Doc has to go! There is no 2 ways about it.. The culture and attitude of this team has been indifferent and that boils down to a lack of discipline. You can not turn it on and off whenever you want. They approached the Hubble with a lot of negligence. A lot of their players showed up whenever they wanted and today they paid dearly for it.

Agreed. The casualness bothered me. Like they expected to just show up against Lakers in the WCF. No matter how good you think you are, you cant sleepwalk thru the playoffs

All year I heard that the Clippers got two of the best two-way players in the league, two 6th man of the year candidates, a hall of fame coach, championship caliber assistants, a billionaire owner and a happy locker room, so there was no way they were not going to win it all.

Time that other teams where gaining team chemistry the clippers used it for load management, they thought they're the raptors.
They would have lost to the mavs if KP didn't get hurt sef. Heat in 4

Kawhi + Playoff Pee = 5pts in the second half and 0pts in the fourth quarter.

What kind of nonsense is that

Person wey dey play basketball go know sey 3-1 lead isn't all that. Once you check out mentally, that's all.

I just imagine LeBron squandering a 3-1 lead.
Would have made a nice headline. grin
With all these going on, the Nuggets can still get swept. I stopped underrating a LeBron led team since 2016.


Only Adam Silver or the refs can stop the Lakers at this point because he's going to be doing it for Kobe. I love the narrative already. wink grin

Stephen A nah comedian I swear, it facial expression is second to none. I still dey talk am, if say klay was fit we MAY not have lost that series talk less of Durant was also fit, because in one of the game in the final he could not stop curry from having over 50 points without klay or durant in the game.
But as they say hindsight is 20/20. Can't wait for the splash brothers to comeback, Durant and Irvine in the east, the hand working Miami heat, to put the Pandemic P and Kawhi together with the choke brothers of westbrick and Harden to their place. It will be a long while before we go see these chokers for final again.

After the shock, in hindsight, I realize the clippers did not have a defensive answer for a skilled big man like Jokic. Just watched some clips of how Harrell was trying to guard Jokic. Several times he gets lost in defensive rotations and leaves Jokic open at the top of the key.

Guys like Harrell are very good at traditional big man defense, as in put a body on the opponent in the post, make him feel you. But once you start to throw screens and move the ball, the game becomes more mental and bruisers like Harrell can blow your defense. And a skilled big man will make you pay. We already saw signs of it in the matchup with Dallas when Porzingis played.

Bottomline, this was a bad matchup for Clippers. They loaded up their team in anticipation of a matchup with Lakers - I could see Harrell bothering Lebron all day. They really didnt think any other team could give them problems. Doc Rivers made the matters worse, as in no adjustments. Even when Nugets were leading in the fourth, he was like CALM DOWN, CALM DOWN. Nah, that was the time to go into overdrive!

Lakers cant look down on this team - they are for real

I agree 100 % and what makes jokic so deadly is his passing and shooting range . you double him and he finds an open man, you choke the paint and he makes the jump shot.
Giannis needs to go and learn from jokic. grin

I have been hyping Denver the last 3 seasons now because I legit believed something was brewing there, and really they should be back to back conference finalists tbh

As for Kawhi and Clippers I blame and will always blame Doc Rivers and the coaches. They set the tone for all of this all season long and it's only right they reap the rewards

Lmaoooo then the world is crazy. Loudmouth Stephen A will not chat megedefegede about privilege now for a coach that has been shittin the bed for the past 7 seasons. The only coach that has ever blown 3, 3-1 leads.

The Ty Lue, Cassell etc they kept shouting were passed over by the Nets. Shey you can see their hand work with a loaded roster.

Stephen A actually called him out and said his job is in jeopardy. Doc can't dodge the blame in this one.

The nuggets maybe the new warriors. Talented young team lurking in the shadows while everyone was busy yapping lob city, OKC and spurs they suddenly learnt how win from the blues tasted blood and the championship windows of other teams closed
