Uh-oh, Nate Robinson has been doing some “verbal sparring” with Doc Rivers. That’s bad.
Don’t worry, though, the two were just discussing the Marquette-Washington opening round game. (ESPNBoston)
“We don’t bet, of course,” Rivers said with a smile when asked if the two had a friendly wager on the game. “But we have discussed the Marquette spanking of Washington [Thursday]. We have definitely talked about it — and Nate has talked about it quite a bit, as you might imagine. We have to win that game, that’s very important.”
Doc’s Marquette boys had to win that game, but they didn’t. Instead, Washington, winners of the worst major conference in recent history, beat his Golden Eagles thanks to Quincy Pondexter’s bucket with 1.7 seconds left.
Something tells me the Diminutive Dunker isn’t going to let Doc live this down. But there is a silver lining for Doc:
At least he didn’t go to Georgetown.
