Evander Boone
Evander Boone:
He’s not an elite coach, just the media perception of him and his celebrity status.
Nathan Bain

Probally because Lakers finished nuggets in 5 and clippers didn’t.

Bout time Mr. "Hes a Great Man" got fired he coached more talent than anybody and got 1 ring to show for it
I love Doc. But when you’re told he blew a 3-1 lead to a lesser team, and you legitimately have to ask which time, this was certainly a possibility.
Josh Chavez
Josh Chavez:
He’ll go to the rockets to reunite with his son Austin rivers .
I like me some Doc Rivers, but not gonna lie that the media massively overrate him like he's on the level of Gregg Poppovich or Erik Spoelstra.
Joe Juan

Layoff Pee got Doc fired and cheated on his daughter. SMH
Jeffrey Smith
Jeffrey Smith:
Asking why Doc Rivers got fired has to be the dumbest question I've heard asked on SC.
Joseph Austin
Joseph Austin:
Good riddens. Doc has had way too much talent throughout his coaching career to have one championship.
Jing Qi

As long as PG is with the Clippers, the Clippers will not be champs.
D's Real Reviews
D's Real Reviews:
Doc literally stood and watch his team blow double digit leads in each game they lost, on top of that let that immature roster act like idiots the entire time in the bubble. I mean what was he doing?
Jack Knight
Jack Knight:
When you’re a coach who fails being 3-1 up then obviously something is wrong.
It wasn't championship or bust

Star Studded Wrestling:
Stephen A bout to lose it tomorrow 😂😂😂
Maybe Brad Stevens will get fired for not knowing how to handle a zone defense and Doc can return to being an overrated celtics coach 🤣
Trey Chapo
Trey Chapo:
Thank Lou, montrez and paul george for this but people will never use context when speaking of doc
Carl Gonzales
Carl Gonzales:
A year ago people were hyping up the idea of Doc Rivers coaching both Kawhi and PG, ended up getting him fired LOL

Y’all blaming Doc for Kawhi and PG choking 3 straight games is hilarious 🤣🤣🤣

William Schwab
William Schwab:
I’m surprised ESPNs whole take wasn’t that he was a victim of racism.... im sure once Marx Kellerman gets on the air it will be
Im begging Jerry West to call Mark Jackson! "Mama, there goes that man!"
Kawhi wanna be Lebron so bad getting his head coach fired 😂
Clippers should of fired Doc when he couldn't win with Griffin and Paul

Making the playoffs in the nba means nothing . Ask the rockets , clippers , pacers , sixers , or thunder ex coaches

Watch Clippers do something more ridiculous like getting Mike Dntoni at coach
Young Blood

If it's one thing Stephen A Smith is right about, it's when he tells us about a General Manager or Coach job being on on the line if they fail.
Ricardo Masvidal
Ricardo Masvidal:
Sadly I saw this coming, we didnt get any better when Doc was here for 7 years! but im sure the players will miss having him in the locker room
Hector Rodriguez

I didn’t expect the Clippers to fire doc Rivers until now
David Sayimright

How much I hate to say it, Mark Jackson will get them where they need to be.

Paul George still gonna be hitting those corner 3’s off the side of the backboard in crunch time so they’re good man 😂🏀
El R.
El R.:
There were high expectations when they brought in Kawhi Leonord and Paul George. In the end its up to the players to get out there and play well.
O.A Stamp
O.A Stamp:

They should say "fired" the same as when anyone else gets fired.
Doc Rivers was drinking his own hipster coach Kool-aid all year long, and paid the price for it. Clippers are SO Screwed as both Leonard and Georgel signed player friendly short term contracts. Plus, when you think all the future picks the Clippers had to give up to bring George Paul to LA. They need to also fire the GM and assistant Clippers GM as they have doomed the future of this franchise for the next 5 years..
Max Kellerman: This was the correct move by the Clippers
Stephen A Smith: You and the Clippers are racist, here's why

I remember all the jokes that were made when Kawhi went to the "doc" as opposed to the Nurse in Toronto.

Oh how the turn tables...(Michael Scott)
Glenn Gamut
Glenn Gamut:
"Uh... Adrian... when did the clippers decide to decide this decision?"
Tony Muñoz
Tony Muñoz:
He made ZERO adjustments against the Nuggets and depending on the players to do everything. He’s overrated and I hope the next coach knows how to use his pieces better. This team is a championship team and just need a championship coach
He should've pulled a D'Antoni, quit while you are getting fired lol
Dramacydal EL
Dramacydal EL:

Al Metalicano
Al Metalicano:
Mark Jackson can definitely revive the clippers and make them Clippers.
He did that in GSW.
Up 3-1 and chokes it up, at least now he'll have time to do all the marching for BLM, that his overrated heart desires.

Kahwi just wasted 2 or 3 yrs of his prime years, plus i can't believe clippers gave away all those future draft picks for paul george

That team was on to something before he came there and changed everything. He traded away some good players and still never got to the finals

It was a simple business decision. Kawhi will be selecting the next coach in the comimg weeks. 😆
"why did the Clappers DECIDE to make this DECISION"

I think the dummy was aiming for "Why did the Clappers make this decision".

The Clippers remind me of the early 2000s Sacramento Kings I've never seen a team so complete but yet can't even at least get to a Western Conference Finals😞
Alex The Rican

Doc been falling short since Chris Paul Deandre Jordan and Blake griffin. He knew this was coming the clippers was the favorite all year long and they became the biggest disappointment in NBA history

I’m a Celtics fan , I’ve always said Doc was over ratted, he knows how to build a team but he’s not good at making players better!
Joe Kenney
Joe Kenney:
This is on the Clippers players especially Kawhi and PG. Sometimes if the coaches plays or adjustments don't work you take matters into your own. Kawhi and PG are telented enough to do that. Denver was good but not yet elite. The Lakers showed us that.

Hey yo Steve, I’m your new basketball coach.
-Coach Carter
Jesus, who was God in the flesh of a man, died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. If you simply believe in this to apply to you and trust Jesus to save you from the second death, then you have everlasting life in heaven. As Jesus says in John 6:47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life."
Doc was so confident and cocky that In interviews when he was up 3-1 he never seemed worried at all
He deserved to get fired he has to take responisbility for the collapse vs Nuggets. The media made Kawhi the scapegoat when Doc should also take some blame. Tyronn Lue could replace him.
Uncle Ben
Uncle Ben:
TakethedayoffP has to also take some of that blame
