Joining The Dennis & Callahan Show, Celtics coach Doc Rivers defused the rumors suggesting he would eventually be the coach of the Miami Heat.
"I really don't have any thoughts about that. As far as I'm concerned, I'm a Celtic and I plan on being that for a long time, as long as I'm coaching," Rivers said.
Asked if his decision whether or not to continue as the coach for the Celtics would have the similar amount of drama as took place at the conclusion of last season, Rivers said, "I hope not, but I don't know. I can honestly tell you, I've given it zero thought. I was asked about it a couple of times yesterday because I don't even know where this thing came from, but other than that I don't think about it at all."
Rivers did admit that times like Wednesday night -- when his son, Jerememiah, was playing for Indiana against Boston College just a few miles away from the Celtics' home game against the Blazers -- makes him contemplate what life would be like if he wasn't coaching.
"That goes on in your mind," Rivers said, "there's no doubt about that."
In regard to Glen Davis, Rivers talked about how he was more vocal in his support for the forward during the NBA Draft than usual because of his familiarity with the LSU product.
"On that one, I can say I was very involved," said Rivers, who also cited Leo Papile as being a big supporter of Davis. "I kept yelling, 'Baby!'"
Continuing on Davis, Rivers said, "He's a very smart player. He has great instincts. I do think people get lost in all the other stuff that comes with Baby. When you think about it, a lot of that is off the floor. On the floor, he does his job better and better every day."
Rivers noted that Davis is most likely closer to his talent ceiling than point guard Rajon Rondo. "Rondo still has a shot that he has to improve … If he improves it, he takes his game to a level we haven't seen in a long time."
