Rivers went into the locker room and told his Celtics not to back for the trip to Miami, but to add clothes so they could head straight to Oklahoma City for the start of the NBA finals Tuesday

it's the right button to press with these guys. they know whats at stake. nothing left to do but execute.

But if they don't pack for OKC would they go back to boston if they beat the heat just to get clothes? It only makes sense. If game 7 was in boston then I would expect the heat to do the same thing.

Both teams will likely have things packed and ready to head to OKC.

So what?

Does Rivers know something that only David Stern is privy to?

Either way, Miami is a great place to spend your vacation.

Yeah this should be a thread.

What do you want Doc to say? "Pack your away jerseys only, we will be back Sunday. Don't worry we will get pizza and ice cream for the flight back"

If I was on the Celtics, you're telling me Doc would take me out to pizza and ice cream after the game? :jumpy:

I would be pretty surprised if Spolestra isnt telling the heat the same exact thing, more or less.

He would probably guilt everyone and no one would eat anything the whole way back. Just let it sit there and get cold.

No Spoelstra is probably on wikipedia still trying to figure out what a coach is.

If the Heat coach had said same thing, the vitriol around here and the media will be alrming......but since it's the Celtics coach, it's ok. ;)

This really isn't a surprise. Only think surprising is the reaction people are having to it.

I'm pretty positive this is a complete misquote from NBC. As you can see in the article, there are no direct quotes relating to what Doc said. In reports from ESPN's Chris Forsberg, he tweeted that Doc's message was "pack for a week" and that Keyon Dooling said it was "self explanatory".

I don't believe Doc ever said "pack for OKC", although it sounds like that's what he was indirectly hinting at.

*Update: It seems NBC did get it wrong, as here is ESPN:


"They're not just going to pack for [Game 7]," Rivers said of his team. "They're going to bring suits for Tuesday and they're going to bring suits for Thursday. And that's the way we're going to plan to do it."


A message on the Celtics' dry erase board reminded players of an afternoon flight with the note, "Pack for a week," scrawled below it.

"We're packing for a week -- it's self-explanatory," said Keyon Dooling. "That's how we feel about it. It's not like we lost confidence or we're scared to go in Miami. We're going to be in Miami, we're going to be ready to play."

This shouldn't have been made public to the media. Should have kept it to himself. I'm pretty sure the Heat players & staff have heard of Doc saying this, and it most likely would get them fired up even more. If Doc Rivers is trying to play mind games with Miami, he isn't doing too good of a job. Just like Spoelstra's, Rivers' job is at stake if the Celtics lose game 7.
