As said by Doc Rivers, head coach of the Boston Celtics after beating the New York Knicks last night.


The Celtics, got a halftime pep talk from another champion who wears green: Masters winner Trevor Immelman, who watched the game the day after collecting the green jacket.


â??He gave us a halftime speech and it obviously worked,â? Rivers said. â??It was great. Half the guys didnâ??t know him, but most of them did. But it was really cool. They gave him a nice standing ovation, shook his hand. We wanted everyone to touch what a champion felt like.â?Â
