Just out of curiosity who would you guys replace him with?

The problem with replacing Doc is that the main reason for it would be to shake up the team culture, something Pierce and Rondo would probably fight like mad and thereby prevent it from being successful.

Listening to Tommy in the postgame brought up two great points.


1)We should have tried playing a bigger player on Irving maybe Lee.

2) The coaching staff hasnt developed a goto scorer to help relieve the load of Pierce and Kg.

Tommy is spot on with this. Doc is a nonfactor for this team at the moment. If Irving is torching Rondo then switch it up.

Doc is not getting the job done. Time for Doc to go.

doc is a terrible offensive coach. he does not make them attack enough and we have no post up game. pathetic. I'll bet you a bazillion dollars behind the scenes tommy LOATHES doc rivers for his terrible coaching style on offense.

He only coaches teams that can win. And I can't see him taking orders from Danny.

I don't know if Doc needs to go, but to go off on your team like he did and then MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGES THE NEXT GAME is inexcusable.  No changes to the starting line up.  No real changes to the rotation.  Nothing.  There's just no defense for that.

And what was the deal with Courtney Lee only getting 14 minutes last night?  Is that because he dared to actually show some aggression offensively?

Because the only cure for an underperforming team is making changes, right?

I was just about to say the same thing. I feel that Tommy does not see eye to eye with what Rivers is doing especially on the offensive end. I love Doc. He is a great role model/mentor and I think he really gains guys respect and can really control the locker room. However, his offensive coaching is pretty terrible.

Doc's never been a good coach.  His main skill seems to be placating veterans on the roster. 

I don't see him going anywhere but I strongly feel a decent coach would be able to adjust to the skills of his players to get the most out of his roster.  Doc doesn't do that.

I don't think Tommy loathes Doc but he's definitely from a different coaching philosophy (one with proven results from the C's of the mid-70's) that contrasts with how Doc coaches.

When you threaten to get rid of guys but then make NO CHANGES to either how they're being used or their playing time...what are you accomplishing?  How is that going to fix anything?  What was the point of that little rant?  Who was it directed at?  Because NOTHING Doc said had ANY affect on how he handled the team in the very next game.  Why should any of the players take Doc seriously?  How do any of them even know if they're the problem or what they're supposed to do about it?

Oh, wait.  We're talking about the Holy Doc, the most perfectest coach in the history of all sports.  My bad.

Jeff Van Gundy, and he's not the only legitimate candidate.

Doc has one championship to his credit and he did that with a great team.  He hasn't won 2 or 3 or 9.  He didn't win big in Orlando and he didn't win big in Boston before KG and Ray showed up.  Doc's proven to be a good coach, but his reputation for coaching genius has been greatly exaggerated.

You threaten to get rid of guys because your roster stinks. Shuffling one underperforming player in for another will not change anything, and the players who actually do perform cannot play multiple positions at the same time.

A trade is imminent at this point, as soon as we find someone to take our junk, since it's quite evident that the pieces that we have are unable or unwilling to play their roles the way they should.
