Doc Rivers Safe in Boston?
Not even a month into the NBA season and the Los Angeles Lakers kicked Mike Brown – a former NBA coach of the Year in 2009 with a winning percentage better than 65 percent – to the curb.
Avery Johnson, who was the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November, was fired by the Brooklyn Nets.
Both were fired for, among other things, underperforming.
About a third of the season has been completed, and it’s clear that the Celtics (14-14) fall into that category.
But don’t look for the C’s to make any kind of radical changes anytime soon.
“Doc (Rivers) has proven his worth as a coach,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s President of Basketball Operations, told CSNNE.com. “There’s nobody I want more to coach my team, than Doc Rivers.”
