Doc was asked about Avery Johnson being fired, and he was asked about his job being on the line. He was asked this. Are you afraid of losing your job?
“Yeah, I am,” Rivers said with a laugh. “I mean, shoot, I may have to golf for the rest of the year.”
The Celtics have a long list of issues, and I had a brief, and small list this morning. But I left off the coaching. I feel as if Doc feels safe. I hear all the time about job security, and I think Doc is untouchable. So I wonder if that hurts his performance. The level of urgency is down. Because nothing will happen with him. I love Doc, and yes i disagree with Doc at times. Especially with small ball. But Doc has no choice really to play small. Collins is all he has, and he's a foul prone big. After that we have Sully, and Bass who are not the biggest, and baddest big men.
We often talk about trading players. But what if your coach gets to relaxed?
