The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 on Sunday afternoon, making it over a decade since Doc Rivers last made the Conference Finals. Former LA Clippers player JJ Redick wasted no time taking a shot at Rivers following Game 7, posting this Tweet in reference to comments Rivers made about the Lob City Clippers:

The quote from Rivers came during an ESPN segment earlier this season, when he said, "Not trying to take anything away from that [Clippers] team. That team was never going to win, when you look back at it. We just didn't get along well enough as a group and you can't win without cooperation. That's the only way you can win."

Redick responded to these comments shortly after they surfaced, saying on a podcast episode with Jamal Crawford, "Everybody I've talked to about [Lob City] has kind of owned their own mistakes, if that makes sense, and realizes especially later on that we still could have had something special. And to not get any of that accountability from [Rivers], and the interesting part too, is he talked about players not getting along. He was brought in as a personality manager... and he was the GM. So if people weren't getting along, it's kind of on you."

Now with Rivers and his team failing again, Redick took a shot at his former coach on Twitter.
