Doc Rivers Biography
Doc Rivers was born October 13, 1961 and is a former basketball player and the current head coach of the NBA's Boston Celtics. Rivers was known for his defense while playing in the NBA. His skills as floor general and point guard helped him transition into a coach following his playing career.
Rivers was drafted in the second round (31st overal]) of the 1983 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He graduated from Marquette while completing course work as an NBA player. He spent the next seven seasons as a starter in Atlanta, assisting star Dominique Wilkins as the team found great regular-season success. He averaged a double-double for the 1986-87 season with 12.8 points and 10.0 assists per game. Rivers later spent one year as a starter for the ++Los Angeles Clippers and two more for the New York Knicks++, before finishing his career as a bench player for the San Antonio Spurs.
After spending a year working as a commentator for the NBA on ABC (calling the 2004 Finals with Al Michaels), he took over the Boston Celtics coaching position in 2004. During his first years with the Celtics, he was criticized by many in the media for his coaching style, most vociferously by ESPN's [[Bill Simmons]], who in 2006 publicly called for Rivers to be fired in his columns.
As a result of the Celtics' 109-93 victory over the ++New York Knicks++ on January 21, 2008, Rivers, as the coach of the team with the best winning percentage in the Eastern Conference, earned the honor to coach the East for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. On June 17, 2008, Rivers won his first NBA Championship as a head coach
