DOC RIVERS RUMORS & GOSSIP
When it comes to starters and bench players, Clippers coach Doc Rivers doesn't have to worry about bruising any egos.
It's a unique situation for a professional sports team.
Jamal Crawford, who was named the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year last season, thrives when coming in off the bench. Matt Barnes has said he prefers to come in off the bench rather than start, but that...
Defense wins championships, they say, but good rebounding sure doesn't hurt.
Three games into the preseason, the Clippers have found that there's plenty of work to do in the rebounding department. They've been outrebounded, badly, in every game -- Opponents own 46.3 percent to 31.7 percent advantage.
They have the best returning rebounder in the NBA in DeAndre Jordan...
There's no reason for panic over the Clippers' preseason record, at least not from coach Doc Rivers.
The Clippers are 0-3 in the preseason, having lost to Golden State, Portland and most recently Monday's 102-89 loss at Utah.
"I do have one announcement," Rivers said while smiling. "We're probably not going to win the preseason championship."
Steve Wojciechowski has landed the prize he's been after ever since becoming the head coach at Marquette University.
Henry Ellenson, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Rice Lake, Wis., committed to Wojciechowski and Marquette on Thursday morning, choosing the Golden Eagles over Kentucky and Michigan State.
Ellenson is ranked as the No. 4 overall player in the class of 2015 by ESPN...
Doc Rivers is a master motivator.
He devilishly asked his Celtics to give him $100 while they were playing at Staples Center during the 2010 season. He then hid the money inside the visitor’s locker room and said they would get the money back when the team returned to Los Angeles for the NBA Finals.
The Celtics finished fourth in the East and then upset the top-seeded Cavaliers...
Las Vegas wasn't Doc Rivers' first choice.
After enjoying a wonderful week in San Diego last fall, Rivers wanted to make it the team's annual routine.
But the Los Angeles Clippers' bitter rivals, the Memphis Grizzlies, stepped in at the last minute and used majority owner Robert Pera's connections --Pera is a UCSD alum -- to secure their spot for training camp...
The San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers are the latest teams to join the Cleveland Cavaliers in the race to get shooting guard Ray Allen.
Allen, is currently a free agent and last played with the Miami Heat, has yet to decided whether to continue his NBA career in what would be his 19th season or to retire.
The Spurs only have one open roster spot on their team...
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers apparently has a strong dislike for his former point guard, Rajon Rondo. While Rivers had a very successful run as coach of the Boston Celtics, there was several reports of friction between the two. And it doesn’t stop there. Rondo had a beef with sharpshooter Ray Allen during their […]

Rachel Nichols recently traveled to the home of Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers for an interview, and she snapped this picture of Doc’s amazing home office before posting it on Instagram. That’s probably a lot more green than Clippers fans would like, but there’s tons of Celtics memorabilia from Rivers’ 2008 championship in Boston – including a replica banner and...
