Doc Rivers, Head Coach Of The Boston Celtics, Consults With My Wife During A Timeout
ANNIE: Doc, I feel crowded in this kitchen because there isn’t enough counter space.
DOC: You’ve just gotta stay focused. Maintain your intensity in the kitchen. You’re a cook—this is what you do. If you stay focused, the tiny kitchen can’t beat you.
ANNIE: But our fridge is small too, so there’s no room for leftovers.
DOC: Look, we all want to cook this recipe. But we’ve got to do it together. OK? We’re trying to do it ourselves. We’ve got to do it together.

DOC: Just stick to the game plan. Cook the recipe the way it’s drawn up. Percy’s going to try to draw you out of your recipe, out of your comfort zone. OK? Don’t let him. It’s your recipe. Just commit to it. You can make this vegan.
ANNIE: But there’s still not enough counter space.
DOC: Just maintain your intensity out there. Just stay focused. OK, bring it in. Energy, on three. Ready? One, two…
