    Doc voted most popular coach

    According to a SI poll, Doc Rivers is the most popular coach in the league (among the players). See this link: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1197357/1/index.htm This helps offset some of the negative issues associated with Boston climate and it not being a media market and will help as we recruit free agents. I can see why players like him. He calls it like it is, is a good motivator, is a good teacher to young players (even if he won't play them until they learn to do what he asks). Our vets just swear by him. Thoughts?

    More accurately: Doc voted coach players most want to play for! Sorry for reporting it inaccurately the first time.

    Never heard a player say anything bad about him.  In my business that usually means he doesn't get on them.  Obviously thats not the case with people other than the big 4.

    I am not a team insider but word is that he is very candid with them in private and he clearly gets on the team, but never pointed at one player. Clearly they get the message without him embarrassing an individual like Van Gundy does.

    You mean it wasn't Mike Brown? I thought for sure he would win it this time. Oh who am I kidding.

    Players don't mind if you tell it like it is - just don't tell the whole world.  I'm sure that is what he does - gets on them in private, and "sugarcoats" it to the rest of us.  It's not really OUR team, anyway...................

    Most popular coach doesnt do it for me. Heck, I remember in grade school we had a teacher everyone wanted.. She was by far the most popular because she was the most leinent..gave less homework.. easier to get over on and even when caught was a pushover... get the picture?

    Also, dont say Doc doesnt point the finger or embarrass anyone. What was the name of that center we got back in the Perk trade that DOc routinely humiliated on the court?

    That's not what I told you.  I told you that veterans like KG and Pierce and Company need to motivate themselves and they don't need to coach to motivate them.

    Its still Doc's job, especially for young guys......but our Vets motivate themselves.  Still believe that.  The two are not mutually exclusive.
