The Los Angeles Clippers blew a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets, and now wholesale changes are taking place. Adrian Wojnarowski dropped a patented Woj Bomb on Monday evening when he reported Doc Rivers was out as head coach of the team.
This is a surprise because it was only Doc's first year with the star pairing of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George that came together last summer. And it was obviously quite a weird year, what with the pandemic cutting the season short and the playoffs taking place in neutral territory while players were, for the most part, unable to see friends or family. Losing a series in seven games after going up 3-1 is definitely a bad thing, to say the least, but one would figure Rivers would get at least one more year to prove he can coach this team to the heights the talent level suggests it can reach.
