Rivers doesn't anticipate boos in Boston

On the eve of his first game in Boston since leaving the Celtics, Clippers coach Doc Rivers on Tuesday was a call-in guest on the Felger and Mazz show on 98.5 The Sports Hub.

Host Mike Felger asked Rivers whether he would be hurt if he is booed by fans who believe he walked out on the rebuilding Celtics.

“I don’t anticipate [being booed]. I'd be very surprised by it. If it happens, it happens,” Rivers said. “I’d be disappointed, of course, I’m a human being. Having said that, the way I look at it is I gave nine amazing years and I think the fans will see that more than anything else, and that’s a fact. I won a title here, Mike. There's a banner that has my name on it that's going to hang right above me when I walk out. This is all good.”
