Report: Doc Rivers Almost got Into a Fight With Rondo
- Updated: June 24, 2013
With Doc Rivers leaving the Boston Celtics today, a report of coach Doc Rivers going after point guard Rajon Rondo.
Doc Rivers’s “intense dislike” for Rajon Rondo is the primary reason the coach wanted to leave the Boston Celtics, according to Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com.
The feud between Rivers and his point guard led to an incident during a team meeting in the locker room in which Rondo cursed at Rivers, who responded by trying to fight Rondo before the “fracas” was broken up, a source close to the team told Sheridan.
The report does not specify when the fight occurred.
This may help explain some reasons of why Rondo was part of trade rumors.
