In a summer that will be full of questions and speculation, it’s good to know that someone will answer the speculation about where they’ll be next season. Doc Rivers did just that before last night’s Eastern Conference Finals game. Now, if we can just get everyone else to follow suit.
For all the conspiracy theorists who thought Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers may head back to his hometown to coach the Chicago Bulls next season — think again.
The Proviso East alum chuckled when asked about the latest round of speculation that had him landing in Chicago once the season ends.
“I’m not even going to answer that one,” Rivers said before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. “It’s funny, I told someone today that’s the first time I’ve heard about it. I said ‘I’m either going to be in Boston or home’. And one guy said, ‘Well, home is Chicago or wherever else.’ I said, ‘That’s just stupid talk.’ I think that’s just ridiculous.”
