Playing career

Rivers was a McDonald's All-American for Proviso East High School in the Chicago metropolitan area.[1] Rivers represented the United States with the national team in the 1982 FIBA World Championship, in which he led the team to the silver medal, despite missing the last shot in the final, which could have given the title to his team. After his third season at Marquette University, Rivers was drafted in the second round (31st overall[2]) of the 1983 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He graduated from Marquette while completing course work as an NBA player. He spent the next seven seasons as a starter in Atlanta, assisting star Dominique Wilkins as the team found great regular-season success. He averaged a double-double for the 1986–87 season with 12.8 points and 10.0 assists per game. Rivers later spent one year as a starter for the Los Angeles Clippers and two more for the New York Knicks, before finishing his career as a player for the San Antonio Spurs from 1994 to 1996.

Coaching career Orlando Magic (1999–2003)

Rivers began his coaching career with the Orlando Magic in 1999, where he coached for more than four NBA seasons. Rivers won the Coach of the Year award in 2000 after his first year with the Magic. That season, he led the team that was picked to finish last in the league to a near playoff berth.

During the Magic's free agency spending spree in the summer of 2000, Doc Rivers had the opportunity to assemble the first "Big Three" team in the NBA, as the Magic were courting free agent Tim Duncan, who came close to signing with the Magic and teaming up with Grant Hill and Tracy McGrady. However, Tim Duncan re-signed with the San Antonio Spurs due to Rivers' strict policy of family members not being allowed to travel in the team's plane[3].

He made the post-season in his next three years as coach, but was fired in 2003 after a 1–10 start to the season.

Boston Celtics (2004–2013)

After spending a year working as a commentator for the NBA on ABC (calling the 2004 Finals with Al Michaels), he was hired by the Boston Celtics as their head coach in 2004. During his first years with the Celtics, he was criticized by many in the media for his coaching style, most vociferously by Bill Simmons, who in 2006 publicly called for Rivers to be fired in his columns.

As a result of the Celtics' 109–93 victory over the New York Knicks on January 21, 2008, Rivers, as the coach of the team with the best winning percentage in the Eastern Conference, earned the honor to coach the East for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans.[4] On June 17, 2008, Rivers won his first NBA Championship as a head coach after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.[5] The Celtics needed an NBA record 26 post-season games to win it. Rivers played for the team that held the previous record for most games played in a single post-season: the 1994 New York Knicks played 25 post-season games.

Rivers led the Celtics to the 2010 NBA Finals where they once again faced the Los Angeles Lakers and lost the series in seven games.

After deliberating between staying on the job and leaving the job and returning to spend more time with his family in Orlando, Rivers finally decided that he would honor the last year of his contract and return for the 2010–11 season.[6]

On May 13, 2011, after months of rumors that he would retire, ESPN reported that the Celtics and Rivers agreed upon a 5-year contract extension worth $35 million.[7][8]

On February 6, 2013, Rivers notched his 400th win with the Celtics in a 99–95 victory over the Toronto Raptors.[9]

Los Angeles Clippers (2013–present)

On June 25, 2013, the Los Angeles Clippers acquired Rivers from the Celtics for an unprotected 2015 NBA first round draft pick. He also became the senior vice president of basketball operations on the team.[10] In his first season as their head coach, Rivers led the Clippers to a franchise-record 57 wins, garnering the 3rd seed in the Western conference. The 2014 NBA playoffs first round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors was marred when TMZ released an audiotape containing racially insensitive remarks made by the then-Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Though there was a possibility of the Clippers boycotting the series, they would play on, holding a silent protest by leaving their shooting jerseys at center court and obscuring the Clippers logo on their warm-up shirts. Rivers himself stated that he would not return to the Clippers if Sterling remained as owner the following season. NBA commissioner Adam Silver responded to the controversy by banning Sterling for life and compelling him to sell the team. After the team was sold to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion on August 12, 2014, Rivers remained with the Clippers.[11]

On June 16, 2014, the Clippers promoted Rivers to president of basketball operations in conjunction with his continuing head coaching duties. Although Dave Wohl was hired as general manager, Rivers had the final say in basketball matters.[12] On August 27, 2014, he signed a new five-year contract with the Clippers.[13]

On January 16, 2015, Rivers became the first NBA coach to coach his own son, Austin Rivers until June 26, 2018 when he was traded to the Washington Wizards for Marcin Gortat.

On August 4, 2017, Rivers gave up his post as president of basketball operations. However, he continued to split responsibility for basketball matters with executive vice president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank.[14] On May 23, 2018, Rivers and the Clippers agreed to a contract extension.[15]

Rivers is the nephew of former NBA player Jim Brewer. He lives in Orlando, Florida, with his wife Kristen; they have four children.[2] His oldest son Jeremiah played basketball at Georgetown University and Indiana University,[16] and has played in the NBA D-League for the Maine Red Claws. His daughter Callie played volleyball for the University of Florida[17] and then played professionally in Puerto Rico, while his second-born son Austin played one year as a guard for Duke University before being drafted by the New Orleans Hornets with the 10th pick of the 2012 NBA draft, and joined his father on the Clippers in 2015. His youngest son, Spencer, is a guard who played for Winter Park High School and for UC Irvine.

Rivers is a cousin of former NBA guard Byron Irvin and former MLB outfielder Ken Singleton.[18]

Rivers was given his nickname of "Doc" by then-Marquette assistant coach Rick Majerus. Rivers attended a summer basketball camp wearing a "Dr. J" T-shirt. Majerus immediately called him "Doc" and the players at camp followed suit. The name has stuck ever since.[19]

Other work

Rivers is also currently a member of the National Advisory Board for Positive Coaching Alliance, a national non-profit organization that helps student-athletes and their coaches.[20] Rivers has appeared in several videos for this organization, all of which can be found on the group's YouTube channel.[21]

    Doc Rivers: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches (Basketball Biography & Leadership Books)
    Doc Rivers: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches (Basketball Biography & Leadership Books)
    Learn the Inspiring Story of the Los Angeles Clippers Head Coach, Doc Rivers! Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Doc Rivers: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches, you will learn the story of one of basketball's premier coaches, Doc Rivers. Doc Rivers is often lauded as one of the top coaches in the NBA, and with good reason. In his first season as the head coach of the Orlando Magic in 1999, Rivers took a team that was projected to finish last in the league to a near playoff birth. That "Heart and Hustle" Orlando Magic team would put Doc Rivers on the map. Since that time, Doc has remained one of the most sought after coaches around the league. His most notable success as a coach came in 2008, as he led the Boston Celtics to their first championship since 1986. There are a number of key leadership lessons that can be learned from Doc Rivers, such as developing player relationships, motivating by challenging, and implementing a consistent system. Whether you're a basketball player or a coach looking for inspiration, this book will help you discover the incredible story of Doc Rivers and the many leadership lessons that can be learned from studying his success. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Background Coaching Career with the Magic, Celtics, and Clippers What Makes Doc Rivers a Good Leader How Doc Rivers Maximizes Player Talent Doc Rivers' System Key Takeaways Conclusion and Doc Rivers' Legacy An excerpt from the book: NBA coaches are known for being the best basketball strategists in the entire world of professional sports. No coach gets to the NBA if he has not mastered the basic X's and O's of basketball. However, a sound strategy is not the only way a coach succeeds in the NBA. A lot of other factors come into play. An NBA head coach should be able to lead his team through philosophies and other intangibles. Then there is also how the coach manages his rotations and maximizes his players' talents. The financial aspect of managing contracts is also one of the more challenging aspects of coaching in the NBA among others. If anything, strategy might be the easier part of being a head coach in the NBA because there are several more other factors he has to take into consideration. Most head coaches would sometimes delegate the X's and O's to their assistants so as to focus on the other factors of being the primary voice of leadership of the team. A coach may be the brightest mind as far as strategy is considered but may fail in the other aspects that truly make him great. One of the harder parts of being a head coach is how to handle the sheer amount of talent he has on his roster. There those that have not been blessed with an All-Star or two on his team. Such coaches rely more on team play and role delegation rather than on how a particular player can take control at any time. There are those that have multiple All-Stars that play well with each other and off one another to the point that chemistry no longer becomes an issue. The difficulty lies in handling one or more transcendent superstars on the team.

    Shark River (A Doc Ford Novel Book 8)
    Shark River (A Doc Ford Novel Book 8)
    The past comes disconcertingly alive for Doc Ford, in a series that continues to grow in popularity and acclaim.Randy Wayne White's Ten Thousand Islands was "one of the most satisfying thrillers in recent memory" wrote the Chicago Tribune, and the starred review in Publishers Weekly said, "Of all the writers [in] the Florida mayhem boom, only White can claim to have created a series hero to match Hemingway's memorable outdoorsmen and John D. MacDonald's much-missed Travis McGee." And now White has created his most electrifying novel yet.On a working vacation to Guava Key, marine biologist Doc Ford notices two female joggers who follow the same route at the same time every day. He can't help thinking how easy it would be for a predator to become aware of them, too. As it turns out, he isn't the only one. There seem to be more and more predators these days.Forced to step in, Ford finds himself involved in a story of intrigue and revenge that becomes more dangerous with every turn-and some of them hit pretty close to home. Add to that a Bahamian relative he never knew he had, a letter leading to a treasure that may or may not exist, and some past history that becomes very alarmingly present, and his life has suddenly become very complicated. Not to mention the prospect of his death. . . .Filled with crackling power and atmosphere, and some of the best suspense characters in fiction, Shark River is a triumph of storytelling.

    Hundreds of thousands of PROPLUGS are in use today to protect children. After ventilation tube operations on the ears, shampoo and soap lower surface tension and allow dirty water to pass through ventilation tubes, infecting the middle ear. PROPLUGS help prevent this from occurring. Since 1977, when DOC'S PROPLUGS were first created, their patented design has been recognized by professionals and patients alike as having the most features in respect to comfort and protection.
