pierce is known for being a bonafide closer. rivers is still one of the better coaches in the league. expecting perfection out of him with the personnel he has is foolish, notorious.
Doc Rivers has more than enough fucking talent to do something.
You telling me Pierce, KG, Rondo, Bradley, Sullinger, Bass, JET, Lee, Green & Barbosa isn't enough talent to at least be over .500 in the East?
Doc Rivers is complete garbage and it's a damn shame that piece of shit gets talked about as if he's a great coach. Nothing more than a product of KG and Tom Thibodeau. Guy was crap in Orlando and was crap in Boston before Danny magically acquired KG & Ray and hired Thibs. Only reason Doc looked good is because of Thibs, KG and stacked teams. And any coach can look great with a stacked team. See Vinny Del Negro with the Clippers.
