08:10 AM ET 09.18 | During a wide-ranging recent Q&A, Doc Rivers reserved perhaps his best lines for talking about the NBA's top teams. When pressed about what he thought about how the Lakers transformed their team into another super team, Doc joked about the Lakers running the Princeton with Kobe having to pass the ball more and how much more of a threat Bynum has been, not Dwight Howard. But kidding aside, Doc re-focused his sights on South Beach: "Honestly, I don't care about the Lakers ... I have my eye squarely on Miami. I come up to my players during the year -- they're in the facility now -- I bring up Miami every single day to them. I want them to hate them. I want them to beat them. That's gotta be our focus."
