[VIDEO] Rivers Clears Up Beef With Bill Simmons

The back-and-forth between Bill Simmons, Grantland Editor and life-long Boston Celtics fan, and Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, who was the Celtics head coach prior to this season has dated back to 2006. Well, at least that’s when Simmons began publicly calling out Rivers on his ability as a head coach.

The most recent reaction from Simmons came this summer when Doc Rivers wanted out of the rebuild the Boston Celtics were heading for, sending out tweets such as these:

The feud got a bit more personal at the 2013 NBA Draft when Rivers was asked about Simmons’ comments stating “I would like to call him an idiot, but I’m too classy for that.”

Well according to Doc Rivers, that spat is no more. In an interview with Seth Davis of the Seth Davis show, Rivers and Simmons have cleared up their so-called “beef”.

To see the rest of the interview where Rivers speaks on bringing his championship experience to the Clippers, Blake Griffin, his departure from the Celtics and many more topics, tune in to CampusInsiders on Monday, October 7th at 1:30 PM/11:30 PT as Doc Rivers sits down with Seth Davis Show.
