Fans like to dog on Austin Rivers, who has become a useful NBA player, for the nepotism shown by his father, Doc, early in his career.
Rivers is now in his seventh NBA season, and is no longer coached by his pops. Still, it’s probably best not to confront Rivers about Doc, as was evidenced when the Houston Rockets guard stopped to respond to a fan in the tunnel this week.
As Rivers walked by a fan yelled out, “Your dad sucks at coaching!”
Rivers then responded by stepping directly up to the fan.
Don’t be so insecure when you see NBA players in person. It’s embarrassing.
