Doc Rivers plans to let Paul Pierce retire as a member of the Boston Celtics if the star decides to end his distinguished career this summer. “If Paul decides to retire then we’re going to make sure that Boston picks him up for one day and he retires a Celtic because that’s what he should retire as,” Rivers said during an episode of The Vertical podcast with Adrian Wojnarowski, which was released early Thursday. “So we have all that in place. We just don’t know what he’s going to do.”

“Every coach, and I say this whenever I speak at clinics, should have had the right to coach Kevin for one minute,” Rivers added. “It would have made their lives better. It would have made them better coaches because when you can get on him — and I got on him — and he says yes sir, I’m sorry, my fault. Some of the times later when I watched I may have been wrong. He still took it. It makes your job really easy.”
