Celtics coach Doc Rivers is not about to get fined talking about Greg Oden, Kevin Durant, or any non-Celtics player that could come to Boston as a free agent. Rivers wasn’t even sure he could comment on Magic center Dwight Howard.
“I got warned when I was with the Magic,” said Rivers. “Grant (Hill) only scored 51 against us and it was the year he was going to be a free agent. I just happened to say, ‘I love Grant Hill’, and the league called me and chastised me for saying that. I told them, ‘What should I say? Should I say he sucks?’ But they literally said I couldn’t say that.”
Rivers did talk extensively on Howard, and we’ll have that for you shortly.
