An Underrated Thing About Doc

 

He’s not a tryant. He’s willing to listen. I love the stories in today’s papers about the final play in OT. Via the Herald:

“Well, I drew up a play and Paul says, ‘Coach, no, let’s not run that play,’ ” said Rivers. “He said, ‘Either I’m going to get to the basket or Kevin’s going to get a shot.’

“Sometimes a coach is a good listener, and on that one I was. Honestly Paul called that. I had a completely different play. It was a good thing because he saw it. And Kevin needed that shot. It was great. Kevin had shots all night; he just couldn’t make them. So it was great for him to make the shot.”

And the Globe’s version:

“Doc wanted to do some misdirection stuff,’’ said Kevin Garnett.

Pierce chimed in with a simple suggestion: Run a pick-and-roll for himself and Garnett.

Not quite Jimmy Chitwood telling Norman Dale he’ll make the last shot in the Indiana high school championship game, but still pretty cool.

    This same thing happened last year when the Cs were at Philly. I think they had been behind all game, & they had a chance to steal it in the end. Doc said he drew up a play & then was in the process of showing them a second play when the guys said, ‘no, let’s go with that first play.’ Paul got the ball in the final seconds (which I think is really smart), and Ray set a pick for Paul & then rolled to the corner. Both of Phillys guys stayed with Paul to stop the drive, & Paul passed it to Ray in the corner for a wide open game winning shot. I think Paul should have the ball in his hands & start the play just a couple of seconds earlier at the end of quarters. After that Philly game, Doc was smiling really big & gleefully praising ‘the guys’ for axing his 2nd play & going with the 1st. It is good that Doc is not some arrogant, I’m always right coach.
