Celtics coach Doc Rivers will be mic’d up for tonight’s nationally-televised broadcast. Rivers will be interviewed live during tonight’s game. All coaches will be mic’d up at some point this season, but this is the first time for Rivers. Rivers will also wear a microphone for Friday’s game against the Bulls.
A Celtics official said he wasn’t sure if any Celtics players would wear a microphone tonight. There will be a robotic camera in the Celtics locker room tonight to shoot extra footage.
UPDATE (5:38 p.m.) I just got a glimpse of the robot-cam in the Celtics locker room. It’s hanging from the ceiling in the corner closest to the door.
“What the heck is that?” yelled Brian Scalabrine when he walked in.
Kevin Garnett had a strong reaction to the camera as well, but this is a family show.
