The ESPN broadcast of the NBA Draft got interesting toward the end when new Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers addressed comments from ESPN analyst Bill Simmons.

Earlier in the show, Simmons - an unapologetic Celtics fan - commented on how he believed that Rivers quit on Boston and that is why they had to make the deal with the Clippers for Rivers.

Toward the end of the second round, ESPN's Shelley Smith spoke to Rivers in L.A. about the Clippers draft and at the end, she asked about Simmons' belief that he quit on the Celtics.

What happened next was uncomfortable gold.

"I would like to call him an idiot but I'm too classy for that," Rivers said.

After the interview was finished, ESPN went back to the hosts where everyone sat in a stunned silence before Simmons addressed Rivers' comment.

Simmons has been a lightning rod on the show this season as he balances being a fan and a journalist.

It all came to a head on Thursday night and it was nothing short of interesting.

I'm not sure how long this video will stay up, but here it is in all of its glory.
