Dressed-down Doc Rivers arrives in LA
Rivers, one of the most successful active coaches in the NBA, was wearing low-top sneakers and a short-sleeved shirt at his introductory news conference a day after he was acquired from the Boston Celtics.
“I flew in from Orlando, that’s where I stay in the off-season, and I basically wear shorts and T-shirts all summer.”
Prior to joining the Celtics in 2004, Rivers spent just over four seasons as head coach of the Orlando Magic, earning NBA coach of the year honors in his first season when he led a team that was expected to finish last to a playoff berth in 2000.
Despite telling the dozens of reporters gathered at the Clippers practice facility that he was uncomfortable being the center of attention, Rivers was less bashful about his goals for himself and his new team.
