It's one of the big questions hanging over the Celtics this postseason. Will Doc Rivers come back next year… or will he take some time off to be with his family?
It's a question debated by Michael Holley, Cedric Maxwell and SI's Ian Thomsen. It'll be hard for Doc to walk away, and the good thing about this year is he's been able to get to see his kids at their various events more than he thought.
But the travel schedule HAS to be wearing on him. He's trying to balance being a coach, which he obviously love to do… and a family man, which is obviously very important to him. He's very lucky to have an older team that needs a lot of off days… because those off days let him travel. But the C's practice schedule will change… eventually.
It might be too much to ask for Doc to have a Jerry Sloan kind of run with the C's…. but I've been clear about my feelings. I want him back. I think most people do.
So what's your guess?
