There was some star power down on the field joining the Patriots before Monday Night Football. Doc Rivers chatted up Bill Belichick, while Bob Kraft was hanging out with Mark Wahlberg and his son out on the field during the pregame ceremonies. The Celtics have two days off before playing the Magic at TD Garden, so the Boston head coach had some time to travel down to Foxboro to take in a game. The Boston-bred Wahlberg is a known Boston sports fan. He’s also filmed a few of his movies in the area, including Ted, The Fighter and The Departed. Check out Rivers and Wahlberg in the pictures below.   Photos via Twitter/@Patriots

Poll: Who is the better coach, Doc Rivers or Bill Belichick?

What a riveting interview! It's great the relationship that the coaches of the Celtics and Patriots have. One thing I always bring up is how Belichick called Rivers for his opinion on Brandon Spikes before drafting him, since Spikes was dating Rivers' daughter. Needless to say, that worked out pretty well. Be sure to check out PatriotsLife for the best coverage of the...
