letters | Celtics legends depart

In quitting, Rivers sets a bad example

ONCE AGAIN the Globe shows its win-at-any-cost mentality in praise of an undeserving local celebrity (“Ego manager extraordinaire,” Editorial, June 25). Rather than applaud Doc Rivers’ “classy work ethic” and his having brought “one more banner to the rafters,” why not comment on his breach of ethics and abandonment of his obligations to the Celtics organization?

Rivers asked for and received a five-year contract knowing full well the challenges that awaited his aging team. But something easier came along, and this wonderful role model jumped, leaving in his wake many who supported and trusted him.

Ethics, huh?
