Nobody in golf moves the needle like Tiger Woods. Nobody.

Just yesterday, LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers shared a fantastic story from when he was coaching the Boston Celtics.

With roughly four games left in one season and the playoffs already locked up, Celtics general manager and President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge told Rivers to get thrown out of a game against the Miami Heat so he could go back to the locker room with Ainge to watch Tiger make a Masters run.

We'll let Rivers take it from there...

Now how good is that?
