If you say so... I can say as the Clippers were exiting the bubble, the narrative was Doc would be back... but as teams tend to do they let the emotions settle and looked at things with less emotion and decided to fire Doc -- and Kawhi ABSOLUTELY has that kind of juice.
@stevekylerNBA Are you saying that everyone in the"Clippers equation" was saying that Doc was safe? With all due respect it wasn't surprising.I saw it coming&I'm a television GM. Kawhi's guy? Kawhi doesn't have that kind of juice. He's a great player w zero personality or leadership ability.
RT @presidual: This passage is the most critical part of the excellent @ramonashelburne / @NotoriousOHM article on the Clippers and Doc Rivers. Steve Ballmer asked the right questions, and the process seemed sound, fair, and thoughtful, even if the outcome was stunning. https://t.co/8FhTouG4f5 https://t.co/XtLRjYURkN
As someone currently at a Disney property, this especially sad news. The staff here has been so kind to all of us. Hoping for the best.
If you ask me, I say the LA Clippers should hire Ty Lue as next head coach. This old ESPN The Mag story of mine shows what makes him special. Much of it goes back to Mexico, Mo., Ty's hometown, and Gary "Rough Man" Jackson's barbershop... (1 of 3) https://t.co/PYkKloXq5A
This is a brilliant read on what's going on inside the Clippers.
