Question of the day: Should The Fans Boo Doc?

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 9, 2013 at 5:15 AM



I don't hate Doc, he was the right coach for the right time. I think the debate and questions surrounding Doc's end will hurt his legacy a bit, maybe by the smallest fraction. Did he quit, and when did he quit? I thought there were a lot of signs that Doc quit on this team during last season. Maybe it's more of the fact that he was over this team, and where it was heading. I think will get some unwelcoming chants during his return in December. There will come a time when I look back on Doc. Right now, I feel like he chose Chris Paul over Rondo, and he chose the bright lights of LA over Boston. The Boston Globe's duo believes the fans should give Doc credit, and I ask all the time. Are these guys even fans, or do they just cover Boston sports?


What do you expect to happen?

The Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy and Bob Ryan joined Gary Tanguay and Greg Dickerson on "Uno Sports Tonight" for a game of "Buy or Sell."

First on the agenda: Should Doc Rivers be booed when he returns to Boston as coach of the Clippers on Dec. 11?

"I'm buying, he should not be booed," Shaughnessy said. "Don't be ridiculous. We were down this path with [Johnny] Damon, [Adam] Vinatieri. No, he did great service here, do not boo him."

Ryan agreed.

"I'm buying it," he said. "The matter of his departure bothered me, but that doesn't

Oh these guys are unspeakable. They bash Rondo endlessly, who so far as anyone knows has only been temperamental, when you come right down to it, and they continue to lick Doc's boots, which right now are planted firmly in the face of Boston fans.

I wouldn't boo him, but I wouldn't cheer him either. As you say, Shawn, it looks like he wanted Chris Paul, the bright lights and the easy ring. Let's face it. These guys saw what Ray Allen did, AND THEY DECIDED THEY WANTED IT.

Yes he's no longer our coach and he didn't want to coach us anymore. that doesn't take away from the fact he won a championship but if he's not with us he's against us plain and simple.

Also I agree doc chose chris paul over rondo but to say doc quit or whatever I think isn't correct. You guys seem to forget how close we were to actually coming back from being down 0-3 to new york. I just feel his time ran out and I do think he made some bad moves but i don't understand how he quit he tried to make adjustments in those last couple of games it just wasn't enough without rondo not to mention the fact we gave away that 1st game and got blown out in game 3. But it's obvious that doc wanted to coach chris paul and maybe even kg and paul pierce but doc tried to make it work with rondo 2 seasons ago he crafted the offense around rondo more and took ray allen out of the offense less which ended up in him leaving so doc atleast tried with rondo.

Well, I think he can certainly be said to have quit on this team now, for sure. But I also think he did not prepare the team well last season, and that he made little effort to reorient the team around Rondo. Some effort. Yes. But not really.

I think he quit after the season though I can't bring myself to say he quit midseason or mid playoff series.
