Former NBA player Josh Smith is the latest person to pile on the Philadelphia 76ers and head coach Doc Rivers.
After the 76ers were eliminated from the postseason in a Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks at home, Smith unleashed a wild rant against his former coach on Instagram.
“Yea Doc Rivers, you talked all that s–t about Paul George and how Tyronn Lue was going to have the same offense,” Smith said, as transcribed by the New York Post.

“Shut your bum a– up, man. You no in-game adjustments having a–, man. Start giving n—– their real credit, man. That’s why your b—h a– has that karma on your a– and you can’t get the past the second round.”
Smith then got really personal by bringing up Rivers’ wife.
“I finally get why your wife almost left you man. You don’t know how to make in-game adjustments,” he said. “Everybody figured your a– out, man. You don’t know how to make in-game adjustments, man. And don’t nobody really like your cap a–. Yea, you’re losing your power.”
It’s never fun to be on the receiving end of this kind of criticism, but hey, Doc, at least you aren’t Ben Simmons.
