Doc Rivers: “On paper we’re the NBA Champions”

This is hilarious. It seems that Doc is still in denial from the loss. He’s been saying a lot of things lately and well… read for yourselves.

“Of course paper doesn’t play, people play,” said Rivers, turning to address his players directly. “And on paper we’re the NBA Champions. Now, we have to do it on the floor. So that’s the next step.”

  • MrL

    Well, on paper the Lakers might look like the champions too and so do the Miami Heat. But the ones with the rings are the LA Lakers. And they are going to be called the “defending champions” for this whole season. But no matter what you tell Doc he always makes up some weird excuses.

  • Djzzero2009

    Doc is stupid lol. Always trying to act like they the sh!t lols, but they aint. Lakers got this year.

  • trippleoccho

    I needed that laugh LMAOOOOOOOO

  • Rocksierra702

    This Idiot is funny, I needed a good laugh. Its also funny that they think Doc is a good coach! He was almost going to get fired until the got him a all-star players. This will be his last year he will have a decent team.

    the celtics will earn it not buy it like the yankee/lakers.see where the yankees are.my pinkie.my knee.

    • lakerfan

      yup and the celtics are up your a$$. and lebron’s on ur nuts.

    • Hahahaha

      U right laffs atu, the celtics did really earn in game 7.

    • laffs atu

      My apologies, i didnt realize both teams are millions over the luxury cap, which means we can’t buy any players unless its with the midlevel.

      • prlaker

        baseball does’nt have a salary cap dumbshit, that’s how you know a franchice its good, in basketball every team has the same chance of getting talent unlike baseball….dumbshit

        • laffs atu

          except some cities have a better chance to lure free agents due to the number of fans and weather dumbshit. since those cities have more fans, they’re also able to afford to overpay for players as well dumbshit

          • KB#24

            You stupid as hell laffs. Now you gunna hate the Lakers cuz they happen to be in a well populated and well located city. Get a life and stop coming on just to hate on the #1 team in the NBA.

    • BILESKIDS

      NO DOC! ON PAPER THE CELTICS ARE SKIDMARKS! AND LAFFS AT2, IT WAS LITTLE BUT IT WASNT YOUR PINKIE! 331 TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR TUESDAY NIGHTS RING AND BANNER PRESENTATION GAME! WHAT WILL RON ARTEST DO WHEN HE RECEIVES HIS RING? http://bit.ly/a6iLTr

    • ignard

      compare the Celtics roster from 2007 to their roster today, they have more all-stars and hall of famers then the Lakers.

      • 242LakerFan

        That’s why they play the games, baby.
        2004 Lakers: Kobe – All-Star; Shaq – All-Star; Malone – All-Star; Payton – All-Star; Grant – All-Star. Champions? Detroit.

        • David

          True…But if Malone was healthy I still think we would have won that series.

          • 242LakerFan

            That’s exactly the point. IF

  • sam

    excuses…..excuses….and more dumb excuses, Ron Artest was right about this guy, Doc Rivers just cant face the facts that our Lakers are STILL the champions.

    GET OVER IT ALREADY!!! Our Lakers won and your corny ass Celtics lost! Ancient history

  • kevin

    man this guy is a full of shitttttttttttt. Get over with and hopefully his team will make it out of the east with a bunch of old whining full and a lazy fat albert.

  • F__K That!

    Doc, Talk about living in denial. LOL
    C’s will take another 20 years to win another title.

  • cliff

    Sorry Doc. This isn’t 2004. On paper, your guys are still over the hill.

    • Yellowpurplefever

      Right on. A bunch of hallers, passssed their prime. This is not 2000/2001 season buddy.

  • yash

    tbh im a laker fan, but Imo celts are the deepest team in the nba so far. if they almost beat us without perks, now they just got better. their bench got better with west, before they had no bench, now they have a bench. tallest team in the nba. i think we’ll see another rematch this yr

    • cjm

      you’re right, they didn’t have perkins for the finals — except for the first 6 games, 3 of which they lost. not sure if they are the tallest team in the league, but they are certainly the oldest team. every year that goes by, they get weaker, not stronger; they are further away from beating us this year, than they were last year. if we meet them again in the finals, we will beat them in less than 7 games this time.

      • laffs atu

        lakers have the oldest average age this year sir.

        • andy

          hey dumbass, its not about the average age. if my team has a 40 yr old and a 10 yr old on it only, the average age is 25. not very representative. the celtics’ best players are a bunch of mummies with some young bench players lol.

          • ONPAPER…

            LMFAO nice job andy!

  • karkrazie626

    So Doc does have a PHD. In denial!!!

  • mr.laker19

    What paper he lookin at?

    • from RealGM

      He looked at THE paper, filled it with weed, rolled it and smoked it.

  • F the Green Turds

    Celtics = Paper Champions.

  • cjm

    from reading the article, i think i know where doc got that lesion on his throat from.

  • showtime4eva

    when you lose,you lose.you either regroup and try again or shut up and quit.the score is what counts. the Lakers ended the game with a higher score someone needs to explain that to doc. his denial is getting beyond stupid he can feel free to try again, but shut up and accept loss.as for paper? i don’t know what paper he’s talking about.nba is starting to sound like wwe.

  • Trem

    Celtics, their players, coaches, management, fans (mostly bandwagon) = cocky, arrogant, sore, hypocritical losers. No surprise here, Doc saying shit that don’t make sense, he’s obioulsy trying to motivate his team, but maybe he should say something that is true lol

  • prlaker

    i remember at the begining of last season, doc rivers told his team on the locker room “we are the champs, us” we all saw how that turned up, celts r nothing but a group of sore losers still talking about how perkins was’nt there, drew was hurt and could barely play in that series as i recall, kobe my favorite player ever played like shit and the lakers still won, the lakers are way better and rightfully earned their 16th tittle period

  • Robert.

    I think what Doc meant to say is that ‘he thinks’ on paper the Celtics are better than the Lakers (which is ALSO not true).
    .
    It’s not even correct logistically to say that they are the champions on paper. The championship has nothing to do with statistics, only factual wins/losses, that’s all. He can’t count the ‘possibilities’ given one or another player would be absent, present, etc. He said KG was out last year, so ‘on paper’ they beat the Magic? (i.e., if KG were there, they would have gone to the finals?). Perkins was out the ‘last game’ (only) so ‘on paper’ they beat the Lakers?
    .
    Well, ‘on paper’, if the Lakers are fully healthy, they are STILL the Champions. In fact ‘on paper’, the Lakers would have been Champs in 2008 because they ‘would have’ had Drew, and Ariza so that ‘on paper’, the Lakers team ‘would have been’ superior to the Celtics.
    .
    ‘In fact’, the Celtics won in 2008 – ok? they were champs then. ‘In fact’, the Lakers were Champs and are still ‘reigning’ Champs. ‘In fact’, we will know in late June who the Champs are, regardless of what it says ‘on paper’.

    • laffs atu

      Lakers 2008 Paper Champions!

    • Robert.

      Yes, by Doc Rivers’ logic.

  • 242LakerFan

    HEY, GUESS WHAT? I just wrote down the Lakers as NBA Champions for the next ten years straight! ON PAPER!!!

    • showtime4eva

      in permanent marker..

    • Robert.

      Dude! I’m buying it!
      .
      (p.s., does ‘electronic’ media count as paper? – if so ….
      ….
      ….
      Lakers NBA Champions for next ten years straight !!! )

      • 242LakerFan

        I had a boss who used to say “Paper is like a $10 whore. It’ll just lie there and let you put anything you want on it.”

      • 242LakerFan

        Same goes for the internet. It’s the only way laffs atu gets any play, after all.

  • lakers0828

    Doc Rivers the Worst NBA Coach in the History and is Full Ok Kobes Shit in his Mouth lol

  • sam

    Seriously, what a sad case people like Doc Rivers can be sometimes. It’s people like him that I just can’t stand sometimes, always trying to find ways and something “clever” to say so he can make his corny ass team look perfect. LAKERS WON AND CELTICS LOST!!!! so get over it you whinny little bitch!

    • Robert.

      it’s funny. I ‘kind of’ had some respect for Doc Rivers in the past. After his ‘Perk’ statement, that did it for me. Any respect went down the toilet.
      .
      And now he’s keeping it going.
      .
      It’s kind of like the ‘media’ crowning LBJ MVP, and Kobe continuing to earn the Finals MVP for actually ‘winning’ the Championship.
      .
      The ‘rings’ ring true. Listen to the sound of the Figueroa parade. WE know who’s Champ.

  • BILESKIDS

    IN WHEELCHAIRS THE CELTICS ARE THE NBA CHAMPIONS TOO! http://bit.ly/a6iLTr

  • http://57.amklac/ laffs atu

    doc` s right,,,,,,,,,,only reason the fakers won because perk didn `t play and the refs were in bed with kobe the night before game 7……….you scratch my back, i scratch yours.

    • Hahahaha

      And u can say the same for 2008 when we didn’t have Bynum. And while was rewinding and replaying game 7 over and over all summer, if I recall correctly celtics lead for 3 quarters……it’s just like Doc says about his team, their paper champs that’s why they couldn’t close out game 7.

    • SHOWTIME4EVA

      bull shit they won in 08 cause Drew didn’t play. you have no credibility anyway laffs,so shut up.

      • SHOWTIME4EVA

        we shoulda been going for our fourpeat.if drew played in 08.

        • http://www.kevinsmoore.com Moorepower310

          why do people forget that Ariza suffered an injury in 08 also? We were missing 2 starters.

          • Westcoast B!tch

            In 08, Drew & Ariza>Gasol & Odom. Bynum owns the celtics cuz he’s a big body and he’s physical. Gasol has grown a ton since 08, but he wasn’t ready. Also Bynum’s D is fukkkin excellent.

      I Want Boston in the finals again….

    • ONPAPER…

      oh we quickly forgot that the Lakeshow didnt have andrew bynum in that 08 series and trevor ariza played on one foot. AND bynum played on one foot as well this year. Keep talking you CeltSH*T FAN.

  • Lakers 24 7

    That’s right, Doc. ON PAPER you may be the NBA champions, but on the floor, it’s the Lakers! ..and quite frankly, it don’t mean shit on paper.

  • Hahahaha

    We we’re having our reunion lets let our 2008 championship rings touch when we shake hands, BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY WE ARE BEATING THE 2010 LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sam

    I really hope we will see another Lakers and Celtics final this upcoming season because if we do beat Boston again, I would like to see what more dumb excuses doc rivers might say to the media, because if he does then that just shows how pathetic people like him are that just can’t accept the loss.

  • http://57.amklac/ laffs atu

    ignard is right fat-ass. the celtics have a better, more experienced core then the lakers.you just can` t handle the truth.none of you can, you all live in la la land after all.

    • sam

      ok so who are the champs right now huh???? THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS!!!!!!!!

      why the heck are you even on this laker form anyway? NO CELTIC FANS ALLOWED!

    Doc is soooo heart broken. He has been denied yet again of another championship, and he’s still hurting by it! Just like Michael Jordan denied Doc a championship when he was playing with those pathetic Knicks team back in the 90′s, and now he has to deal with yet another player of greatness Mr. Bryant! Doc it’s time to hang it up, because it will be along time before Bryant hangs it up! And by then, the big three will be playing checkers toghether in the Old Folks Home….Oh I’m sorry! You’ll be their too!

  • doc’s_excuse

    You are starting to sound like Mickey Rivers you ass clown. You have to play the games and you have to play them with the players you have, injuries are part of the game Do(u)c(he). Get a clue, quit acting like Mercury Morris and get over it. We know your whole locker room was crying after game 7 last year, sounds like the players left it there and you didn’t. Here’s a tissue, give a good hard blow and STFU!
