A: But I never talked trash, I’m not a trash talker. Q: Tell me about your matchups with him. A: It was wars. It was competitive. I love Paul. I love playing against Paul. He’s just so tough, he’s just so tough. World Peace also said he wrote a book abou...

Doc wasn't a fan of KG and Jordan trade

For once Doc isn't jabbing the Boston Celtics, or is he? Maybe he's taunting them, maybe he's saying "you could of had Jordan, and I know you wished you had him, but I do".
