The Celtics were walking off the floor at Staples Center after
outlasting the Lakers, 87-86, Feb. 18 and Rivers turned to his
administrative right hand man, Jeff Twiss.
“Do you have an envelope?” Rivers asked.
Twiss was puzzled.
The game was over. There was no need for tickets.
But Rivers wanted an envelope. So he got Rivers an envelope.
They walked into the Celtics locker room, which was booming after
breaking up the Lakers’ four-game winning streak. Rivers got their
attention. He told everyone in the room to give him $100.
The people in the room were more puzzled than Twiss was.
Rivers took $100 from everyone in the room – players, coaches,
managers – to the tune of $2,600 and put it all in the envelope. He then
hid the envelope in the locker room.
Goddammit… I want to play for this guy.
