During a recent Clippers practice, Griffin was caught on film making fun of Austin Rivers, the son of head coach Doc Rivers. Griffin pulled out all the stops including the head jerking, Rivers’ dribbling style and even Austin’s “shooting technique.” A video posted by matt_barnes9...

Troll The Clippers with Draymond Green’s ‘Cool Story, Glenn’ Shirts

You may recall that earlier this month Draymond Green and Dahntay Jones got into a little tiff over “a bump.” It seemed stupid, but the Clippers and Warriors hate each other, so it naturally progressed into a thing to add more fuel to a rare NBA rivalry. Doc Rivers didn’t think much of it, and low key chastised Draymond, saying Jones’ bump was too “violent.” Draymond’s...

Blake Griffin Throwing Some Playful Shade at Austin Rivers’ Game

When the Los Angeles Clippers traded for Austin Rivers, Doc Rivers was rightfully panned for the move and deserved every nepotism joke. However, the former Duke guard has been okay in his role as backup point guard. One could even say he’s been a huge upgrade from Jordan Farmar. Still, there are some infuriating aspects of Austin’s game. For example, the guy actually has a decent...

Clippers pound Knicks as Jordan goes 7 for 7

NEW YORK (AP) -- Doc Rivers sat his starters down early, then benched himself after the game.

Doc Rivers loosens up his neck and makes some odd faces

NBA players usually have their pregame warm-ups which includes stretching, sprints, a few laps, and more to loosen up the muscles and get warm before tip-off.

Doc Rivers Rips ESPN Writer For DeAndre Jordan Article He Didn’t Read

Doc Rivers loves to defend his players, and most of the time, there’s nothing wrong with that. When the topic turned to DeAndre Jordan, though, the Los Angeles Clippers coach went a bit too far. It all started in early March, when Rivers gave his big man a resounding endorsement, claiming he’s “clearly” the defensive player of the year. Rivers...

Video: Austin Rivers goes for a career high 28 points

When Danny Ainge traded Austin Rivers to Doc Rivers and the Clippers for a 2nd round pick, basically all of the NBA, the media, and fans gave Ainge props for fleecing Doc. Many people mocked Doc for being a clueless GM and practicing nepotism. Doesn't seem like the Clippers are regretting giving up a pretty much useless future late 2nd rounder for the younger Rivers.
