Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers continues to show himself as one of the most pleasant and affable figures in the entire NBA. With the team's return to prominence after their 2008 NBA championship and 2010 NBA Finals appearance, the Celtics have once again become one of the biggest draws throughout the country, with Rivers serving as one of the team’s many high profile attractions.
Per the above iFolloSports.com original video, Rivers is seen waving to a group of fans, as he entered the Target Center in Minneapolis. This was just a few hours before the Celtics 100-79 victory over the Timberwolves.
A few weeks prior, Rivers and other members of the Celtics were captured interacting with LA hoops enthusiasts outside of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills (CA). Per these iFolloSports.com original videos, Rivers in particular provided autograph seekers with both conversation and attention.
In a world of big egos, the Boston coach stands as one of the sports’ classicist acts.
Rivers’ nearly 30 years in professional basketball (as a player, broadcaster and coach) have given this good guy a life of great wealth. Take a look at this iFolloSports.com original story chronicling the Rivers family’s 10,000-square-foot house outside of Orlando, Florida.
Nice work Doc! Could not have happened to a better guy!
