Doc Rivers Reuters

“I thought we were going to get Gasol, Bynum and Kobe. But they turned down the second-round draft pick we offered.”

— Celtics coach Doc Rivers, joking about the insanity of the rumors around the trade deadline. Thing is, you know somebody tried to work this out on the trade machine.

    Great comment by Doc..That said, I am not sure how happy Doc will be come this offseason knowing his team made no deals and will have some of its best (and oldest) players likely leaving with no return. He cannot bank on free agency to fill that many gaps with comparable talent.

    Good one Doc!

    Clearly, a coach’s top ten quote of the year.

    But, don’t forget the consolation prize “Derik Fischer” is still up for grabs.
