Doc Rivers on Player Empowerment, Growing Up the Son of a Chicago Cop, Where Our Country Is Going, and the NBA's Return

Steve and Pete are joined by Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers to talk about how players balance being an athlete with their role as role models and icons, growing up in Chicago in the '60s and '70s as the son of a police officer, and the importance of voting in the upcoming election. Later, they discuss how promoting and facilitating openness in the locker room is essential to bringing a team together, as well as the return of the NBA season and preparing for the unusual circumstances of playing in Orlando.
