Stop Making Excuses! Three Reasons Fans Should Disregard Doc’s Comments

I guess Doc Rivers hasn't forgotten about his Celtics falling to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games during last season's NBA finals.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Doc Rivers interviewed with ESPN 980's John Thompson about his Celtics playoff loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"They still have not beaten our starting five. Our starting five against the Lakers starting five has a ring. Tell him don't forget that. We will be back strong and Perk will be there next year if there's a game seven," Doc told Thompson.

Wow. Doc Rivers surprised me with these comments. Everyone knows the Celtic players have this sort of arrogance about them but I didn't think Rivers would say something like this.

His comments pretty much meant that LA wouldn't have won the championship last season if Perkins was on the floor during Game Seven. I would have expected this from Paul Pierce or Rondo but not Rivers. It's not fair to the Lakers and their fans when Doc makes a comment like this 

Here are three reasons fans should disregard Doc Rivers' comments.
