Doc Rivers Steals Signs Too

New, comments

Bill Doyle of the Telegram reports (hat tip BSMW):

NBA point guards do their best to overhear opposing play calls and relay them to their own benches so their teams can log them and be better prepared to defend them.

"You have a chance of knowing what they’re running before they run it," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said yesterday after practice at HealthPoint. "That doesn’t mean you’re going to stop it, but at least you have an idea of what they’re doing."

The fact that Rajon Rondo is able to both relay opposing plays and defend them is an indication of how far he’s come in only his second year in the league.

Obviously the big difference between this and Spygate is the fact that the Pats used a video camera and Doc is using a point guard.  I just thought this was funny.
