Kawhi me a Rivers.

ClipsFan... I feel you, bro. You rep hard for your team. You and other Clippers long-time fans (all 3 of them) deserve much better. You actually saw it coming. Sad.

Might as well went to Reggie at that point. No JJ Redick plays ran for Shamet like we did last season. Pat Patterson glued to the bench. What in the hell did we sign Noah for? No adjustments, just favorites year in and year out. Hell we thought he was done after the 3-1 choke against Houston four years ago.


This. What makes it even worse is that he admitted afterwards that "some players," which absolutely included Lou and Harrell, were in such poor shape that they had to ask out of the game. How can you possibly be trotting out these two guys in crucial playoff minutes when you know they're not in shape and that all the numbers say they're hurting you.


how are you not in good shape when you're paid millions to do that? May be spending more time in the gym than a strip club would've helped.

This is so disappointing. I imagine he fails next year then he’s gone for sure.

I'm moving to McKinney or Plano next summer. I legit may do it. It's quite tempting. Luka is my favorite player already and I've been riding with KP since he was drafted.

Dude if you're moving to Texas just do it lol. It's gonna be so worth it man.


It's seriously a consideration. If it happens I'll ask Howard to change my name to Mavsfansince2020

If he isn't then Ballmer has no idea what he's doing and Doc is getting by only because he was a good advisor for Ballmer when he bought the team. I don't know of any other coach that has underachieved with more assets at his disposal than Doc. If you lose up 3-1 in the west semis once that is probably already grounds for dismissal. Twice? And we know it's not the talent or the roster. He's a terrible coach when it comes to X's and O's. The 4th quarter yesterday was a coaching abomination.

Next year, the clippers will not be better than Boston, Miami or the nuggets. And that's not even looking for the unknowns such as KD and the nets. Just mentioning the knowns of this year. DOC needs to be held fully responsible

OMG and I was saying that the silver lining, the only solace, to going out in such a weak manner would be that Doc is finally gone. Dude doesn't deserve any more chances. We need a new look and the west is going to continue to get stronger, while Clips will continue to roll out the same lack of an offensive scheme, lack of plays and hero ball. This is the definition of wack and insanity combined.

Doc has a ring and two finals appearances under his belt. The real question is how does dantoni continue to get jobs?


D'Antoni is a much better coach than Doc.

The only reason Doc has that ring is that he was fortunate enough to coach a super team.


Yep and he underachieved with just 1 ring and for that ring his super team got pushed to 7 in the first round by mediocre Atlanta and also by Lebron and the one man Cavs. They won the title despite Doc. 2008 Boston actually played the most playoff games in NBA history. Doc sucks. I am glad that people are finally starting to see it.

They had 3 veteran all-stars and were playing during a transitional era without any other super teams to get in their way. Anyone would have won with that roster.

You have no proof that Dantoni would have won. Doc did win and that's the difference.


Larry Coker won a national title at Miami. Winning a title as a coach doesn't automatically mean that you are good. Doc and Larry Coker both suck. There is no way that 08 Boston squad should have gotten pushed to 7 games in the first round by Atlanta and pushed to 7 in the 2nd round by Cleveland. That's such garbage coaching.

https://www.theringer.com/nba/2020/9/16/21439315/los-angeles-clippers-game-7-kawhi-leonard

But now Rivers has been the head coach of three teams that have blown a 3-1 lead. Yes, you read that right: three blown 3-1 leads. There have been only 13 of those in NBA history. He’s also coached three teams that have blown 3-2 leads. The losses are as follows:

2003 Round 1, Magic blow a 3-1 lead to Pistons
2009 Round 2, Celtics blow a 3-2 lead to Magic
2010 NBA Finals, Celtics blow a 3-2 lead to Lakers
2012 East finals, Celtics blow a 3-2 lead to Heat
2015 Round 2, Clippers blow a 3-1 lead to Rockets
2020 Round 2, Clippers blow a 3-1 lead to Nuggets


Blowing leads is a trend for Rivers, and that’s often due to a lack of adjustments. Why wouldn’t Williams’s minutes dwindle when he couldn’t stop anyone? How long are you going to stick with Harrell when he looks lost in the pick-and-roll? Why continue to double Nikola Jokic as the Nuggets pick them apart time and time again? He could’ve put Kawhi on Jokic sooner. He could’ve tried Green or Morris at center with perimeter-oriented lineups and played small ball, just like we’ve seen virtually every other team in the semifinals do at some point. He could’ve made a tough call. But Doc’s inaction led to a blown series lead. For the sixth time.


Can't say I'm unhappy with their decision... makes me smile.

Lol at people blaming the coach.

It is hard to establish a system with no playmakers and with your main stars being an iso player (Kawhi) and a glorified 3+D guy (George). Just like it was hard to build a system around an iso guy (Durant) and a low bb iq playmaker (Westbrook). Just like Stevens couldnt build a good system with Kyrie. Just like the Nets will also run into the same issue if they dont get someone to run the offense. Just like the Sixers got swept because they have no perimeter guy to playmake. Its not the coach but the roster construction.

In July 2019, I posted a number of times that players make bad GMs when they try to be, and Leonard played the whole thing badly. So if your saying Leonard doesn't make a good GM, you're a year late.

Doc had the Point God on his team for 4 years and still failed in the playoffs every year.
