Host Mike Felger asked Rivers whether he would be hurt if he is booed by fans who believe he walked out on the rebuilding Celtics.

“I don’t anticipate [being booed]. I'd be very surprised by it. If it happens, it happens,” Rivers said. “I’d be disappointed, of course, I’m a human being. Having said that, the way I look at it is I gave nine amazing years and I think the fans will see that more than anything else, and that’s a fact. I won a title here, Mike. There's a banner that has my name on it that's going to hang right above me when I walk out. This is all good.”
