Hank Raymonds, Rivers’ coach at Marquette, called before nearly every game until his death in 2010. Rick Majerus, a Marquette assistant under Raymonds, was another frequent caller until his death two years later. Chuck Daly, the coach Rivers succeeded in Orlando, was a trusted friend, as remains Pat Riley, who’d coached Rivers in New York. He learned from Larry Brown, his coach with the Clippers. Mike Fratello, Rivers’ coach in Atlanta during his playing career, kept in touch then as he does now.
