NBA media in a civil war over former Celtics coach Doc Rivers and accountability


Fans of the Boston Celtics and the broader NBA community have recently found themselves in a contentious debate surrounding Doc Rivers’ role as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. This division has been particularly noticeable with the criticisms raised by former NBA player turned broadcaster, JJ Redick, notably on his “Old Man and the 3” podcast. Redick took issue with Rivers, accusing him of avoiding responsibility for his teams through his behavior on social media.

A significant segment of the NBA media landscape swiftly rallied to defend Rivers, and among his supporters were his son, Austin Rivers, who is also a broadcaster, and the current Bucks guard, Patrick Beverley. This led to a heated exchange of words, and the disagreement appears to persist, fueled by the ongoing comments and reactions surrounding the issue.
