However, now that he's officially been introduced as the Philadelphia 76ers head coach, Rivers says he's alright with being called Glenn out of respect to franchise icon Julius Erving - "Dr. J."

“I’m Glenn with you and I’m fine with that, because I actually agree with that,” Rivers told broadcaster Marc Zumoff on Monday. “There’s only one Doc in town.”

Report: Clips disagreed with Rivers playing Harrell over Zubac in playoffs

  Report: Clips disagreed with Rivers playing Harrell over Zubac in playoffs A disagreement over postseason playing time may have contributed to the Los Angeles Clippers' shocking decision to part ways with head coach Doc Rivers. The organization didn't agree with Rivers playing Montrezl Harrell over fellow center Ivica Zubac during the Clippers' most recent playoff run, The Athletic's Jovan Buha reports. Although Harrell won the 2019-20 Sixth Man of the Year award, the Clippers owned a minus-30.1 net rating when he shared the court with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard this postseason, Buha notes. However, Los Angeles recorded a team-best 11.1 net rating when Zubac was paired with the two stars.

It remains to be seen whether he plans to embrace "Glenn" on a full-time basis or if the exception extends only to NBC Sports Philadelphia broadcasts, where Zumoff has long referred to Rivers by his birth name.

Rivers explained he first became known as "Doc" in high school after he caught the eye of former Marquette coach Al McGuire while wearing a Dr. J T-shirt at a basketball camp.

"At the end of the week, the Milwaukee Bucks came in to play a basketball game in front of the campers, and they only had nine players and they needed a 10th," Rivers recalled. "And Al McGuire walks up to the stands ... and he starts yelling for 'Doc.' He's pointing at me, but my name's Glenn. And he keeps saying, 'Doc, come down.' Finally, I realize 'Doc' was me.

"I walk down, I got the great opportunity to play with the Milwaukee Bucks. I actually got a steal and a dunk. And all the kids start yelling, ‘Doc, Doc.’ From that day on, that’s been my name.”
