League source tells me the NBA gave Clippers coach Doc Rivers the option before tipoff to let CJ McCollum play Wednesday. Rivers said no.

Bro, was it you who wanted to keep a Vonleh when he was traded? If so why, what did you see in him?

thought he was gonna be a young, active, athletic big that attacked the boards and stretched the floor. Eventually Zeller and he would be the future 4 & 5 for the Hornets and there was no need for Frank. 

 

 

i bought in on the young potential and basically a right handed Bosh. Boy was i wrong...but i still think Jordan gave up too early. Now hes just in a numbers game up in Portland.

There's also the added fact that Doc and Stotts have got into it a couple times this season. They don't seem to like each other. Doc was probably still pissed about the last time the teams played, when the Blazers hack-a-DJd so much that he shot 35 FTs.

bottom line is Portland's error isn't on Doc in any way. If this story needs a scapegoat, which it doesn't, it's not Doc Rivers for refusing to allow a player that's on fire to play against his guys.

Yeah, I don't see how anyone can have a problem with what Doc did.

I'm not surprised that Doc did it, and technically there's nothing wrong with it, but it's kinda lame in my opinion since it was a clerical error and had nothing to do with injuries/something that happened during the game.

I'm somewhat of a purist when it comes to competition in that I don't think players should flop or try to draw a foul outside of normal basketball plays; thus I despise James Harden's antics or the move Chris Paul pulls where he stops suddenly to create a needless collision when a defender is running behind him down court. To me Doc not letting CJ play is along these same lines; not wrong but doesn't follow the spirit of competition.

I'm sure as a coach you wanna do anything you can to win, and if an opposing team is missing a player cus of injuries you're not gonna wish he was on the court so you could beat them at full strength, but everyone realizes injuries are part of the game. Something like this is a rare/extenuating circumstances and if it were me I'd man up and try to beat them at full strength.

Stotts say anything about this? You know Doc would be *****ing about it if it happened to him.
post #38690 of 93193
Over/under on how many clerical errors it would take for the Clippers to finally win a championship?

We don't need to play the other 4 games,  We the Best 

 

 

In all seriousness though , i messed up. I been drinking lol. 

 

66 - 16  or maybe or 68-14.

post #38698 of 93193
Yup, it's just Win and Loss, not Win (beating a team with all players available). As Herm Edwards would say, you play to win the game.

Stotts accepted the blame and didn't say anything bad about Doc.
