Don't be fooled for one second. Glen Rivers used his words wisely. Glen isn't naive, dumb, stupid, or whatever negative word you can come up with that explains someone with no brain, or possible common sense. Doc over the weekend, had made a comment saying the Lakers are the greatest team in sports history. Doc was in Boston for nearly a decade. He knows the history of Boston sports, and the Celtics of course. His verbiage was a stab to everyone that's apart of the Celtics. That's the players past and present, and to the city, along with everyone fan.

Yahoo! Sports – Coach Doc Rivers invigorated by opportunity to turn the Clippers into champions

Over lunch in a Century City restaurant last week, Rivers considered the irony of it all and laughed. For weeks after the trade in 1991, Rivers refused to speak with Clippers president Andy Roeser. He played a season and moved on to the New York Knicks. All these years later, Roeser had come recruiting Rivers again. This time, everything had changed. The franchise’s commitment had transformed, and the Clippers were offering Rivers the power, pay, personnel and locale to chase championships.

“The risk is all mine,” Rivers, 51, said. “To go to an organization that hasn’t won but [two] playoff series in their entire history, in a town where the other team is the best franchise in sports history – that’s risk.

“But the opportunity – for me – gives me life. If we get this right, it will be the story of stories to tell. At this point in my life, the gamble is worth it.”

From the late summer sunlight to the talent marching into training camp, the Clippers have reinvigorated Rivers. And yet through all the deft work undertaken to upgrade the Clippers’ roster this summer, Rivers found himself talking far too much about his departure in Boston, too little about his arrival in Los Angeles.

That clip is a nice distraction from the actual real story. Glen is he now? ONLY ONE DOC, and he's Dr.J

Every word he says really puts it to all the media types and blogger who bought his bs uncritically all these years.

Pure opportunist.
