Fast Fractionally White Kid
I had no idea that Doc Rivers, the former NBA player and current coach of my Boston Celtics, had a kid who was ranked the best HS basketball player in the country.
Austin Rivers is Duke-bound.
I had thought that when Danny Ainge hired Doc Rivers to coach some seven years go, I had thought not so much that it was a stupid signing, but more so that Ainge had *overpaid* at $5 million per year.
But Doc has clearly earned his money. I've also learned over these years that not only can the guy coach but he's also a terrific golfer and overall a very impressive *high character* individual.
