Doc jokes about recruiting and tampering

Big 4

Of course Doc Rivers was kidding about this… but I'm sure General Stern might frown upon Doc tossing four of his starters out there as a recruiting tool.

Rivers said the fun part about getting four stars would not only be playing them together, but figuring out who would be the fifth non-Celtics player on the floor. "There's some interesting combinations you can throw out there." So who would his most likely choice be? "Whoever is closest to free agency," he said with a laugh. "Just to see how it would feel."

I think it's a funny joke.  I just wonder sometimes if the NBA higher ups have a sense of humor.

    Dwight Howard.

    Dwight is a loser. Can’t win in the playoffs. I hate his pouty attitude any time something goes wrong.

    GanTur yeah I agree now bbbuuuutttt…. if he was in green with that 4??? I might have to take a cold shower.

    I think doc is serious.Doc was talking about Howard.Howard would play better with rondo feeding him easy buckets on the daily.Plus howard could throw people around freely if he knew perkins was his back up center.That would be a great pick up for the celtics to pick up howard with garnett leaving pretty soon.

  • LOL it’s kinda funny, love it.
