Every once in a while, Doc drops a hidden gem in his generally innocuous media sessions. Today, he farted in Cleveland's general direction:
“I don’t know if we feel like that,” Doc Rivers said. “I think everyone
feels like we are. We’ve been there before. Going into the championship
series [against the Lakers], no one picked us outside of Boston. I don’t
think we care one way or the other. We have to go out there and earn
it. Orlando is the defending champions of the East. I don’t know how
Cleveland’s been anointed that already. They have to earn it and we want
to earn it. We feel good.”
Suck on that one, Cavaliers.
Don't know about you… but that sounded to me like Doc dropping the gauntlet.
