very passive aggressive games right now. I don't like it.

I agree, if he's already weighing the options. It sounds like he's giving half of himself. As other coaches fight for their jobs, Doc treats it like it's disposable.

That's how it seems to me. I mean, Doc really bonds with some of his players, and that's what makes him powerful as a coach, but he doesn't seem motivated in ways that other coaches are. I remember one key game a couple of years ago where the night before he went to see Austin play. I mean, that's reasonable, and we all have adult lives to live, but it just seems at times like Doc's not 100% there.

Yeah I see that. Doc is great with guys, and he motivates. But 100% he is not. Just like Shawn said. He hasn't even changed his offense to feature Rondo. It's the same old offense.

How can you not feature your best player? It almost seems lazy.
