Lets be serious. Doc Rivers didnt sign a 5 year contract extension back in 2011 to watch the Big 3 get old and slowly die right before his eyes.
The dude knew that his son, Austin Rivers, was going to only play one year of college basketball. And Doc probably figured Austin would go pretty low in the first round and that the Celtics would draft him and he would get to watch his son turn into a superstar in this league right before his eyes.
But as we all know, life sucks and doesnt always go the way you plan. According to ESPNBoston, the Celtics were aggressively trying to trade up to get Austin and even that didnt work.
Doc Rivers is probably pissed right now that he signed that extension. I guarantee he wouldnt have singed it if he knew the Celtics werent going to get Austin.
