It's unfortunate Doc Rivers is part of 2 major chokes done by the Clippers (not counting Orlando Magic). Many people are going to hold his feet to the fire, but when you look at the videos of these disappointments, it's mainly the players not hitting open shots nor playing good defense. Kawhi and PG are going to have a serious stain on their resumes for this series. They played horrible for a game 7. Even PG's defense was terrible at times. That's why I'm always hesitant in ranking PG over Jimmy despite his better 3 pt shooting. Kawhi shouldn't have overlook the chemistry he had with the Raptors in order to have the convenience in LA.
It always amazes me when you see a star player like Kawhi leave a great situation for a supposedly better one. It is true that he left SA and still won with TOR. But the Spurs were falling apart anyway, while TOR still had plenty left in the tank, narrowly losing a 7 game series to BOS. Kawhi might be chasing another ring the rest of his career, whereas if he stayed in TOR, they almost definitely would have gotten by BOS and be facing MIA for a chance to go to another finals.
