Clippers' Doc Rivers -- My Son Won't Get Special Treatment ... Now That He's On My Team

EXCLUSIVE


L.A. Clippers President Doc Rivers says the NBA ain't Little League ... telling TMZ Sports his son Austin Rivers won't be treated ANY DIFFERENTLY now that he'll be joining his team. 

FYI -- The Clippers acquired the 22-year-old in a 3-team trade that went through on Thursday. 

Hours after the deal, we saw Doc leaving a power dinner with Donald Trump at Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood and asked him if he was worried that the players thinking Austin will get special treatment because of their relationship. 

Rivers is adamant he'll treat Austin just the same as everyone else -- not easier, not harder. 

A father has never coached a son in the NBA before -- so the minute Austin takes the court, he'll be making history.

Pretty cool, right?
