Video: Celtics Honor Doc Rivers in his Return

If anyone wondered whether the Boston faithful might boo Doc Rivers for forcing a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers (was it just me?), last night laid those doubts to rest. When the timeout before the second quarter arrived, the Boston Celtics honored Doc Rivers with a special tribute video covering his nine years with the franchise that saw him usher in the Big Three Era, hoist the 2008 NBA Larry O’Brien trophy, and win over 400 games as a Celtics coach, third most in franchise history.

The video inspired a standing ovation from TD Garden crowd, who were on their feet before Rivers even looked up from his clipboard to see his own tribute. It was the second standing O of the night for Rivers, who was greeted to raucous applause, cheers, and handshakes galore when he walked out of the visitor’s tunnel.

You can see the video tribute that the Celtics put together in honor of Doc after the jump.
