Report: 76ers Worked to Regain Control of Doc Rivers' Twitter Account after It Was Hacked


Doc Rivers, the head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, reportedly had his Twitter account hacked before the team was able to take back control.

A buddy alerted Rivers to "bizarre activity" on his account, including contentious likes, which the Sixers were able to reverse, according to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

The New York Post's Ryan Glasspiegel reports that Rivers' account liked a number of tweets with "adult material."

The third season of Rivers' tenure in Philadelphia and his 24th overall as an NBA head coach are about to begin for the 60-year-old.

In 1,778 regular-season games, Rivers, who has coached the Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, and Orlando Magic in the past,

has compiled a 1,043-735 record. The fact that Rivers' teams have advanced to the postseason in 18 of his 23 seasons as head

coach, including 14 of the most recent 15, is perhaps the most impressive. His greatest achievement was with the Boston Celtics,

where he twice guided them to the NBA Finals and won a title in 2008. The Sixers have gone 100-54 and made the playoffs

twice in his first two seasons with the team, but they have never advanced past the second round.
