Doc Rivers' blunt response to Monty Williams being fired by the Suns 

The Philadelphia 76ers' vaunted head coach, Doc Rivers, had choice words for the Phoenix Suns following their dismissal of Monty Williams. 

ESPN's Tim Bontemps tweeted: "Doc Rivers on Monty Williams being let go in Phoenix: 

'Don’t win Coach of the Year.' Rivers said he spoke to Williams yesterday but that he wouldn’t be commenting on it further, 

saying he wanted to focus on the game ahead."When the crucial Game 7 isn't on the line, 

Rivers might make a longer statement. However, although being only a few words, 

his comments above showed contempt for the Suns' choice. The job of a coach is thankless because, 

regardless of what led to the problems affecting their teams, head coaches like Williams are the first to be fired. 

As Doc mentioned, Williams, the 2022 NBA Coach of the Year, has expertise and a track record of success.
