Doc Rivers has once again found himself at the helm of a super team, this time on the opposite coast. Over ten years after his first championship run in Boston, he'll have an opportunity to repeat the feat with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George as his stars.

Time may have passed, but Doc certainly hasn't changed. That much was made clear when he had the following to say about Ricky Rubio. If you don't care for foul language, please exit your browser.

A pretty good way to sum up Rubio's game. He has to be crafty as a below-average shooter in this shooting-obsessed league. He does a good enough job doing so that the Suns signed him to a hefty three-year, $51 million contract. He's been good so far in Phoenix, and clearly has the respect of Doc Rivers.
