08:08 AM ET 05.17 | Doc Rivers hit the airwaves early Monday morning, and he managed to make a few headlines, not least of which was his take on the Kendrick Perkins trade, but there was more, including talk about coaching the Lakers. "Once you take a year off, you pretty much can coach anywhere. But that would have been strange." Q: Ethically, would you have a problem with that, them being the Celtics' archenemy? "I did have a problem with that if I had, let's say, did it this year. I had a philosophical, a big problem with that. If I had said, 'You know what, I'm going to let my contract expire at the end of this year,' and then go take actually any other team. But especially them and a couple of other teams. I couldn't do it."
