The Los Angeles Clippers may not stand a competitive chance in their first-round series with the Golden State Warriors.
Doc drops $2K
But the trip to the Bay Area isn’t all bad for head coach Doc Rivers. Rivers told a story on Monday about almost losing $2,000 on the streets of San Francisco. But a good-natured stranger made sure Rivers wasn’t parted with what apparently accounts as walking-around money for the Clippers coach.
Stranger finds it
“Shoutout to the San Francisco person who at the corner today — I was walking down the street, true story,” Rivers said. “Reached into my pocket to grab my phone. Unbeknownst to me, dropped about two grand on the floor — on the street, kept walking, didn’t know it.
“The guy tapped me on the back and said, ‘That’s your money.’ I don’t know a lot of places that that would happen. But it happened today.”
The Good Samaritan apparently didn’t stick around to be lauded for his good deed.
Doesn’t stick around for a reward
Rivers said the man ran away before he had a chance to repay the altruistic act.
“Whoever that was, you could have had free tickets if you hadn’t ran away.”
While it appears the stranger wasn’t seeking a reward or accolades for his kind act, Rivers is looking out to make sure he at least knows he’s appreciated.
