The Bobcats announced the firing of Sam Vincent yesterday. The former Celtics guard led the injury-riddled Bobcats to a 32-50 record. After learning about the firing, Rivers said, "You're kidding me," before expressing disappointment.
"That's our profession, I'll tell you," the Celtics coach said prior to shootaround yesterday morning at Philips Arena. "There are good days and bad days. That's bad days."
Rivers said the firing bothered him "a lot" because he didn't feel Vincent was given a chance.
"I'm flabbergasted that Sam's not there," he said. "This guy's been there one year with all the freaking injuries they have. I don't get that."
