Kawhi could have saved Doc Rivers from being fired, and he didn't — Shannon | NBA | UNDISPUTED

According to reports, Doc Rivers and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer had several lengthy phone conversations following their Game 7 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Ballmer also spoke with several players, including Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, about moving on from Rivers. The report said the players’ opinions did not sway Ballmer and it was his decision in the end to move on from Doc as the Clippers head coach. Hear what Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have to say about Ballmer's decision.

What are your thoughts on Steve Ballmer's decision?

The honest truth: Clippers were acting so arrogant like they had already won something when they didnt
Black Clover

"If you don't give them endorsement, that's an indictment"
Steve Ballmer: "We gotta let Doc go you OK with that?"
Kawhi .......
Steve Ballmer: "Thanks I knew you'd understand"
Uncle Shay has been on fire all week, watching him destroy Skip so regularly is awesome
Jayy Vee
Jayy Vee:
The clippers were literally waiting for the outcome of the Lakers v n8ggets series to make a decision. They wanted to see if the nuggets were as legit as they seem against them and would give the Lakers a hard time and once they saw what the Lakers did to them they looked at Doc different and fired him

To be honest kawhi should have stayed in Toronto

Shannon is right, give Nick Nurse some credits

Out of the blue: Let's give a huge amount of respect for Michael Malone, he did a fantastic job

It's tough enough being doubted, but it's even harder to push through that and succeed, they didn't win the championship, but build that chemistry, build that core and grab picks here and there, you've got a serious threat in the years to come

Why you keep saying against the Nuggets like they some random lucky 8 seed they are a top team in the western conference it shouldn’t be a suprised the clippers were over rated
I didn’t really pay attention to sports until I started watching this show. I love Skip and Shannon’s dynamic.

Clippers : "someone gotta go. It's you Doc."

Yea a cakewalk in the west sounds very stupid and full of envy, jealousy and hate🤣🤣🤣🤣
Shannon finally telling the truth. Kawhi never carried the Raptors
Doc hasn't been out the 2nd round in 7 years with clippers he has blown multiple 3-1 leads he was gone regardless in my mind kawhi just so happen to be in crossfire and got ask what he thinks
Christian Sutton
Christian Sutton:
I feel like skip just says mmm he doesn’t really listen😂😂😂
A.T X:
Kawhi and pg helped doc rivers get fired the way they performed in game 7 💀
I think the Clippers wouldn’t win a title even with a new coach.

They still need a point guard. They’re too wing oriented. They need a facilitator bad!
Luka Vojvodic
Luka Vojvodic:
"Joakim Noah wasn't good since his dad won the French Open" I'm dying after this, Shannon is so funny. Imagine being his grandkid
Max Gasinga

7 years with the Clippers without even 1 final appearance, I think they gave him enough time
Una pa sa First

Ever since that lemon pepper lou incident everything went downhill from there
C B Taylor
C B Taylor:
I think Kawhi was talking about his teammates when referring to "basketball IQ", not necessarily Doc. I think Kawhi should be more vocal with the team and be a better leader but this does not solely sit on him. I believe Ballmer wanted to get rid of Doc and he had to make him the scapegoat.
Shadow Warrior
Shadow Warrior:
Just move this team to Seattle where they belong. LA is and will always be Laker town.
Kawhi is no longer the kawhi of San Antonio he's a diva now. SMH I use to like the guy, now i can't stand him
I love how Skip says Kawhi is better than LeBron but Holds lebron to a higher standard than MJ and simultaneously holds Kawhi "Baby Jordan" Leonard to the same standard as Zach Lavine

LeBron could have saved half his team being traded 2 years in a row, and he didn't
Good riddance! "Doc" rivers ain't a good coach! He even supports blm rioters. What a shame.

I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Kawhi opts out and heads back to the Raptors cuz he realizes what he left behind with the entire country of Canada worshiping him as a god but more importantly a way better team
Chris Eller

Blake The Snake:
why should he endorse Doc.. he hasn't won anything coaching the Clippers
"I'm A Be In My Own Car At The Parade, LOL. Club Shay Shay You Be Acting A Fool On Skip!" M.C. DA BULL
I am surprised Skip did not blame Lebron James for the Clippers firing Doc. LOL
LOL why is anyone asking that choking fool Playoff P anything? 😂

It's funny how Doc Rivers never recruited or asked Kawhi Leonard or Paul George to come to the Clippers and yet he got fired because of their shortcomings.
3:37 Cross Examination 😂 Skiyup! You supm else.. lol
J P:
“Sometimes I can be not such a nice guy...”

*Kawhi Laugh (The first one not the second one)
If kawahi stays in Toronto it's Lakers v Raptors going 7 right now
We all know that if this was Lebron Skip would be ripping him for blowing a 3-1 lead and Doc getting fired because of it.
Allan Markell
Allan Markell:
Kawhy would be playing the finals right now if he had stayed in toronto!!!

Trevor Philips:
Malone badly outcouched Doc

Malone, clipboard running around, constantly made coverage changes halfway thru series and halfway thru games and Doc did nothing — Doc choked
Sage Mulkey
Sage Mulkey:
This was my first time even hearing the Toronto coach's name
LeBron helps an old lady whom fell... Skip would play the footage in reverse and claim he shoved her down.
J S:
I never thought adding Leonard and George to the same team was very smart. They are too similar as players. It is hard to win when your two best players are clones. You need to have some diversity on the roster, so each player plays their own role. They are good-to-great players on their own, but somewhat cancel each other out and minimize each other's effectiveness when both are on the court at the same time.
Lucky Love
Lucky Love:
That was a mistake to fired Doc they gon regret that
From 2:34 on you could see Skip trying to hold in his laughter lol. Shannon is too much
No way could Kawhi have stopped this in fact he wanted Doc out and it was the correct decision.

Hey NBA gms/owner’s STOP underestimating chemistry when putting together these teams, a bunch of great players doesn’t always guarantee a championship

Shannon has a solid point, you don't wanna give someone like kahwi a reason not to stay.
Doc rivers has been there for 7 years never made a conference finals or a finals. Had kawhi PG Cp3 blake griffin deandre jordan paul pierce jj reddick jamal crawford. 3-8 in series clinching games and the 3rd time his teams gave up a 3-1 lead. Why are people so surprised they moved on from him
Unc’s points were spot on
Dante Ramirez
