Doc Rivers is Ready for Football Season

The Celtics’ bench boss had a few motivational words for the New England Patriots. Yes sir, Football season is nearly here: “Bill Belichick lauded Celtics coach Doc Rivers yesterday for addressing the team Monday as part of an NFL-sponsored life-skills presentation, saying it was ‘one of the best presentations that we have heard,’ Belichick said. ‘He was awesome and talked about a lot of things that he had dealt with and experienced through his career, from not making the basketball team in the fifth grade – or whatever it was – to being an All-American in high school, to going to college [at Marquette], to being a point guard in the NBA, to having some injuries he had to deal with, losing championship games as a player to winning them as a coach.'”
