He's back in the game. Doc Rivers had been waiting at home for the phone to ring to see if a new team would need his services. This week, the Milwaukee Bucks surprisingly decided to fire head man Adrian Griffin. The team has wasted no time in finding his replacement.

According to the latest Woj Bomb, the Bucks have decided to bring in Rivers to help the team push towards another NBA Finals title. Rivers is a man who needs no introduction, as fans are excited over this move for Milwaukee:

The Bucks are 30-13 on the year and are behind the Celtics at the top of the Eastern Conference standings. Firing Griffin seemed wild, but if the front office had Rivers in mind, then the move makes a bit more sense. We'll see how Doc can do leading Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co.
