Doc Rivers Tells a Story About Getting Thrown Out of a Game on Purpose

This week, Doc Rivers revealed a hilarious story from his time coaching in Boston. The LA Clippers head coach revealed he once tried to get ejected from a late season game on purpose, so he could watch Tiger Woods play in the Masters.

The story was from years ago, back when Tiger Woods was competing for the green jacket. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge convinced Doc Rivers to get ejected from the game during halftime, so they could watch the competition together. Here’s a clip of Rivers telling the story.
