Found September 13, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
This year will be the first year that Doc Rivers will be coaching the Los Angeles Clippers and apparently, he wants to see two of his big stars less on commercials and more on the basketball court. Check out what Rivers told WEEI’s Justin Barrasso while attending an Action for Boston Community Development’s Hoop Dreams charity event: “Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, the first thing I asked them, I said, you know what bugged me? I watched the Finals, and you guys were on more than the game. You’re on every commercial. We need to get off the commercials and onto the floor.” In the same article, Rivers commented on Kevin Garnett’s use of the “f-bomb” during his tenure in Boston: “The word that starts with ‘f’? He thought it was a noun, verb and an adjective,” Rivers said. *** Chris Paul/Blake Griffin image courtesy of Getty Images
