Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said Monday that he was “surprised how sensitive” the Golden State Warriors are about his comment in a recent Grantland interview, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Ben Bolch.
“I’m surprised how sensitive they are about it,” Rivers said. “They are the champions, so they should just be the champions.”
Rivers’s statement comes in response to a comment he made in a Grantland article published on Oct. 6
“We don’t have any more hatred for them than anybody else,” Jordan told the Orange County Register’s Dan Woike.
The Clippers and Warriors will play for the first time in the 2015–16 season on Nov. 4 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.
