Welp, it looks weird and I hate it but Doc Rivers coached his first regular season game last night for the Los Angeles Clippers.
The scary thing about Doc is that he’s going to make the Clippers a defensive minded team. Their offense is already explosive but match that with Doc’s defensive approach and the Clipps could be unbeatable.
Doc has never had weapons like point guard Chris Paul and sixth man Jamal Crawford before. Doesn’t hurt when you throw in JJ Redick who is on the Ray Allen “get open through five screens a possession” plan.
They did lose last night while Chris Paul and Blake Griffin didn’t simultaneously tear their ACL’s like I hoped. But don’t be surprised if LA ends up having the best record in the West at the end of the year.
And if you were wondering, yes The Iron Sheik was also watching the game:
Deandre Jordan 1000 time better than Andre the Giant. Andre shit his pant every night he never respect the fans. Deandre never shit his pant
