There’s class, and then there’s Doc Rivers.Rivers has been considered a candidate to replace Mike Krzyzewski on the Team USA sideline, and Rivers has said he would be honored to be named Coach K’s successor. However, he doesn’t think he’s the best man for the job. (Boston Herald)“There’s no doubt,” said Rivers of his peer. “There’s just no doubt. To me, there should be no doubt at all.“It shouldn’t be me. It really shouldn’t be. It should be Pop. Forget me. Take me out of the equation. I really think it should be (Gregg) Popovich.”“He’s done it,” he said. “He’s won four titles. He’s done everything. He’s a winner, and he knows how to coach great players. He should be it.”There is also the fact that Popovich, who spent five years in the Air Force, has paid dues by twice being an assistant coach for the national team.“He’s served more than his time,” said Rivers. “He’s served his country. He’s done everything that should be required, and he should be it. He deserves it.”It’s incredibly hard not to like Doc Rivers, no?
