Doc Rivers Statement on Jason Collins

Posted: Updated:

The following statement is from Boston Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers on Jason Collins' announcement today:

"I am extremely happy and proud of Jason Collins.  He's a pro's pro.  He is the consummate professional and he is one of my favorite "team" players I have ever coached.  If you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept.  It will be society who has to learn tolerance.  One of my favorite sayings is, I am who I am,  are whom we are,  can be what I want to be its not up to you, it's just me being me."
