Rivers Steering Milicic Away from Past
Doc Rivers opened up Saturday afternoon about how he plans to approach members of his team in this critical season. He talked with the Italian media for about 20 minutes and said he plans to take time reshaping mentalities and approaches.
On Darko Milicic: “He just needs a chance; he just needs a team that wants him to do his job without asking him to be the No. 2 pick in the draft.
“You can see that he gets frustrated easy, Rivers said. So we’re trying to eliminate those episodes. From being around for a short time, as a coach I can probably feel he’s played his career backwards. He lives in the past a lot and we’re trying to get him to live in the future.”
