Doc rivers 2.0 lol

To

I mean what is the point?? Lol

Doc wasn't fired, he quit.
he quit because he was about to be fired

Everyone knows That

You're wrong.  He quite because it became a toxic work environment.  Maybe you would want to work with the sleazeball that cheated on your daughter and impregnated another woman, most people would not.

Doc showed great character sticking it out for the season, and did the right thing for the team by doing so, but I have no doubts he was blind-sided when Kawhi made it known he would only come if they brought in a star and the only star he could convince to come was Paul George.

People pretending this wasn't the real reason have their heads in the sand.
You really do go to the greatest of lengths to defend Rivers, even though he was obviously and rightfully going to be fired, because he fails as a coach much more often than he succeeds

Jeez, hold a grudge much? Seems like it's been long enough now that people could let go of the bitterness he left us.

Doc clearly went to management and asked out because it was no longer a desirable job. That is what he does. He did the same thing here. The Clippers being willing to oblige is nothing more than doing right by a guy who did a lot for that franchise. They should have played hard ball like Danny and got a pick for him. He steered them through the Sterling fiasco. He made them a perennial playoff team. He put them in a position to where they could be desirable enough to lure Kawhi instead of the Lakers getting him. He's earned every bit of the cache he has around the league.

So yeah, Doc wanting out of that mess of a situation and knowing he could get nearly any job he wants right away is totally the same as getting fired. Sure.....keep your head in the sand.
You sure have some low standards for what a coach could do with these Clippers team. "Perennial playoff team" oh boy, such an accomplishment! Having two MVP candidates in their prime, we're celebrating him getting to the playoffs? Vinny del Negro could (and actually did) get those teams to the playoffs.

Also it's funny how you talk about this Clippers team being an undesirable situation. Huh? How? You have one of the best players in the league, another top 15 player, two sixth man of the year candidates, and a good mix of role players and young players. This team only became undesirable because Doc did an awful job coaching and Kovid Claw and Wayoff P made an appearance at the worst possible moments. This is the equivalent of a person coming into a clean room, making an absolute mess of it, than claiming that the room is too messy and that he wants a clean room.

Believe whatever nonsense you'd like.  It's not important.  Doc immediately was hired for a good reason, he's one of the most sought after coaches around.

Players seem to like playing for him for whatever that is worth.  I'm not really convinced he's terrible nor fantastic.  Jury seems like it's still out on him.

Nothing of substance to add? Good, I'll take that as you conceding the point. Thank god too, considering how much of a bad look it is to shill for a coach that has blown multiple 3-1 leads with two completely different Clippers teams.

Honestly cringeworthy seeing someone unable to comprehend that maybe, just maybe, Doc is deserving of criticism.

Why would Boston fans be bitter? We have a better coach and got a 1st round pick to boot. We trounced the Clippers and fooled them into being mediocre pretenders for a near decade!

Nothing of substance to add? Good, I'll take that as you conceding the point. Thank god too, considering how much of a bad look it is to shill for a coach that has blown multiple 3-1 leads with two completely different Clippers teams.

You can take it however you'd like, that's of no concern to me.

You clearly are just another bitter fan who can't let go of him leaving.  I'm sorry Doc is a coach highly desired around the league and that upsets you.  That's your problem, not mine.  There's no point to be won or lost because your argument isn't even relevant.  Doc wasn't fired, he was allowed to leave.  If you want to imagine it in your head some other way because it makes you feel better about yourself, good for you man, I'm happy for you.
Was barely as fan back then, so your assumption is wrong.  Keep making a fool of yourself until they hopefully add a block button this site some day.
Can't both points be valid? :o Doc is a very good coach, but he crapped the bed in the playoffs this year.
I'd say he's more above average than very good, but I can agree to disagree on that. However he has definitely come up short as a coach multiple times for the Clippers, in ways that are outright embarrassing. He doesn't deserve the reputation he has.

Doc rivers 2.0 lol

To

I mean what is the point?? Lol

Fire rivers and sign the junior version

Doc wasn't fired, he quit.
he quit because he was about to be fired

Everyone knows That

You're wrong.  He quite because it became a toxic work environment.  Maybe you would want to work with the sleazeball that cheated on your daughter and impregnated another woman, most people would not.

Doc showed great character sticking it out for the season, and did the right thing for the team by doing so, but I have no doubts he was blind-sided when Kawhi made it known he would only come if they brought in a star and the only star he could convince to come was Paul George.

People pretending this wasn't the real reason have their heads in the sand.
You really do go to the greatest of lengths to defend Rivers, even though he was obviously and rightfully going to be fired, because he fails as a coach much more often than he succeeds

Those blown 3-1 leads with the Clippers and those miserable 3-2 leads when he was with the Celtics, you name it. Never was an excellent X and O guy, just more of a personality/locker room coach.

Even in Orlando he basically peaked in year 1
