Maybe you shouldn't tell the whole world about your basic shortcomings

So everyone called Doc Rivers a terrible coach last year because he had a terrible team and lost a shitload of games. This year, you would be hard pressed to find a negative word spoken about him. Maybe that's a mistake.
''I'm never great in math,'' Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. ''So I couldn't figure out if we were up by 30. I wasn't even paying a lot of attention to it. But I knew we were playing well and, obviously, I looked.''
I shouldn't even bother with a comment but did he really say that? "I can't subtract one small number from a slightly larger number and see if the answer is greater or less than 30". Fuck that's sad.
