Most Obnoxious Walk-Off
The Red Sox thrilled themselves and their fans with a never-ending stream of come-from-behind victories, and walk-off wins at Fenway Park. But the biggest walk-off of the year in Boston sports came when Celtics coach Doc Rivers bolted from what looked like a sinking ship in the Celtics while he still had three years left on his contract and headed to Los Angeles to run and coach the Clippers.
Rivers gave a litany of reasons why he left town – including the classic “It was just time...” and bristled at any suggestion he “bailed” on the Celtics. Eventually, Rivers admitted as much and got a well-deserved tribute and ovation upon his return to the Garden earlier this month.
All is forgiven when Boston is on top of the sports world.
