Doc Rivers Would Like (Some of) His Players to Put a Lid on it

Coach Rivers doesn’t mind someone like KG mouthing off all game long; Kendrick Perkins, however, not so much.

    “Shut yo fat @ss up Perk” Rivers said off the record.

    Have some class champs….starting to lose a lot of respect for KG and his “brotherhood” tatics. Maybe Anthony Peeler needs to put him in his place again.

    “Mission accomplished”, Quentin Richardson was overheard saying.

  • Tom

    I hope the ignore Doc and keep talking, it’ll make it that much sweeter when a teams steps up and takes them down… i.e, the pistons, tonight.

    I highly doubt anyone was gonna be talking junk to Sheed anyway.

    As much as I wanted to see those guys beat the Pistons and win it all last year, I’d love to see it the other way around this year. The Celtics have quickly become an arrogant and dislikable team, starting from this preseason.

  • ciolkstar

    If someone went at Perk the way BET just proposed, I can almost guarantee that would end up in a fight. Perk don’t play that isht.

  • ClydeSays

    Those guys can talk, as long as they’re winning. It’s not golf.

    You’re not winning? Shut the hell up and play.

  • Breeze

    i really want to understand how can the celtics be arrogant..maybe they need to look at thie roster for a second…you have 3 future hall of famers..your the best team on paper in the east since the bulls with rodman…these guys cant be serious the ony one in boston should be arrogant is danny ainge for making the damn team!!!

  • underdog

    I can’t wait tonights Pistons – Celtics.

  • tealish

    Breeze: I don’t understand… to me, it does make sense that they’re arrogant because they DO have 3 future HOFers, are defending champs, are winning despite not playing near the best ball… I guess Ainge can pat himself on the back too, but the players sure have something to do with it.

  • polly

    Actually, you’d think hall of famers would feel all right enough with their accomplishments that they wouldn’t need to be such p*ssies. Please, KG taking on a point guard and then tangling with Bogut? How about a little Shaq with that ‘tude, paintywaist? All from a guy that crumbles in crunch time? What an embarassment. I used to love the guy, too, I swear.

    True tealish. But were only 10-12 games into the season, and they are acting like Leprucan Gangsters. KG was always a talker, but it’s gotten CRAZY. Plus them being Posey and PJ Brown-less is not looking good for the when the Playoffs roll around. The Hawks took them to 7 games last year right? Right.

  • http://hypebeast.com Spaceship Jay

    WOOH That’s agressive polly…. Paintywaist!?!

  • vtrobot

    these are the same exact celtics as last year. i think because they reached their goal last year, perceptions of how much they’re talking and of their overall attitude have changed a lot more than any of the players. KG, PP, eddie, and Perk are going to keep talking a lot this year. Leon and Ray are going to beat people like true gentlemen. Get out of the way. The Big 3 liked the feeling of winning a championship.

  • niQ

    don’t they have bill walker who’s doing all the mouthing? lol

    “they can talk all they want as long as they are also playing hard”, rivers necessarily added.

    ray allen, consummate professional

  • thesubwayconnection

    Perk bitches a LOT. Every call, regardless of whether it goes against him, his face looks as such: :O

  • MeloMan13

    until u beat them, shut the f*ck up

    Doc Rivers calling the suspension on KG as a joke, what I think as a joke is Doc Rivers being a coach. He just rides on the Big 3′s back

  • riggs

    wow the bandwagon has fully disbanded and all the riders are getting on other transportation?

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    I’m a C’s fan and Perk does whine a bit and always has a sourpuss on. It seems to work for him though as seen by tonight’s score at the end of 3. Hey Betcats, what do you mean “off the record”? Were you there hiding in Perk’s jockstrap?

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    Polly-since when does KG “crumble at crunch time”? Are you smoking crack? This guy almost single-handedly took a team from worst to first with heart, attitude and plain old skills-so what the hell are you flapping your gums about…?

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    Riggs speaks the truth-they’ll all be at Foot Locker the morning of game 1 of the 2009 Finals getting their KG & Pierce jerseys.

  • http://www.therezidue.com Maurice Garland

    yeah man, the Celts are ghey. such drama queens. crying tears of joy after every dunk, pounding their chest after chasing each loose ball, sick of it. and no, im not just saying that because im a hawks fan

  • ab_40


    your team = your best players mentality ask the rockets, ask the mavericks, ask the lakers.

    KG talks a lot so all these other guys think hey he’s the best guy on this team we won a chip I can be that guy that vocal guy on this team with him… NO and untill the celts don’t get that suspensions are gonna be there

  • Crook

    Sesa, M Garland….chill, it’s not that serious. When my Celtics were losing and Pierce was yapp’n no one paid attn but as soon as he is blessed with a ring everyone says he talks too much. Some of us NEED spell check and some need to actually watch the games withr knowledge. (THINK, it’s NOT illegal yet)Oh, and as far as Doc’s coaching? He is good. Would you consider P Jackson or Red A great coaches? I’m in no way saying he is on that upper level but didn’t those guys win with HOFers? Neither of them took a band of bench players and won a chip so chill with the “he has HOFers so he doesn’t really coach” mess. Game management and substitutions are keys to great coaching and if you don’t believe me try coaching a youth team…Peace and have a great Turkey day!!
