Doc Rivers is one of the most highly respected coaches in the NBA. So when he talks about a player's potential or league rules, people usually listen.
In speaking with reporters before Wednesday night's game against the Utah Jazz, Rivers spent a few minutes discussing his son and NBA hopeful Austin Rivers.
Doc reflected a bit on the process and ultimately put his full support behind Austin's decision, which was announced on Monday.
The Celtics coach also addressed the topic of the NBA's one-and-done rule, expressing his opinion that the restriction has no bearing on a player's ability to play in the league.
