Doc Rivers Undergoes Throat Surgery

News come via Boston.com (BTW: We think they mean Lawrence and not Tim Frank.): “Celtics’ coach Doc Rivers underwent minor throat surgery Sunday morning at Massachusetts General Hospital and missed practice Monday. Rivers could return for the Celtics’ game against New York Wednesday. Assistant coach Tim Frank said the operation was planned and Rivers could be back as soon as Tuesday’s practice session. ‘Right now the doctor doesn’t want him using his voice,’ Frank said of Rivers. ‘Everything looks good and he’s looking forward to getting back. They just want him to rest his voice box. Obviously, he’ll be using it quite a bunch, so he’ll have plenty of time.’”

    Damn that means he can’t yell at Big Baby, well I guess KG got that covered. Who’s gonna yell to Von Wafer that his time is up? Guess it’ll be Tim Frank. Lol

    What was the reason? And I dont think any throat surgery is minor, seems serious to me…….. ……. …. …. .. I think this is when someone would say that a lakers fan(idk, um, myles, or james) gets throat surgery every day from dr. Bean. ….. .. ..There, now no one else has to say it, its done.

    Throat surgery from deep throating Paul Pierce, I’ll bet it was worth it.
