you know it's early in the season when the clippers at 10-5 are tied for the #2 seed in the west

 ;D
Doc is back as a premier coach! ;D

coach of the year frontrunner if they miraculously make the playoffs!  ;D

He loves coaching old guys, but he's actually very good at coaching young teams.

So did we decide, is this good?  Surely they can't last as a #1 or even #5 seed in the West, but with a start like this maybe they sneak in the playoffs and we get a 1st, not a future 2nd?
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Of course this is good, would much rather get a late 1st than a couple of 2nds. Obviously making the playoffs in the West will be tough but 11-5 is a good start. They also have more winnable games in the coming weeks.

It most definitely is a good thing - a 1st is obviously better than a 2nd.

It would be great if they finished up around 7th or 8th in the WC, but I will take them finishing where they are now over getting the ~#40 pick next year.

He loves coaching old guys, but he's actually very good at coaching young teams.

This is a young and ferocious Clippers team though. SGA and Montrezl Harrell are keystone players (I've heard).

I wonder deep down if many of the roster decisions were influenced by Doc during his years here.

Jerry West + Doc Rivers seems like a helluva team. Doc stays off making any roster decisions, and focuses on coaching.

Everything going very nicely with the Clips pick. No incentive to tank yet, given their record - they only need to go at .500 until the trade deadline to prevent the tank, and be in the hunt for a playoff spot.

Pat Beverly was such a nice piece to get back in that CP3 trade. Watching him and Avery on the court together is something to behold. I won't be surprised if Clips even look at upgrading Gortat or Mike Scott (although they've both been playing pretty great too).

I may be incorrect but I thought Clips pick is a 1st protected pick this year OR next year before it conveys as a second if not yet conveyed.

Nope, this is it.

Lottery protected and if it doesn’t convey, it turns into a second.

So it could be anywhere from 15-44.
