In addition to denying Carmelo Anthony’s Monday night pursuit of Kevin Garnett was provoked by KG making lewd remarks about Anthony’s estranged wife, La La Vazquez, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers told WEEI listeners Thursday that he’s not likely to forgive Hawks GM Danny Ferry’s role in PG Rajon Rondo’s recent suspension. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Chris Viviamore :
“Well, I do (have a problem with it),” Rivers said on his weekly interview. “Guys do that. I rarely do that. I don’t know if I’ve ever done that — I’ve been in the league awhile — where you’re turning other players in and stuff. I don’t know. I don’t like it, but it’s his choice.”
The station then asked Rivers if he was satisfied that Ferry was fined.
“You know, I don’t care,” Rivers said. “I really don’t. It didn’t bother me one way or the other. I just didn’t like it, especially in a game like that. That wasn’t the reason they lost, you know? So to me that is sour grapes, and I don’t like that.”
Ferry declined to comment on Rivers’ interview.
