Doc Rivers Feels Rejuvenated by Clippers
“It’s strange to be anywhere other than Boston right now, honestly,” Doc Rivers said.
He paused, then laughed. “So in that way it’s different,” said Rivers, who didn’t want to be part of the Celtics’ rebuild and led an exodus that continued with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierceand Jason Terry being traded from Boston to the Brooklyn Nets. “But the excitement and the energy that I have because it’s something new, that’s been great. In retrospect, it’s probably what I needed.”
As much as he needs fresh scenery, the Clippers will need his strategizing and motivational skills to meet the high expectations they will face this season.
