Doc Rivers on George’s criticism: “Tai Liu was sitting next to me. The Clippers game won’t change much. “

Philadelphia head coach Doc Rivers has responded to criticism from Clippers forward Paul George.

George accused the former coach of his team of allegedly misusing him. Rivers said it was everyone’s fault, the coaches and the players, for the Clippers’ failures.

“Look, working with George was a pleasure for me. I don’t have many words on this.

The new Clippers head coach Tai Liu sat right next to me as my assistant. So I don’t think the team’s game will change radically.

We lost that playoff match, for which everyone should be held accountable. Obviously, we could all do our job better.

The players could have done better. That’s all that concerns me in this matter, I will leave this topic, ”- said Rivers.
