Sixers head coach Doc Rivers spoke about the significance of Inauguration Day.
“For the young people, it signals that I can be involved, I can have a voice,” Rivers said. “I thought a lot of voiceless people over the last six months realized, ‘You know what? I do have a voice. And together, we have a voice.’ I think that’s what this inauguration will mean to everyone.”
