Doc Rivers is a veteran coach how many people look at as one of the best coaches in the league. After his suprise departure from the LA Clippers. The Sixers Quickly Targeted him and signed his to a 5 year deal. Doc is being held to high expectations this year and he knows it so here’s why I think he will live up to the expectations and Succeed with the 76ers.
- Coaching Experience
The 76ers young squad is building experience but a coach like Rivers has the experience this team needs in big time situations. His Playoff experience speaks for itself he has made the playoffs 6 of the last 7 years and has had some success when being there so I am very confident in his experience. Doc has also been a coach for 21 seasons so his experience is really good. He also has an NBA Championship to add to his resume’.
2. Highly Respected
Doc Rivers is highly respected by alot of coaches, owners, and players so I expect the 76ers players to do the same. Teams around the league will respect us more because of the respect teams have for Doc Rivers more than they have for Brett Brown as a coach. This young team will respect Doc Rivers and that will help the team Succeed in the future.
3. He is a good fit
Doc Rivers is a good fit for us in many ways. First off one of the things about this team is that we have alot of different personalities and Doc Rivers has dealt with that in Boston and LA with the Big 3 in Boston and the Lob City era in LA so he has dealt with alot of personality. Also the 76ers have a team with size and dominant big men he has also dealt that with Kevin Garnett, Deandre Jordan, and Blake Griffin so I am confident he can use Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons to their strengths
