Doc Rivers discusses future with the Clippers

  • Andy Flint


The Los Angeles Clippers’ world came crashing down on Thursday night, at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Clippers battled through the “Donald Sterling Saga”, as well as 13 total games between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Clippers were able to beat the Warriors in seven games, but fell to the Thunder in six.

There has been much speculation over whether or not head coach Doc Rivers will be back next season, but during his post game press conference, on Thursday night, Doc explained that he does plan to be back.

“Like I’ve said before, I’m under contract.” Rivers said ” I’ve had no plan of going anywhere. Umm, so as far as I know”

Doc talked about having a strong core with the Clippers. Most of their key guys will be back for next season, and beyond. Guys like Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Reddick, Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes, and Jarde Dudley, will all be back for at least next season. With Rivers calling the shots, you’d have to figure that the Clippers will poised for a deep run next season.

Doc talked about their core, and also about winning it all with this particular team. When asked about the uncertainty of the Clippers future, Doc answered with hope.

“I told them that we were going to win it together.” Doc said. “Umm, you know, uh, It was my job to, ya know, try and make us better, uh, but, you know, we have a great core, and uh, I told them we’re going to have our day, and this is not the end. It’s the beginning for us.”

It’s fair to say that the issues that came with the Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling’s recent comments, have made this team’s bond stronger, heading towards the future.

  • Your team is a reflection of the coach and Doc showed the wrong side of a champion with all his crying over calls.With his experience Doc should have shown more mature attitude but instead he showed how to crack under pressure and his team followed his lead.

  • For all the people that hated on Vinny as a coach you can see that Doc could only get them to one more around and only one more win in the regular season. And Doc did not have to deal with as many injures as Vinny did. Vinny was the one that put a lot of these players in place.


  • cry me a rivers is’nt running his big mouth now and he has the balls to come back to get a paycheck next year after you talk all this $hit on the owner what a two face jerkoff

  • The people who released all that garbage are responsible for hijacking the playoffs. Why would anyone do it at that time.? The entire league and the Clippers in particular are a bunch of way too rich phoneys. Blacks have much larger problems then this private comment. It’s too bad they don’t get involved with real problems like black on black crime and gangs. By the way, if players were aware of Silver’s attitude, why did they sign with the Clippers? MONEY! If the league lets the players dictate who should and should not own a team, Adam Silver should resign for letting the inmates run the asylum. This does not even rate as one of the worst thing to ever happen in the NBA. Letting crooks like Al Sharpton get involved is a real crime. What has that loudmouth done about crime in black neighborhoods? Please stop making it bigger than it is.
