Rivers: 'Glad Dwight is out of the East'
Celtics coach Doc Rivers was on ESPN Chicago Radio's Waddle and Sily show to discuss the blockbuster trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers. Here's what he had to say:
"I'm glad Dwight is out of the East," Rivers said. "The first thing you say is, 'We hope to see you in the finals' because we don't have to worry about the West part of it. It makes the Lakers pretty good. (Andrew) Bynum was pretty good before so it's not like they changed that much. I think Bynum is the better offensive player and I think Dwight Howard is a better athlete and a better defensive player."
