"You could have had free tickets if you hadn't have ran away."


"No good deed goes unpunished." That's quite a cynical, but sadly, often a true point of view. More often than not, we expect the bad version of events to unfold, and more and more it keeps us from doing the right thing. We don't think our act of kindness will be appreciated.

Doc Rivers was surprised by an unknown decent person from San Francisco but didn't get a chance to show his gratitude.

Shout out to the San Francisco person who at the corner today, I was walking down the street -- this is a true story -- I reached in my pocket to grab my phone, unbeknownst to me I dropped about two grand on the street, kept walking, didn't know it.

Maybe the person in question isn't a basketball fan and didn't recognize it was Doc, but even if you aren't a fan, tickets to the biggest comeback in NBA playoffs history would've been sweet.

Maybe they reach out after this and get to see the teams in Staples. No doubt Doc will come through.
