In 18 years as an NBA player, Grant Hill has seen every shape and style of coach. He was reunited, briefly, with one of his former coaches on Sunday afternoon.
Doc Rivers, whose Celtics handed Hill and the Los Angeles Clippers a 106-104 defeat, coached Hill for three-plus seasons in Orlando. Although Hill’s time with the Magic was marred by injuries and Rivers’ final season with the team ended 11 games into the 2003-04 season, the seven-time All-Star came away with an appreciation for Rivers.
“He’s just a good man,” Hill said. “He’s come up here and had some success, and you’re happy for him to be able to establish himself as one of the better coaches in the league.”
It was been a while since Hill played for Rivers, but the 40-year-old forward looked back on the things that earned Rivers respect in the Magic locker room at the beginning of the last decade.
“He’s been a player,” Hill said. “He knows what it’s like to lace ‘em up. He’s a great communicator. He holds you accountab

Some good stuff. Hilarious that a team with Chris Paul on it complains about flops. The refs missed stuff both ways so saying they were playing 5 on 8 didn't fly. Just listen to a replay of Tommy last night saying how much he hates Eli Roe. For thinking the Celtics are terrible they sure were coveting KG and PP and Doc pretty hard. And I'm starting to think...
Despite Sporting News’ report Sunday that the Los Angeles Clippers were making a push for 17-year veteran Kevin Garnett, follow up reports suggest that nothing is imminent. Like we’ve said before, Garnett is one of four players (Kobe, Duncan, Nowitzki) with a no-trade clause, meaning he has to approve any trade including him, making a move to the Clippers even more unlikely....
