He was so mocking the State by his comment. Actually I think it was funny!!
To all you guys who think Doc didn't mock Utah by saying he doesn't swear cuz he
respects where he is, go watch the actual post game video of him saying it... It
is obvious he said it in a mocking fashion while he was laughing.
DSB- Your'e at an NBA game, grow up or wear some ear muffs. I am sure you are
not free from profanity anywhere you set in the crowd. Doc Rivers is a
classy guy, and I admire him for his confession. It is hard to look up to any
of the "thugs" that play now. Way to be honest even if you did not let out how
you truly felt.
I think the first technical was really for Doc's "body of work" during the whole
game. I was close enough to the Celtics' bench to hear the endless complaining
about the calls even though the Jazz were the ones who really got victimized. I
heard the officials tell Doc to calm down at least once before the technical.
Doc's reaction was to throw his hands up in a "oh I'm so afraid of you" mocking
manner. None of us liked the officiating Doc, but give us a break. The calls
were overwhelmingly in your favor. Look at all the people we had in foul trouble
which is what kept you in the game.
But love the Jazz. I was at the games and the calls definitely went Boston's
way.Ed Malloy is just pure and simple incompetent and Crawford just plain
lacks integrity. Good for Doc for mocking Malloy. He deserved it!
Doc is a good guy, but he was poking fun at us Utahns a little bit. Everyone is
a bit naive to think an NBA coach isn't going to swear in Utah!
Lived in Utah 5 years and worked w/many LDS folks outside Utah. And SOME of
these LDS people have real trash mouths, just as bad as Sloan (although Sloan
much milder than he used to be).
Or is he mocking Sloan?I'd prefer to think he is being classy. I
respect him for it. However, he is lying through his teeth when he says he
doesn't feel the first technical foul was justified. Its obvious he wanted to
get kicked out of the game.
people are mad at sloan because he swears during games?? what are you, 5?
is a class act. Good job-Bishop Ainge-in hiring him!
I love how Glen Davis has been very clear, I must have heard atleast 100 times,
that he doesn't want to be called Big Baby anymore. Its like one of those
recurrign stories you always hear... like the stories about Jimmer's brother and
him playing in prison. Or Ronnie Brewer broke his arm and thats why he shoots
funny. Or Matt Harpring played football growing up and comes from a football
Coach Sloan also feels the same was as Doc Rivers, and that's why he never
swears at home games...
Thanks Doc for respecting us here in Utah. If only we could get our own coach
to do the same. Love Sloan as a coach, but his trash mouth is pretty offensive
to me. Also, refs called everything against the Jazz only in the first half -
second half everything called against the Celtics. I don't know if they
consider their biased calls at halftime and then make it up in the second half,
but I think it balanced out by the end of the game. Here's a novel idea - pay
attention and call a fair game all night.
Great win for the Jazz, Utah has been really been consistent since the streak a
month and a half ago. Now if only Denver could start losing some games.
and the refs were calling everything against the jazz. Okur got called for
everything and did anyone see KG shoulder checking wesley?
I really liked seeing KK in play. I am impressed with his talent...he will
develop to be a great player if we give him a chance, like tonight. And, with
major playing time to his credit...he helped us win against a great team. Thanks
Jerry, for letting the big guys get some time...we sure need them.
Thanks Doc for being classy and respecting our state as well as your opponent.
Good luck on the rest of the season.
