Josh Smith Blasts Doc Rivers In Vicious Rant: “Shut Your Bum A** Up”


It seems like yesterday that we were watching a young, athletic, exciting prospect in Josh Smith fly through the air and electrify the Slam Dunk Contest. However, sadly and surprisingly those days are far behind him. Coming into the league with expectation and potential, Josh Smith’s fall from grace has been as dismal as we could have imagined.

After being selected 17th overall by the Atlanta Hawks, Smith was projected as being a cornerstone for the franchise for many years to come, and after starting off promisingly, it went downhill from that point. Once Smith left Atlanta, he has bounced around the league, with stints in Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, and New Orleans.

His Clippers stint especially was awful for him as he often clashed with his coach Doc Rivers, leading to him eventually being left out of the rotation.

After the Clippers and Smith’s hometown Hawks reached their respective conference Finals, with the Hawks even beating the Doc Rivers coached 76ers, Smith went on to completely destroy Rivers, while going off on him.
