I Guess I'm An Idiot

Doc Rivers apparently thinks that anyone holding him responsible for doing his job is an idiot.  Well count me as an idiot then.

Steve Bulpett (who was the star of the show last night) has the story:

We figured Rivers would jump at the chance to embrace the no-excuses mantra. We were wrong. 

"No. I don’t think you can just say we’re ready," he said. "I’m realistic. If our guys are ready to win, we’ll win. If they’re not and they need another year, then we need another year. There’s no years on it. That’s such idiotic stuff. You just don’t know when it’s going to come together, or if it’s going to come together."

If a player has the requisite talent and aptitude to learn, then exactly whose fault is it if he doesn’t perform to his capabilities?

"I don’t know," said Rivers. "I don’t think it’s necessarily on the coach. I think it’s on both of us, but I don’t think you can say, ‘Now this year I’ve got to get them to do this.’ That’s just idiotic thinking."
