Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers joined the show to talk about his offseason and more.

Rivers said that Garnett could have gotten more money, but wanted to help the team. Rivers explained that he hugged KG at the end of the season and it looked like a good-bye hug, but it wasn’t at all. He was just emotional because of how many times they had been at the brink.

Rivers said that he doesn’t have a feel for what Ray Allen is going to do. But he said that he talked to Allen yesterday and plans to talk to him every day.

Dan asked Rivers what changed with LeBron James this season. Rivers said that LeBron became more comfortable leading, and Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh adjusted to their roles.

“Last year [LeBron] didn’t know if he should be the leader,” Rivers said. “I almost thought they got in the way of each other last year.”

Dan also asked Rivers how close they were to trading Rajon Rondo. Rivers said not close. He said the one thing they discussed was the Chris Paul deal, but that wasn’t that close.

“Of all the guys who grew last year, I thought Rondo grew the most,” Rivers said. And Rivers said that’s part of the reason KG decided to come back, because he’s OK being in a support role to his point guard.

Dan asked Rivers if the Celtics would have been interested in drafting his son Austin. Rivers said that Danny Ainge was very interested in Austin. “He was trying to sell Austin on me, which is very interesting,” Rivers said.
