I’ve been here nine years. For me, this was it. This is it for me as far as a city. That doesn’t mean someday I won’t get fired or get old or retire and come back like Phil Jackson may do, but this will never get out of you — this city, this place — and I think a lot of people who have been here feel that way.
You can’t take the city out of the man, but you can take the man out of the city – at least for $3 million, that is. On July 26, not long after Celtics general manager Danny Ainge traded him to the Los Angeles Clippers for a first round pick, Doc Rivers sold his home in Boston for $3 million, according to public records and WEEI.
Sources close to Rivers say his luxury condo was in need of renovation, but Rivers wanted no part of the rebuilding process.
The luxury condo, located at the Four Seasons on Boylston Street, had more bathrooms (2.5) than bedrooms (2) and more square footage (1,801) than five New York City “apartments” combined (no, I’m not at all a bitter, jaded New Yorker). Rivers originally bought the apartment for $2.2 million in 2011.
So, to recap:
2 preseason tickets to see the Celtics play KG, Paul Pierce, and the Brooklyn Nets: $167.80
4 beers, Nacho Grande, cup o’ clam chowdah, personal pan pizza: $54.60
1 2 7 rounds at The Greatest Bar for you and your six new friends you met at the game: $336.78
