This team needed a wake up call. This team I do feel will respond. This team will play better for some time now. I also do believe some trade needs to happen though. We need a rebounder in the starting lineup badly. But all in all I do beleive Doc needed to say what he said (Can only imagine what he said in the locker room) This team responds wins big friday and get some other big wins here soon. LETS GO CELTICS!

EDIT:  Doc's words:

Quote
The Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets played a physical game Wednesday which resulted in four players being ejected for fighting during the first half. While that may be a sign of toughness to some, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers doesn't agree.

Instead, Rivers said the Celtics were "a soft team right now" and that fighting was not a sign of toughness.

"We're a soft team right now," Rivers said, according to NESN.com. "We have no toughness, and that stuff's not toughness. All that stuff, that's not toughness."

Rivers said while a few players, including Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo, understand the way to play while wearing a Boston jersey, the others just expect to be something. Rivers said the players have to earn it and bring effort every night because teams give the Celtics their best.

Hopefully it works.  Doc has certainly shown a good history of knowing how to push the right buttons with this team.

Offensive rebounding has improved. CB take a bow. Defensive rebounding is another story though :-X

I am not always raving about his lineups, but he doesn't call bad plays. You cant really say Doc is a bad coach.. He said what needed to be said. Now the players have to go out and prove that they are celtics.

other than the all known alley from rondo to KG
i cant remember another play not being called PP ISO
in his book.
He say great things , hes a good motivator, hes somehow an average coach, but like my little green friend ( Yoda no lucky) used to say
A great coach he is not
hes a flawed coach with some good things.

It always amazes me how Doc is consistently referred to as one of the game's best coaches by other NBA coaches, players, and analysts but Celticsbloggers remain completely unimpressed. I mean really, what do the professionals know?

Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

I am on the other side of the argument just right now

I mean everybody is entitled to their own oppinion
why a single mortal that has seen tons of games knows less than an analysts

why chuck is a bad analyst or a good one

why earth is round.

Oh well, i think hes not a good Xs Os coach and his rotations stinks and i will stick to it until proven otherwise

I don't know if him saying it in the media will help, but he's not lying. This team is a soft as Charmin right now and shows not one ounce of aggression or mean streak. No team is afraid of them right now and it shows.
Times like this are why I miss Tony and Perk a bit because they weren't soft and if they were it wasn't shown.

I'm sorry, but I think the whole "being afraid" of other teams is a bit of a silly concept.  I don't think anybody is really afraid of anybody in the NBA.  Certainly, though, some teams are better than others.  I don't really think fear is a major factor, though.
