Doc Rivers Tried To Get Ejected So He Could Watch Golf With Danny Ainge

 

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers apparently is a huge fan of golf. Rivers once told the amazing story of how he, back when he was coaching the Boston Celtics, tried to get thrown out of the game, so that he could watch the Masters with Danny Ainge.

 

“When I was coaching the Celtics, I think there were four games left in the season and everything had been wrapped up as far as playoffs. The Masters was on. And at halftime, Danny Ainge tells me that Tiger’s making a run. He says, ‘Get thrown out! Get thrown out and come back and watch with me.’

So I go out and, this is like the first play in the third quarter, I go for it, like yelling and ‘ahhh!’ And I want to say it was [referee] Jake O’Donnell, but I’m not sure who it was. And he just stares at me. Nothing.

Then during the free throw, he tells me to come over. He says, ‘I want to watch it, too.’”
