"doc rivers" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"The nuggets are essentially ready for anything. To they've won six elimination games this postseason their last four playoff series. Even if you stretch back to last year of all been game sevens, they've done an amazing job, their head coach, Michael Malone, had corona virus, their best player Yoke Corona virus overcome a ton to get here. But I want to bring this up to you real quick and get your thoughts because it's all really about the clippers and where they go in their immediate future, July five, twenty, nine, thousand, nine. Hundred last summer as we're in the final stretches of summer this year I know some places it doesn't feel like summer but July five, twenty, nineteen, NBA Summer League Las Vegas. It's all good. We're playing. Everybody's having fun, and then an earthquake hits and do you remember that last summer earthquake? It's shut down all the Games there at the summer league and that was all the talk and then about four or five hours later, and I can say this tongue firmly in cheek. Because there were no serious injuries out in Las Vegas at the Summer League. The NBA had a huge earthquake of itself because about five hours after the earthquake, it was Colli and Paul George Whoa dropped it they were both going to the clippers. So here we are they still don't have enough to get over the top with those to a great coach, doc rivers, the expanded a year and Monterey Herald a former six of the year it Lou Williams. What else did they need? You think it's enough right I. mean every time we get to these situations in basketball or in any sport for that matter where a team looks like they're going to win it all and then they get derailed. The first thing we start doing is trying to figure out what else is it that they need what else is it that they need I don't think they need anything I think they need to change their approach I think they need to realize in the regular season yeah. Kawhi. Leonard gets rest in you still win games but if you want some sort of continuity because you pointed to that in the postseason Post Presser saying that you guys didn't feel like you were in sync and hadn't played a whole lot of basketball together. Well, you need to change that approach. If that is truly what you believe, you need to change that approach because it certainly worked when Kawai was in Toronto he won with Nick Nurse Coach I mean. So how does it not work for you? In La, I think you gotta look at the XS and Os certainly the willy in. There, they have the players to compete for championship. There's no question about it. So if that's the case. Why aren't we really focusing in on Doc rivers in the situation like you mentioned earlier. This is his third time. Up Three one in a playoff series that he loses. In. About Doc rivers because of all the respect that we have for him everything he stands for we love about Doc rivers. If this was any other coach with this type of talent in this situation, we would be you know doing some dirty work to him right way maybe. You, guys get all he needs to do. Is Take some time off reshift his focus figure out what it was that he did wrong as a coach in get the players to fully buy in. So they could try and make a run. To, dethrone the Lakers of the twenty twenty championship that they're going to win in twenty twenty one. Okay. Put that altogether caller calling it. The biggest beneficiary of the clippers collapse are Brian win says it's obvious. Lebron. Has Been Given a glorious opportunity. The bucks are gone. The clippers are gone. Those are the two teams that we fought for months where the teams that we're going to give them problems. All right. He is holding in his hand a chance that fourth title a chance at that winning that title with that thirteen putting another banner up at staples legendary status as a laker going forward. He's gotTa take it. He could play another three years of the Lakers and not get this opportunity again whether it's the clippers or or heat or whoever every honest goes or whatever happened. So his eyes are wide open on this one he knows. So he's gotTa. Take it took. That's not even Brian's great with that but that's already took. He was GONNA do that. Even if he had to go up against the Clippers e, he knew that coming to, La. It was going to be crazy amounts of pressure for him to deliver a world championship it just it. It's just what it is you the greatest player in the world you got the purple and gold on the fans and the people of L. A. Are Starving for another championship haven't had once Kobe Bryant and on top of that everything that we've gone through and twenty twenty, you being a part of the team when everything happened to Kobe and you coming out and saying, go put all this on. Your back we expect for him to deliver a championship. There's no question about it and I believe he's going to do it alone with and the rest of the cast of characters. So this could be as tens appearance in the finals if he can get past the nuggets are Charles Charles. Barkley was joining our program a couple of weeks ago, and he essentially said when we asked him after the nuggets were gassed outlasted Utah that game seven what percent chance do you give the nuggets to beat the clippers and he flat said zero so we're not going back to chuck because he was wrong. So I'm GonNa ask you percent chance that the nuggets can beat the Lakers zero zero. I'm a double down Chuck Zero now. Can they? Can Aid spook them yeah. They could spook them. The Lakers have lost the first game in both series that they played this year I mean in this playoffs right and they wrote they could certainly spoken. But then when you look at, you look at the situation with the Lakers, you talk about in head to head matchups season alone the Lakers are up three one I just don't think that they have enough especially from an offensive standpoint with the Lakers defense in all of the big bodies that we can run at the joker. I. Mean we run a Deity. Dwight Howard avail at him I. Mean You know he he certainly in my opinion is not quick enough in in as far as his feet movements is concerned to get past them if he brings them out from underneath the basket to blow pass them in a long enough to defend the long shot. So I, just look at what Frank Vogel done from a defensive standpoint in the bubble a tremendous job. The defense has completely made a hundred eighty degree change from the regular season to what they're doing the bubble now and then the Brian James Factor..
Nuggets Rally Again To Stun Los Angeles Clippers, Force Game 7
"I thought you guys said, the Nuggets Clippers series was over I. Know I did. I said the nuggets we're packing to get on the bubble. What happened Yeah I. Tony this elephant series I mean they seem to be in the clippers heads now and the question is, can they lived there for one more game? A game seven tomorrow night to go to the Western Conference final win expects from the clippers. I mean when you when you were the clippers and you have Leonard and you have Paul George, who were not, they were great. They were barely good yesterday and you've got Yo could shoot shots off one foot with these. I mean it's UNBELIEVA I eat PICCI's throwing off one foot and his all Neta. Cup. Several Times I differs in this I don't know expect expected the game tomorrow night I have no idea who's going to win game seven. I'm going to pick the clippers because I think that they are the better team but as much as I like Doc rivers and as much as you love dot. Smith Guy, he has the only coach in NBA. Whiteside, lose a series where he was already worry one. This could be three You often say that Denver's very young team and you can't expect much of them but they've been together longer than the clippers the clippers this is all on Kuwa- and your boy playoff Pete because they were brought here one games like like this. So you still you're still look I think the clippers can win but Tony at this point I think mistakes that I keep waiting for Denver to make the kill them, they make them and a mistake still don't kill him. To grant one, three, one, eight, they were down three Utah wanted yeah
Doc Rivers on Clippers: ‘We’re here because we put ourselves here’
"Mantras. Herro. Has not been the same. Player since he came back from being away, Lou Williams has not been the same player since he came out of the NBA Quarantine jail there this is just the facts that doesn't necessarily mean that that's going to change the outcome on tomorrow night for game seven. But this is not simply the the clippers messing around there at the break here and his doc rivers said today they clippers put themselves here nobody else and it's up to the clippers to get themselves out of it. Yeah I'm not sure mantras heralds should be guarding Nikola Jokic chapter what we've seen the last couple of games herald had a good game for though. So I, mean, it's one of these things. That's a little confusing because I think I heard you mentioned this Brian that he's the sixth man of the year, not just of the team but of the League and yet he is not the six-man off their bench in that last game right that he drew my green came off the bench that they they have not been able to use him as they wanted to, and it goes so much deeper than that. Just so many parts of this team not functioning together the way that they can. and. We've seen them do it at times the season, but we have also seen them lack cohesion at times. This season and game seven is not a time for that. We will have to see if they can pull it
"doc rivers" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Were asking is you live up to the constitution? That's all we're asking for. For everyone. Back. Mike Ryan STU gods has been saying for a COUPLA days now because he's jealous that I write essays for television soaked in Hbo Real. Sports. and Tom Rinaldi. He has said that he's going to write an essay and he had the perfect opportunity yesterday to write a mess say about Leeann L. Messi who was in the news because he's transferring it's an it's a monster move right? It's. It's Michael Jordan switching teams are Michael Jordan even bigger than paint manning, becoming a free agent and us. Following him with helicopters messy changing teams in his early thirties would be like Michael Jordan doing okay. I was going to say Tom Brady but he did it in his forties so. Extremely rare in soccer because the topline elite athletes usually picking your landing spot if you're forcing a transfer out of a handful of teams try to decide. Okay. We're can I get the most money out of this like three teams that can afford the transfer fee? This is reportedly a free transfer. You had an exit clause Barzan Messier fighting over that because the language for him to exercise clause said June but he's Like the season didn't end, it's an offseason clause and there's a pandemic. So there might be a fight over that. But messy has his pick of the litter and you could justify paying him crazy wages because you're not spending millions upon millions for a transfer fee. It's a pretty unprecedented for a player like him, but it will still be a big story tomorrow correct like that's that's gonNA carry a couple of days. A stab at writing a mess say today this afternoon you're not you're not. He threw throughout the idea. It was a great name for it. Right? He's just hoping someone else does it for him well, you and we'll see if you get it done this afternoon I will deliver it tomorrow morning. That let's do the normal thing. You go rough draft show like the slightest bit of effort. Again, I'll come in. That's all takes for Mike. I show him just a little effort little pen to pay cuts at a Mike Fills in the gap we've been doing for twenty years around here. It's like the whole. The whole thing is constructed to do that for you. How Do you think your profound laziness? It's been rewarded I'm a guy he just likes to get the ball rolling Dan. You know you don't want be roll the ball out for you. What happened with the cigarettes person record book I just wanted to buy from you. Want your thoughts to. Who are you want your thoughts to immediately result in direct deposits? That's how you involve us an idea guy I throw ideas out there therefore the group and if someone like to execute the business plan together. That stand for the group therefore you it's to enhance your lazy character into not doing anything but looking good and looking like he's doing some Pie, throw it out there chum in the water. So wants to bring me a business plan. I'll cut you out and bring it to an invested. Just throw a draft and we'll massage it and it'll be great and it'll be your voice. You'll get praised just do something that's it just plan just far out a seed and I will fertilize it. This is how we've been doing it for twenty years I. Don't understand why you're just noticing this now. Hold Prediction. Of this now, we're a mess say tomorrow Oh wait a minute. It's funny that you should say that Mike because when's the last time that I bet him something that was fully under his control and I ended up winning the bed anyway. Was it the color of his car color Vince car o you have total control and I bet you one hundred dollars eight that you wouldn't do it because your wife didn't want you to do it and you couldn't do it and you got the other car. What's the bet right now I bet one hundred dollars that there will be goat eight, my computer excuse tomorrow you will not get the seeds of anything on a message saying I mean I just laid the groundwork for him to send me just two sentences. What is the bet? No, it's got gotta be more than Matt for me like you gotta give me more than that. Not something he can dictate into his phone on the way home listen to decide what's fair. I think one centers is actually Joking. Tyler graphs I will give you a lot. Let's paragraph I mean is that two sentences six? Is it four I? Mean you're asking for? A minimum of ten sentences for say a no matter how much is misspelled in it? Okay. Matter how lazy it is yes. Billy. What you have for us here it doesn't know Ted sentences worth of messy anything though like what is he going to say about messy at ten sentences nobody's okay. Got It. Do not count like weekend. where it's like Lionel Messi Mike Reid a joke here for me. That's that's getting the ball roll I mean. Said Billy just wrote a sentence I. reminded. Teams as he been on messy. Yes. Messing signed with Barcelona when he was a young boy. So he's this is a huge deal. This is a tragic day for this is Babe Ruth leaving the Yankees. Okay. So this Because Babe Ruth was Babe Ruth like. That's a hypothetical scenario. This is this is unprecedented per player of that elite talent Tata's pick of the litter it it it's it's massive so much so that I still don't believe it's actually happening. Graham Wall tweeted out that he still thinks most likely landing spot is still Barcelona that there's to be some sort of makeup. Did you see what happened the new manager like? So Nfl Sal, the days of your privilege are over messy. Messy facts out. Let, me faxed it in you have to fax I was like who still uses facts, but it's like legally you have to fax, you're bound by it so it can't be a computer signature in email like legally there are certain documents that have to be faxed in. I did not know that I did not know that in twenty twenty Messi had to actually send a fax. He had to go find a fax machine it could not be a docu signs situation. What I wanted to ask you this because. I was told that on a call a couple of weeks ago Inter Miami, which has had a disastrous start in every respect not just pandemic everything has been disastrous soccer should work in this market soccer has been trying to work in this market for a long time. We are an international market. If you were to get messy, it would be an enormous enormous thing that would immediately because this town is all about the shiny sparkling things make soccer matter in this. City in a way that it never has if you were to get messy, they are targeting him however. I. Feel like that's everyone in the League in the NBA. Saying they're targeting Jaanus like, yes of course, everyone is targeting Jaanus Before this even became news inter Miami was targeting having a conversation about targeting messy. They've made no secret about that. MESSI was even a part of their introductory video and Messi sort of publicly flirted with this idea Beckham messy to. Sort of like Lebron and Michael Jordan and Adidas has an entire contract with MLS. Messy is not coming mls unless Adidas does something wild and now it's all funny money and bleeding into WHO's actually paying messy messy molasses. A realistic thing in Inter Miami's a realistic thing and a couple of years as messy steams ever won anything I'm sorry I'm asking you seriously. Think he has three Champions League trophy. World. Cup, though he made it to a final, famously, Stu gods has been writing things down this entire segment. I feel like he this is the most effort he's going to pour into the mess a right here he's written like five or six notes down, and he just interviewed you instead of checking the Internet on what Messi has done while on air we're doing the radio show we need the content it's a seismic sports, move students doing his research in segment by just listening to my..

"This is the Dan Lebatardshow with this to got spot casts. So we've got NBA players possibly boycotting the playoffs nick nurse has talked to the raptors about that based on what happened with. Jacob. Blake in Wisconsin. Being shot in the back several times by police officers in front of his loved ones we've got. Billy wondering aloud whether we just witnessed. As a sports community, the saddest, no hitter in the history of no hitters might just learned right now that there was a no hitter the biggest star in the world though he may be a fraud according to Stugotz Is leaving. Barcelona. We'll get to that in a second but the first thing I want to get to is What it is. You were arguing about before the show I couldn't tell what the argument was. Was it the best I in food for taste or was it the best I bite in food for sound I could not tell what you guys were arguing about because it just ended up being about Oh a delicious hamburger. Oh, a delicious hot dog but it started out his toast and I thought you guys were arguing about sound not taste. What were you arguing about? Roy Hijack the game because billy took a bite of toast and we heard it and we were like in Tony. Iro like what a delightful sound. So we just start saying what is the best sound of bite you can take of all foods and Roy Kinda shifted the game he said baking crackling on the stove, which is a different game, the best sound of preparing a food. So those are the two games we've been playing this morning I think Roy's game is actually easier to play outside of toasts Ryan. ABC Some cereal maybe potato chips there's not a lot of foods that have a good sound when chew them. Roy. Expanded the Game Roy's game is a better game. It's just the best food sand in general either that's a much better game to play the best I. Bite the best food sound in general and for me it is, Bacon cooking pan. Okay but now you're not doing I bytes anymore. You're just doing the sound of something and basically that sound wouldn't mean anything to you if it wasn't accompanied by the Smell Now. The smell is the thing that get you with cooking bacon or sound soup. The slurping sound Paul No, that's totally. A top three sound for me like Abbott Toast is number one and outside of that a soup slurp. Great are you kidding? I don't think most people would put soup slurp in their top three sounds that food make. I'm actually more interested Chris as you've. Tried to carve a path for yourself a career in radio expertise do you go to sleep at night thinking how to make these conversations into arguments because I felt like I was listening to the show as you guys just made it the game of first bite sound you realize very quickly toast is going to win. There's not going to be second place because apple's not gonNa feel as good as toes, and then you just pivoted into well delicious foods Mrs My wheelhouse has everyone gained weight during the pandemic I share have, and then you started gambling about how difficult? It is deed cereal while you're watching television. So I'm just is this the merging of your world, your career path in a pandemic and food you're like, yes, I've got something to talk about today i. mean this is like Improv. I hear things come at me and that's how I react Dan owns Mike called stugatz fat. I say we're all fat billy took a bite toast. I hear the sound I'm like, what's the best food sound I'm just like it just goes in it goes into my brain and my brain cooks it up and then it comes on my mouth. Which game where we play? The game that we're playing, it might not be playing games in the NBA boycott. We'll get to that in a minute, but this is a slightly more important at the moment before we get to any of that who through the No hitter I've been watching get up and I take for it like an hour and a half, and I haven't seen any mention of it. Well, I'm hoping we don't get to any mentioned messy. Because I heard you talking about Suarez and Messi before the show, and if I don't hear another syllable of that the rest of my life, I will die. Happy. Let me ask you something when when you do that whole bully about soccer thing and you cut your ear to I, guess the establishment white man from the nineteen nineties. Are you proud of yourself? This is the biggest sports story in the world I I'm not. With the actual story I didn't know my that. No I'll shut up about the biggest in the world switching teams my bad. I apologize to all of you including you Dan who took serious events. I JUST WANNA point out to the audience and it's not soccer that's annoying. It's you. Get your way of. Your specific way of discussing soccer. Like legit apology. I was over give you. Having real conversation about soccer not this on air thing defending the merits I was talking to someone who was also interested and you were eavesdropping route of you by the way to bring that on you I was eavesdropping but to in my meager defense, I only started eavesdropping because through God said welcome back cocaine Mike because of how fast you were talking about the. Things you are passionate about this up I I'm glad you may. Mike, Francesa. Proud today with your very original take again, I want to tell the audience and all you soccer's zealots out there.

"doc rivers" Discussed on Get Up!
"I honestly taught looking at NBA coaches in players I. Actually Hope Somebody Shows Jerry Jones that doc rivers video because if at this point in time after everything we've seen if you still need your players to come to an anthem compromise that tells me that you have not been paying attention that shows me how much privilege you have to not even be. Affected by what we're seeing, it shouldn't take like Dominic said, it shouldn't take a black man getting shot in the back seven times. It shouldn't take a black woman being sprayed with bullets in her bed by police. It shouldn't take cops me on a black man's next for eight minutes and forty six seconds for white NFL coaches white NFL teammates to say. I, see it I. I understand now that you're that that the black people that I know that their lives, they live their lives differently they have to they have to understand certain things. They have to move a certain way and for Jerry Jones I mean it why was drew brees dragged this off season because he he didn't understand that talking about the anthem. Just takes away from all the issues that people of color talking about right now and Jerry Jones I. Really Hope he watches that video and other people because of Roger Goodell he can have all the conversations. He wants to have the uncomfortable conversations with black people he wants to have but clearly, there's a disconnect and he doesn't speak for all thirty two owners. Are saying. I don't know man. You know we we talked about fear I. Think. What. People don't understand is that becomes anger. You know in Kimberley missing mentioned having uncomfortable conversations not not accountable to have a conversation when you make forty million a year when the system is set up for you. Don't matter how much doc rivers cries. Jerry. Jones is not going to be a billionaire. He's not going to be white. He's not GonNa have the same friends running the same circle that he already does and you know you are right Greenie. I think Dominique Kimberly I like we all understand it on an individual level. There are good people. You know they're they're good white people, black people, Asian Mexican like we understand that and then. When Colin Kaepernick began his protests it wasn't to fix a system that is broken. It was to try to change a system that works perfectly for the people it was built to work for. And Win Doc rivers is crying. That's fear that's anger. That's hurt and everything that he says is one hundred percent. True. He and he said he should just get to be a coach but that's not just his responsibility. His responsibility is to coach. His responsibility is to parent. His responsibility is to teach is to educate not only other young African Americans but educate America about what it is to be a black man and it's not just what it is to be a black man. I. Got an opportunity to speak. At a talent whole here locally last week, and you know I was supposed to be one of the speakers that people could listen to and people could ask questions to and I ended up moving off the panel to the side to listen to other activists to listen to other people who had dedicated their lives to pushing the plight of black people in America Ford and what I learned was. A different level of hurt of murder of evil of discrimination of racism. Just within the black community. Right, we can talk about black men get treated a certain way black women, the most devalued gender or people on this earth who are always standing for black men who are always taking care them but yet are undervalued or devalued at every opportunity that people it. For. Black Trans. Women to be dying at an alarming rate but nobody's talking about it. Like that's the, that's the entire thing like we're just talking about social justice. We're talking about being able to stop a fight and go check on your children. Right. We're not talking about being able to walk into a church, South Carolina and kill nine black people. We're not talking about being pissed off about not had about having to wear mass shooting an AK forty seven that cops and being subdued and taken for your. Day Court. See we don't get those opportunities so we don't get those opportunities you down right? We're fearful but we're also angry and we're also hurt and win the Detroit Lions get together and they make a protest because don't get don't get it confused what the NBA doing a demonstration right now the organizations have taken control of the demonstrations of the protests, and now they're saying we would allow you to do this, which is why we don't talk about what? Happens pre-game anymore because what happens pre-game anymore we're used to what happens pre-game now is like, okay they can do this y'all can do this y'all can have this the reason we're talking about what doc rivers did because it was real because it was from his heart the reason we're talking about what the Detroit lions because it was a step away from the normal and because the normal is black people getting shot and US continuing to live life. That's the normal the normal me having this conversation I had with you guys about Jordan early on in the year and still having to have the conversation. Now a relive it because you're trying to give me to tell the story. So people understood it was like to be a black father that had a black how who was dealing with being called the N. Word who was dealing with racism who people would threaten weaponized the police in hopes that people would stop killing black people understand what's going on actually give some frigging help. But what you insane is that the people that ain't GonNa Change Ain't GonNa Change. And as long as we're in the system that is working perfectly for the people that are supposed to work perfectly for nothing will be changed. Because see now that they can control the demonstrations now that there is that now that they quite it's. Quiet at some of the looting, quieted some of the protests and change some symbols they feel like they don't have to change the system. And because right now we're trying to figure out this election. We're trying to get people to vote that people to understand vent their vote matters because it starts at the top. Right, we're getting drawn away from the fact that black people still getting shot that we're protesting that things are being set on fire that we work in the chain rule that the NBA is talking about not playing games when these people deserve to play games because they work, they hold frequent life to earn the right to play that game, but they may have to give that up not so they can be okay too. So other people can't do. This talking about bringing his ID and bringing his phone. That's 'cause don't nobody cared that he hits harder. Because before he was Vince Carter before you stuck his elbow in the room before he went between the legs it said it was over he was born black and that's not going to change. And I want it to be calm a wanted to sit here let Kimberly talk and let dom talk and let Greenie talk and just let you all understand in and maybe bring. So points some fats. There's some issues that people could grasping hold onto. But when we are asking for other people to look at black men, so they could feel were black men field and so they can understand what black making understand dominique put it right I wonder what it's like to be white because being white not only gives you the choice of being an ally. It gives you the choice of whether or not..
Luka Doncic clips the Los Angeles Clippers with game winning shot
"In Game three and their loss. The Dallas Mavericks left the game did Luca don changes in the third quarter? He left the game with an ankle injury. He was listed as a game time decision today in the Dallas loss in Game three. Christophe Cruising Had a very good game. 31 points. You picked up the slack Despite the fact the Mavericks lost by eight so entering game number four this afternoon. Question was what Look, um, play. The answer was Yes. Okay, so Dallas is going to get Luca on a bum wheel. But the good news is you still have. Christopher is English. Right? Well right before tip off, we all find out that Chris stop forcing. This is not playing for Dallas. He's got a knee issue. He's just out for the game. So look is playing Trey Burke gets to start and everyone's wondering. Wait. What just happened here? And then all of a sudden, Williams started to move before he had to go back and retrieve it on the left sideline. Jackson guarding him in the right hand on the cross over into the paint shoots off the left foot scores. Lou Williams 14 points in the first half. The Williams would have a saw and outstanding game for the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers lead this one by his many is 21 points. Believe the second quarter, the Mavericks actually started to make a run. And then all of a sudden it would be the Dallas Mavericks that had the Liebert try to sleep through a tip plateau by heart away to the rim along the right baseline spins Homer reverse layup. It's the first lead for the Mavericks since he was five before 5 73. Dallas was down as many as 21. They actually would take the lead and they would make the lead grown the screen. Luca drives right slot spend 3 60 Black right. Shoot scars in one. Stop it. Luka Dantchev 27 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists. We're not yet to the forth, and he has the Mavericks up seven. That's the funny part, John saying Stop it. We're not even close to being done yet. Luca don chips would have himself a day Dallas would go from down 21 toe up by 12. Then all of a sudden here come the Clippers. Jackson saved you from going out of bounds up the Florida Leonard. Transition. Three Having fun Yet Yet two two point point game game is is why why Leonard Leonard and and Luke Luke Adachi Adachi is is putting putting on on a a show show shot shot making making at at its its finest finest 1 1 19 1 17 at that point from under the rim of the left corner out of the deep left corner checks and buries it. On the hardest spot this chute on the floor. Welcome to the bubble N ba. All the big shots go down. It's exactly how it works. Al PJ in that fourth quarter very late in the closing seconds, each team would have a player fouled, taking the three pointer. Each team would have said player make only two free throws. We were tied at 1 21, and then we went to overtime. And over. Time is going to be our turning point brought to you by my computer career training for a better life. I'm just going to let the play the highlights role. They tell all the stories a minute five to go driving the paint. Lou Williams lays it up and draws a foul Lou Williams half a day. 33 points and possibly one more in a moment. He wasn't done. Sean 36 points off the bench for Doc Rivers Clippers again done the Clippers air trying to go up 31 in the series. Lou Williams goes for 36 past the dancing Down the rights of the lane, euro step shoots and scores off the glass Timeout, Doc Rivers, All right, look a daunting to undock down that pair. The Mavericks go back in front. But no, we're not done. Kids. Hawaiian, Leonard catches between the rings goes around to the right side fallout instead of three. Doyline, guarded by Keiji 13 12 off across over the paint. Don't look in the corner. Morris for three, buried it for the lead. Moke Morris senior Marcus Morris senior. They call a move. He knocked down a three he has played for the Knicks earlier this year, he knocks down the three the Clippers take the one point lead. It looks like the Clippers are going to go. Up three games to one Dallas inbounds in the front court. The first time they inbound in the front court. The Clippers used their foul too, given the extra session, so reload one final time for the highlight. You will now hear. 40 10 pointing 30 times, Maybe 30 times until Tuesday's Game five gets it into Dodge Systems out of half court to the top of the arc steps left three for the win. It's just wanted for the Mavericks as time expires at the end of every time 135 133 43 points for the jet I and the Siri's is tied to On believable. What do you say? Unbelievable. Luca. This is nuts. Look a dungeons the on ly player.
New York Knicks hiring Tom Thibodeau as next head coach
"So Tom Thibodeau is gonna be the head coach of the next. Here's our guy. Stephen A. Smith, Our first take host was on return to the MBA, and he discussed the positives and negatives. Of the Knicks hiring Fido. Nevertheless, nobody can argue that Davidow has the most successful resume it available coaches that one open market he's one about 59% of the games. You know the job you did in Chicago. We noted he sold it to the postseason first time in like a decade for like, 13 years. We know that he's with one could easily argue whether not Doc Rivers would be a champion as a head coach had it not been for top Thibodeau being his assistant. In Boston back in 2008. So all of those things come with He's got an incredible reputation. Terms of knowing the game of basketball of the entire Lesley committed to the game of back, eat, lives and breathes basketball day and night. Um and you combine that with the fact that again either defense with it, though, that a pluses minuses. The fact that in Chicago there were issues with Paxson and guard form in the general manager In Minnesota. There was an issue with the owner, Glen Taylor, and management, along with the fact that Jimmy Butler wanted to be traded went off Thibodeau, his former coach in Chicago, by the way. Was his president of basketball operations and to coach in Minnesota. And so as a result, you've got a home and believe that Tom Thibodeau has made the necessary adjustments. He's seen the error of his ways. Some respect player relations. And even relations with management and that this is a good deal because I'm here and it's a three year deal. Garrity fully guarantee the other two years, a partial guarantee in excess of about for $4 million. But in the end It seems to be a match made in heaven. Considering the fact that both will you, Wesley Elia Rose Go back over Quarter century with activity. He knows they've known him that long.

"doc rivers" Discussed on The Adam Schefter Podcast
"Every. White Guy in a Beers Jersey. In Knicks Jersey and he looked at me and he says Doc rivers said Yeah Aren't you from Chicago? Man I see. Yeah, he started Craig. Through the story I. Give The guy a big hug. Just walking down the street and I was like that's the quite that sounds right now. My task. WHO's GonNa win the bears quarterback competition. Some. Who Do you think well? You know who it is, but they didn't go get full for him to sit. And that's the way I look at it. Listen I think the best man is going to win, obviously, and then one thing, but nagy did you such an offensive genius I would be shocked to see them both at times, but I don't love. That's just in my life when you decide who it is, and that's who it is, but we have a superbowl winning quarterback now and we also have a very young quarterback right, and so you would think the super bowl winning quarterback. We'll probably get the not. And the other young kids will get the teach. And so in some ways you may win both ways. The way of looking at it and I think they hope it works out that when you did mention. That Philip rivers brought you into. Speak with the culture helped. Arrange that for the Ray Allen money story but I don't know the money store, so I got ask you to share the Ray Allen money in the ceiling store less stock, will it? It's a true story. We lost to the Lakers on Christmas Day in the regular season game, and when you play West East, you only played a west coast teams one time of year in their arena, and we laws and walking on the floor I felt like it was the first time. That our team was down. You just fill it like They knew they thought they were better than the Lakers. They lose to him and they were down so walked in the locker room. Why this came to me? I can't tell you, but it did I walk into the Locker Room I every player every trainer, every coach, every equipment manager to get out of hundred bucks and give it to him, and you know guys like looking around what they need under bucks. I didn't even talked about the game. Game I walked. I need a hundred bucks. Everybody on Kindergarten Eddie, you know. Kevin Garnett the greatest team leader in sports, but he has a very colorful way of expressing himself. You know the F.. Word is now verb an adjective Kevin Garnett, so he's bombing outlet. We're doing this and he's going back and for and I said I'm not. This is not an asset. This is you have to give me a hundred dollars, and so they all gave him his money. And I and there was a ton of. Money in my hand and I had my one security. Guy feel Mitch feel I want you to take everybody in the shower. Is the question you take them in a shower I grab one the system I said Hey. I want to hide this money, and he's like what I said I wanNA hide this body. We gotta figure out a place where they no one could ever find it, and so we finally looked at the ceiling panel. We felt like there's no plumbing and we put the money up in the ceiling. We closed the backup and the players all come here comes in and said. Where's the money? I, said the money got. What do you mean the money? I said the only way you can ever get this money back is we have to come back here and play and the only way we can come back here and play is we have to make to the finals? I believe you're gonNA. Make the final, and we're going to meet them here and when we come back here. We're going to get our money back and so we made it to. The finals went when we got off the bus. It was awesome you saw these. Clare Spreading to the locker. They were waiting. They I walked in that. Locker Room Strasse like. I was laughing because me and Kevin Eastman was one of my only knew where it was. We let him look for another five minutes and I got an. Kevin grabbed a broom lift up the ceiling panel fallout. I swear to God I. Didn't think would be there. I thought someone may have so little founded, and it came falling out, and it was awesome. Player the diving underground. You would think that I I'd love to get you make twenty million dollars in your. A hundred dollar bill. That's. Extra cash. How long was the money hiding in ceiling for their duck? Say Four months wow. Yeah Yeah. We played them in December, maybe longer. Yeah, we played them in December. Six months because our seven because the finals were June. But I wonder if there's any like ceiling tiles in Orlando that you have to scout out now to stick hundred dollar bills. They're inside your team here in the upcoming MVP season year. We'll we're all the funniest call I got? That story got out after it and I got a call from Gregg Popovich and duck and ask you a question with this. Sure you said you. Go into San Antonio. Locker Room said look around. I can find some money. Pop out to tell you. We only thought. The Lakers are GonNa win so no. That's outstanding. Well. Duck like I said I want to get you on.

"doc rivers" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"And it's it's not to diminish that but but it's a different sport I will agree with you. what it is yes and for whatever reason it's not looked upon that way for all we want is a reason yeah just for it to be addressed with a coherent reason why the idea now. I think in your profession of of how competitive it is between organizations wins front offices owners are competitive with each other. How much are you ever willing to share with guys you compete against. I've I've had coaches in a league who who are great admirers of yours who'd say I'd love to build a relationship with them. I really we WANNA see how he does it. But you know Miami's a little more close off their. You've been in Miami your whole career. You haven't been the different guys have different places because they've worked. If we're you know lots of people but I think there's always been a sense of like the Miami Culture has been a little more. We don't we're not opening. We're not swing our doors wide open to see you how we do it but sharing among each other like you said when you saw him at a clinic and you're going. I don't know maybe I don't not that. You're going to give something away there that he had scouted her scene. But how do you guys view that within balancing act you know I think it turns out to be relationships ships. As far as I'm concerned I don't go out my way to call share and I get calls. They get a lot of calls and so does slow but it is. You know it's it's a it's a telephone you know when you go to a clinic or something you share with whatever you're trying to share but it is a competition still too and I understand. That's another thing that I've learned. I remember we had Riley opened the door. We had a practice I had practice at your facility because rows at anticipation ship. We'd practice at your facility and we beat you. Guys and Tim comes up to me well. They'll be no more practicing at the Miami Him. Eat you know and that's how you feel like. I have things that I'll do. Anyone can practice in our facility. I'll do that but then I have things things that I am very quirky about you know earlier when I was very quirky about if I saw my assistants talking to the other systems like what are you guys talking talking about what possible conversations right now and this is are complaining about. Ah There's like I say we're not quite as iron curtain as we used to. Yeah we do open up our doors a little bit and you know we don't really necessarily go out of our way to network and kind of an introvert anyway and it just kind out of lines up during the off season. I like to go visit football programs. Just because it's different catches my interest a little bit more on it. You know you talking basketball with your staff and the other people all year long. I like seeing something a little bit different. I relate to them and and it usually ends up being not tactical discussions but it always comes down to personality management and and that's what I find you know probably most interesting about this business. What's the one or two days you guys ever spent outside of basketball whether it was at a football football facility you around ballot check in Boston spinal. You've gone all over. Nfl College football what was one you walk out of there said wow how or a dinner with somebody who was completely outside your element and said I got more out of that than I would have to for a specific reason I saw Pete Carroll uh twice just because not because he's winning super bowls actually before his first super bowl there and there's more just his personality as a so much different than me. I have mentioned I'm an introvert and I like to seek out people. That are a lot different so two years goes you know who is going to see in college. Football is going to see a Dabo swinney any and I'm friends with Butch Jones is very good friend of mine so these to compete against each other but he's such an incredible personality as man if I could have like one percent of so much better coach and ideal relate to my players better but I walked out of both of those not only amazed at thera ability to relate and just the one in nine personalities but also just how you you walk out of their thinking wow. This is my best Ashrat in two days later. They probably have a twenty five other people say to care for me as well just his energy who if you ask anyone. HP Carol Everyone's getting the wrong all coaching and there's no way you see that you know how Bella check with the one for me just because he's so different and I had a chance to speak a couple of times and I love that's phenomenal to there. I would always go to their offense of meetings right before the game I would he gives you great access and you would sit there and I remember the one game they basically said what they were going to they do and they did it and then one guy is outside of sports that just blew me away as Malcolm Glatt well. I had a meeting with him and I realize I said I'm not very smart. You know at that but his ability to kind of understand people was incredible. Docs Bo this was this was a lot of fun. I appreciate you guys doing this. We could do another hour on a whole `nother set of topics but I appreciate you guys doing it. It's data yeah yeah. I love getting spokesman.

"doc rivers" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"Very one welcome to another edition of the wards pod and something I've wanted to do you for some time with the podcast I hope to do more of it this season and moving forward getting some of the smartest most accomplished people in the game together to talk about their craft the league their journeys and we do that this week with two championship coaches the Miami Heat's Erik Spoelstra and the Los Angeles Clippers Doc rivers and our visit about the league the Celtic heat rivalry that really reshape the modern. NBA Pat Riley and both of their connections and influence with him and a lot more. I hope you enjoy listening doc rivers Erik Spoelstra podcasts as much as I think the three of us did recording it so let's get right to it. Doc Rivers and Erik Spoelstra Doc rivers Los Angeles Clippers coach our exposure Miami Heat coach between you two two two thousand four hundred and thirty eight regular season games coached fourteen hundred seventeen wins six. NBA Finals two championships for Erik Spoelstra won for Doc rivers and four won't pause now which I appreciate. That's the moment he goes absolutely. It's funny guys. We're in Chicago. NBA NBA coaches meetings are here all your peers here except for a couple who are off at USA basketball and it's funny to see you guys and I see some your competitors editor seeing each other in the lobby and guys the relationships in the league among coaches and what's interesting. Is You know you guys are the sandwich of you know. It's funny all the owners the players the fans like the only thing they all have in common is they all think coach better than you guys. I don't think the players think think they could be owners. I'm not sure the owners think that can be players but in a lot of ways your fraternity is like the frontline of taking it from. I'm above below outside your the clearinghouse for it and you kind of see it. I think with your profession that there is an empathy for each other. There's no doubt you know I've done it. This is my twenty I think twentieth or twenty first year in a row at least starting camp and when I look at all the people who have coming on and good coaches you know that have come and gone and look at some of the crazy firings that have happened in that time span you do you you. you start understanding each other. You know it's madness in some ways but it's a love in another way and sharing and having having people to share stuff with important yeah and he just look across the sideline signed in January and you can see the bags under everybody's. We're all gone through his grandma. We love what we're doing. Obviously it's unbelievable profession to be a part of but there is that empathy and it's not like we're in college. We're not recruiting against each other and it's it's not quite as cutthroat like that and it's really just the game that we can bond on this time of year and soon as we sat down you guys already talking about what what your teams are doing in the off season conditioning in. Eric and I were talking about this earlier like you hit Labor Day and what happens to your like Labor Day. He come out of that. You know you got the coaches meetings and campus starting this month. There's your body almost like you're rounding third heading for training camp as the sun hit you after Labor Day. Yes absolutely you know my letters. Go out earlier to invite all the players back at the Labor Day this year. It was a week later because our facility wasn't ready to receive them yet. We we're redoing our facility and it just takes on. It's like like the sign of the season starts. I know October fourth or fifth or whenever it is training start but I think for most teams most coaches and staff it starts the day after Labor Day. You teams get back together. your staff's get together and you all of a sudden take more serious tone about the rest of the summer you too. It's I found an interview. You did years ago. Doc both of you are kind of clinic rats and I know SPO- will whether it's your both in floor living together for extended period both coaching in Florida and and you were still in Orlando. Your family and I saw an interview with you're you're talking about. You're one of those state high school clinics and you look out in the stands and you see but you know high school coaches college coaches taking notes and I think you are in Boston at at the time and then you look out and who do you see with a notebook was a cisco because I thought that was the other one but it it is what we do and I don't. I don't think I've ever been at a game that I wasn't involved in didn't learn something where I didn't steal something you know. I tell told the story about against Cleveland in game seven. We ran a plated. My Son Austin's highschool team and I saw ought to weeks earlier and I was thinking that's an interesting play and you run it. It works you know so yeah. I don't think we ever stop on every turn it on on all off and you can never stop learning. Never Stop Learning this game early on it was more stuff and then as you evolve evolve. I think is amazing that James. It's funny you bring up the game because there was another one in Miami point nine seconds left game tied and you ran one of those circle offense. Rondo got the lobby and then over so pissed after the ray of Garnet Pierce basically basically thought it was going to go for sure to one of those guys and you're a lob to Rondo and then afterwards I read that you said that you cut them blaming yourself. Ah Trump pulled up a video guys. We're starting to scout on all the you've see we have something to get the Celtics time. We plan as as head coaches both of you have has either of you experienced anything as intense is what you went through and those. Celtic heat series rivalries and what's interesting is two thousand eight the Big Three's put together and Boston via trade and then Miami respond two thousand ten via free agency and Lebron hadn't gotten past Boston Cleveland. That was some of the thought of going to Miami. Miami and those two teams change the course of this league well. You know you're right. As far as the three you know it went from the one superstar let's try to win to two superstars and then it went to the threes amazing X. going back to two in some ways again to match up with all the teams and you know. I think we had the same situation I would say this. I I got Kevin Paul and Ray at the right time. Sometimes you need players at the right time and for me for them. It was the right time for them to try to win. You know they had all all three have done a lot of stuff individually they. They had a lot of awards but it was time for winning for them and so I got him at the exact time that they needed that then unfortunately when you know we you were starting to go down the other way they come in with with their version of the big three and now I felt facing them yeah what was interesting from our standpoint. I don't think Kevin and Paulin wanted to give them that. They they really wanted to beat them because they didn't want another big three. I've is interesting how how that all played out game six SPO- in Boston in two thousand twelve two thousand eleven you go to the the NBA finals you lose to Dallas. You come back. You're up to now. You're down three to you're going to Boston you coach. Game Mhm seven in the NBA finals. You've coached won a championship in a game five. I guess in a game seven in your life. Did you ever feel like you were coaching a bigger game that game six in moss down three to you know what's really interesting about that series to a game one we win probably about fifteen points and we felt like we're in control after one game and then game two boom all of a sudden it goes. Ot and we win that one just like you said we're too. WHOA and we go to Boston and it is an absolute dogfight and that one ends up going over time and we were actually up in the fourth quarter. Most of the fourth quarter combust came back and took that game just shows you how quickly serious can change and you feel like you're in control. We felt like we were playing basketball and it's two one and then all of a sudden the momentum shifts and game four is you can imagine in the garden they take full control and blow us out of that game and his to to going back. Miami and it's an absolute dogfight and they absolutely just took our hearts out in game five and it was tough it. There's a real competitive game and after being up to going into Boston and have overtime game. You think you would be in control of the series and we were down in the series. We all felt it. We did not practice the next day I had a team meeting and we just talked about are wise and why we put this team together and and we're going to have to face the team that we knew we'd have to go through and the Boston Celtics. Were that team for us. it was that team for Lebron before he got to us. It was that team even though we didn't meet them late in the play asked with Wayne we had enough built up dislike for that team and we knew we had to go through them and going into the garden. Yeah you could hear it. You could hear the intensity level when they knew they thought they could close the series. we all felt it but it was it was a calmness going into that there was a quiet confidence going into it and then when he saw Lebron's look. I know that that look is pretty famous by now. Yeah I think everybody just felt a higher level of confidence going into that game probably his biggest game of his career. When you look back because you know he had one yet right you know the year before they loaded Dallas and now all of a sudden you know he'd probably had the most pressure you I know because the title and so funding going into that game preparing for an onslaught from Dwayne and in the brunt because we just know who they are but the Lebron performance that night was was incredible as more shooting. You remember like the driving being in passing. We thought we were prepared for but we were not prepared for the way he shot the ball that night. Forty five points fifteen rebounds I think and then we come back and game seven and Bosh at brought him off the bench he'd been out since the Indiana series with those abductor strain and came back and gave us a huge fourth quarter three three three threes. Two threes in the corner just gave us an incredible boost going down the a stretch yeah. I went back. I was looking at the clips of Chris and a couple of Roth Lebron drive and and that was new that was a wrinkle you hadn't Chris suddenly shot a handful all season and you're said he was coming off the injury and that was really you always see him standing in that corner. Oh yeah because he had made threes and and you know listen early on. We didn't mind him taking him. You know but we didn't know he's. GonNa make them and made them over and over again and now you really. You've been there whereas a coach where you have to make decision. Do you change your coverage of the you believe what you think you know that he can't keep making them We changed our coverage a little bit in that game. I've been in games where I just decided. There's no way a guy can keep making them. I've Lost Dame's like that as well and he wasn't in the series series and I played the game before a little bit but this was really his first time to really get out nine playoffs since he was hurt when you're in a series like that and and you're balancing the idea of staying with what your core beliefs are and what you of how you played who you've been about versus an adjustment changing doing something is that as difficult decision for coach when you get deeper into a playoff series about vow where you go away from because it's that you tell your players. This is who we are..

I still give him crap because last year that that big game that the bear's loss al-set something he has never said oboe before the cake. He kept saying ooh boy. This is a big kid. Oh boy and i was texting them. Police stop saying that and and obviously the ball cap. I thought i thought that when pineyro hit last night of all the times for al to be able to pull out the do you believe in miracles in the talking ever seen so many people so excited over a field goal kick now i know because it was just so brutal the way they went out last year in the preseason was struggling to an <hes> and in the car and then nagy made a decision last night. Let's go for it on fourth and tenants that have a fifty one year yeah. When when do you know sometimes. Do you think some doc rivers here when you are coaching. I'm making this move on. I know i'm going to be second guessed if this doesn't work out. Does that actually go to your temple that you just you know. It's a tough decision and <hes> i think when you coach you accept that like you don't think about if it doesn't work you just think about it working and <hes> and then when it doesn't work sometimes because it doesn't <hes> you know you are but that's part of the job and if you can't you have to accept that like as as part of the job you really do you know what i'd tell my players <hes> the first day of camp out. Tell them in two weeks. I introduced my name. Hey i'm doc rivers and and <hes> i'm human <hes> and every decision i make is going to be to win.

You're trying to do it for the right reason. <hes> every decision then you're pretty free in your decision making so i'm keen to get your insight on what's going on with antonio brown and they were all on the outside looking in reading about it.

He's the head coach of the los angeles clippers and he's got leonard and paul george to throw out there on the court staples this fall good to see you. Doc rivers always nice rich. I mean seniors was attending you money. I think admit that i do believe that i had i had a good day. You did too short game. The day that i played with you was remark. Was i'm gonna say all thaba like while. I'm going to go there well well. That may just fill the soft touch around greens have to have good hands number times. I thought doc is out of his home. And then you pull yourself back in was really i lost my partner that a day was was rough though where i was going to bring him up well okay. Let's so let's talk about last night. What do you think what was that all about. It was awful but <hes> listen. I love their defense. You know that's who they are right. <hes> and you know at the first three possessions with the packers they had minus yards. Yeah you know so. I'm thinking the offensively because we changed coordinator so the defensively i was concerned. Yes <hes>. I <hes> that's going to be okay. <hes> actually think <hes> mitch i think will be fine. I i really do the first guy i'm amazing amazing. None of the quarterbacks <hes> <hes> i had <hes> dinner would golf and it told me they hadn't thrown one pass in the press. I've never heard of that court. He <hes> <hes> rogers didn't i mean brady rarely sits out preseason game number three. He did get a couple and right kristen yeah. He played a little bit but it's but pretty much coach. You'd rather the guy be healthy than absolutely the rust rather than rather than taking rust over an injury. You know now for sure <hes> but it's a great example that you can't no matter how you try to games are different now than anything you can do on the practice they just are <hes> and you could see that from both quarterbacks yesterday yeah i know and plus it was a new system for for rogers in a new coach in his ear new new way of going about his business. He had to be just out of body right. I mean you know he's such an such a veteran. I mean the the passing through the court for the touchdowns. If you know just threw it up and told the guy go get it you know but yeah. That's the new way fan are you. I mean you were you watching the game. At home. I was watching the game <hes> and then the first quarter. I didn't like the location because i didn't like our playing <hes> you in your physical location physically change locations and then in the third quarter <hes>. I'm sitting there with my girlfriend. Were watching the game at a bar okay and i don't like it again and and teller we have to move and go to another location like drive somewhere else was a restaurant in the back part and so i just thought if i changed my seating that things would change nothing changed. I mean you just kept looking at and we're stuck on three forever by the way we we didn't make a real nice ville right. That happens nice. So are you the same when you're coaching but i'm still completely different opposite of that coaching. I'm pretty much <hes> we're gonna do this. You know maybe because i have my own control. Is it true in l. and so maybe that's it. It's probably the way you know watching your kids. <hes> play sports you know i was. I was a little antsy that way as well. You know they have my hat..

"And he's in Johnson, though, he's I'm never in here. And when you mean, you never in here, you're the head coach doc you have a defense coordinator office coordinator, you run the team and from that day Ford. I said I'm doing this. Now, everyone told me you can't do that. Like, you can't do that. They didn't people would think you're not coaching the team. So, you know, I'm coaching the team, I'm coaching the coaches and the team now, but allows me freedom. And so it's funny when I hired Tom Timoteo the best day was the first day of training camp. You know, Tom, and I you know, we come from dig harder. And bet Riley, and Jeff Van Gundy, we all were. And so the first day of practice. We had already decided how we wanted to work. Tom starts putting the defense, and I walk out of the gym and Tom stops where you going in front of the players as like, I'll be back, and I just kept walking. So at the practices like what are you doing that? Like, I said, no, Tom, you're the defensive coach they need to hear your voice if I'm there, adding in the near not gonna hear you. And I said this is what I've been told to do by football coaches in. This is what we're going to do to tips get mom to get comfortable with that. I saw doing it in shoot arounds. And you know, but it allowed me to coach the team, and it it gave me freedom to really hone in the fence, really even more. So now because when tips made a mistake or now when Rex makes a mistake, I go to Rex and said, why did we do that? This is not what I wanna do. And it allows the players here more voices, and it gave me freedom. But you gotta be secure. Here to do that. And and I was young and did it, and that's the best thing I've ever done is it different. When an African American coach doesn't versa. Why coach? Yeah. For sure not doubt. I just think for I don't know why. But it is when I do it. Then that guys coaching the team, you know, or you know, you couldn't have done it with that. Or that? It's just it's just is doesn't make it. Right. No. You know, is it getting better? Yes. There's no doubt about that. But unfortunately, that's the way it is. And especially probably an African American coach who also played the game. You know, there's a lot of coaches when I took the job, then like my success, and that was fine with that the one thing I've not done, and I probably maybe should have or I don't know because I'm very happy. I never played the coaching be friendship gay. I did it would coaches in other sports, but I've never been one of those guys. Is to it. Ever relationship. Great. If you're an NBA, but I always have a release when my coaches, I don't need to have a relationship with every coach. And but I think because I hadn't coach, and then all of a sudden I'm coaching their coaching lifers early on just didn't like I think Chuck Daly helped me because he was the one pushing me to coach, and it was tough with them argue with him Mike Fratello helped me as well. But I was fine with that. Do you still have to earn it? And that's how I looked at. Remember, you said to me once and you said, listen, the ex players who come in have to learn the hours at takes Jess film and the guys who didn't play who know. Okay. My age is being the film room gone. Have come up that where scouting they've gotta learn to be able to command the respect of the players and some were both of them all meet in the middle somewhere. And they we'd each other out. That's exactly right in those funny. I had a long talk Kendrick Perkins yesterday and he wants to get the coaching. I think is knowledge be great. And but first thing I said, Bert. If you're not ready for the hours, and you're not ready to do things that you never thought you would do demeaning at times, you know, checking balls so some kids you're not going to be a coach if you're ready for the hours, then you can coach. But it takes time tight Lou. I made stay in LA one summer. I banned him from going home to us..

"Same thing when Toronto all these places and there's nothing wrong with a player being a free agent and saying, but this year, I'm here in every. Thought is brighter. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen. No. And it was I think there's a lot of blame for that. It's it's because he organizations are everybody's working toward it and their focus on it. And you have to be people in my profession. We're doing it. But the players are doing it to like they're having they're doing it. So this idea that there's always a lot of fingers pointed I think everyone shared everyone says the by the his the problem, though, is one of the big problems to me is like you have a free agent on your team. And he's let's say not the easiest to coach the bad organizations won't allow you to coach him because they're also thinking, well, we need him in the future the good organizations on this. Then if you don't go them, you're gonna lose them anyway. And if you keep them, then you kept him because you've coached them. And I think that's a fine line. I've had both sides of that. And when you side on wrong side of that, you're gonna be successful. How do you balance doc? Coach listen, the player stay the same age. You get older. I get older players. They don't get older right there. Just there's new group, and they're the same age in and you have kids who that helps because you sort of understand some things, but they're getting older, and they're your kids. You're all your starting to get older than you know, the youngest players come into the league. So how do you balance? What my principles are what I'm about. And how I'm gonna do it versus. I've got understand who they are. And there's times I have to make allowances for. Well, you have to understand who they are. You know, took daily always talked about communication. You know, one is dying days asked him if he could coach over what you do better. So the community, and I was like don't even you're the best communicator in the business says still not enough you can't communicate enough with your players. And so that's important. But you can't just communicate with them to the point. Where all you're doing is listening to them and being them. They have to listen to you too. And so that's the li- like. How much of them? Do you want to take and how much of you do you want to give to them and to teach them, and you do learn like, it's amazing. What you learn from some of these guys, you know, that their knowledge of the game.

"Us, you know, his numbers and his playoff forms as anyone else would have been looked on as a solid NBA players and the deal essentially throw throwaway late second round pick. Yeah. It was basically got him for nothing. And you look at the productivity there. It was a really good. That was a good deal. It was a great deal for us. And you know, but it was because of his my son, and I actually did I was too naive on that one to get the angst that it would create and it really did create. He also became the easy way out Mike if a player got cut or traded a move and wanted to get back at you. Well, their way was that threw me, well, the midtech also. And then it was too bad for him. It makes him tough skinned clearly, but also always had to explain his relationship. And you know, he wanted to always explain it. Well, you know, my dad, and I aren't that close. Did he had he felt like he had to do those things to validate himself, and I got that. But I think at the end of the day years from now. It's going to be great telling Austin stories about me coaching them in the family thing. You know, right now, we have our relationship is as good as it can be. You know, it's amazing how much we talk. Now. I told him the other day, we talk more now than we ever did when I was go to you. And he's like I wanna talk to you go just saw you every day. So it's it's overall it was right in between the reasons you wanted to be a coach, doc, the reasons that drew you to it, Mary, Pat Riley said you kind of late in your career, you're gonna you guys were going at one day, and he said you're going to coach some day, and you're like never ever want to be you. And you know, you'd think about that. But from why you wanted to do the job. How different is the job. Now do the same things. Hold true at the core has the job in this league chain so much that you almost don't recognize what you thought you were getting into. No, it's that's for someone's ever said. It's a great question. Why I wanted to get in to coaching was because I. Wanted to win. I wanted to be a winner. I had this driving goal to be a world champion. I prayed every night when I was a kid. I wanna been NBA champion never wanted as a player got close a couple of times. And I thought that's why if you ask me now that part is still there like I winning is. I just I love winning. I hate losing a loved one. But now the relationships the kids even some of the guys that I've coached that quite honestly couldn't stand me years later, they come back, and like when perk calls you or or durum strong 'cause you or or run though, which we had a rocky relationship in Boston that went up and down around the when I talk weekly now. Kevin Garnett calls you you realize. That's why you coach, you know, coach to be successful. You do everything in life to anyone that tells you they don't want to be successful is a liar. You know? But then the other stuff that makes. Coaching so cool. And for me, you know, watching share right now, you know, from where she was rookie to wear that now in his rookie year. But still riding him every day knowing there's days, he probably just wish he would go away. And I think he realized I'm not going. I'm going to stay on him. Because I do see greatness in him. And I do think it's my job and she's job to get it out of them. So that's why I still coach. Listen guys are terrible at taking care of their health. Whether it's a knee injury, bad back or something worse. Guys are usually more comfortable with rubbing some dirt on it than seeing a doctor, and I'm guilty of it myself.

Now, imagine yourself around it, and that's a different situation than almost that most of them Brooklyn similar. I think the only team similar, and you know, one of the things that I talked about early on in the front office with Lawrence and micro owner in those guys I told them that go back and look at her Landau, we had a chance of signing. Tim Duncan we he's decided to stay in San Antonio. We tend to sign I think Eddie Jones and he wanted to come at one point. There was a night where we thought Tim was going to say, yes, Tracy grant in any all at the same time we have money for two. Yeah. And we were literally sitting in the. Room. Okay. What sue do we want here? You know, and Tim was the easy one yet. But then it came down to Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill, and that was one heated discussion. But the reason they wanted to come in my opinion was because of that team that I mentioned that I love coaching when forty one and forty one they saw all those row players. They saw guys planned fast heart and fund, and they were magin themselves with all those row players and you hit on it. Right. I think most people think stars just want to join a bunch of stars. No stars would want to write row players around them to make them even better stars in. Clearly, they need another star with them as well. That's why I think this works. When's the last season? You felt like you enjoyed the job coaching is much as you seem to be enjoying yourself this year that that's a good question. You know, the first three years in Boston. What KGAN those guys they were great. I know a lot of things to go. Right. Cagey was a savior of that group because he wanted to win he'd had everything else. He was over him.

How will that fit? I don't know. But it's going to work. I mean, listen, they were the one team that could take the chance really when you look at it because of his injury. No one wanted to rehabilitate them. And then lose them, you know. And so I thought it was smart for him. And I thought smartphone Golden State and he's too good. Not to help them. Now. I don't know how. But he's just too good. I think is passing underrated. He's a great passer and that fits it does what they do. So it's going to help them. That's that's what concerns me is because to get book at his best. He needs to ball. Well, and they're the ball is hot potato. And I know he wants to win a ring. But in order for him to get that contract that he wants he's gonna have to put up numbers. Well, how does he get the numbers in that system? I don't think you need the numbers. I think in these the wins because if he plays and they win he'll get the number. If he plays just the numbers, and they lose he'll get the blood. But what about when people say well that was he was like that he was on his best behavior and Golden State. How can we be assured that when he comes here, and there's no caught your liking Goldens. Now, he's going to be on his best behavior. And then they'll bring them into a bad. Culture. And he I think, you know, listen, I hope it doesn't work. Just just explode. But at the end of the day, if it does work, you know, I think he would have learned a lot of things, and I think behaviors behavior like if he quote unquote, behaves himself, then he's learn how to write, and I don't think you regress. I think you learn how to win you become a winner. I don't think that changes are guys we're gonna take a quick rake, and we'll have more. Coach Doc Rivers still with us. Thanks for being here.

Nice win for them you'd beat Milwaukee. There's this team from Toronto the has his number two now to dog. He would he refused to address Kawai Kawai left San Antonio. He. I'm going to the cue word. On my team, your thoughts who looks like will come out of that uses tough as well. They're top heavy. I still think Boston is the favourite, but Toronto's right there. They really are. Then the walkie. I mean, there's some good teams of these right now. Fairly Phillies there too. You know now, they are Philly closer. Now. Everyone said before can they close? Can they close games, you know? Bringing Jimmy they do now have a closer that's gonna make them tough. That's Demi gives them value is his ability to score down the stretch. Will you saw Milwaukee beat them? There's no what do you think about the free? He's he's a mess is tough Durant. Lebron and the him just far as preparing for. I mean, it's funny unless a defensive minded guy, but there's times in the meetings talk that that'll work that's gonna work because they're that good. And he doesn't such different way.

Dance seventy eight and a half percent from the line career rivers. Yeah. Yeah. I'm ever. I'm ever playing Papa shot with Doc Rivers. Dominate. I don't I don't think. So you know, like Papa shots just a little game. Like, this isn't like really shooting though, it's different. But the I think dominated me don't low pop shop. Let me see can I get a couple of phone calls in here. Let's see Mike in Wisconsin leads us off. Hey, mike. What do you have today? Eight six six three spinal fuse to thirty five. I have to agree with Seaton's opinion on living bell. I, you know, I think most of the fans for the first nine weeks of the season didn't realize that they'll play out his rookie contract. He hasn't had a chance at free agency. Yet, you know, he's been take two years. You know, most these get to play and they can test the market, and you know, bell has been taking a lot of heat. I think from especially the fans that don't really understand. He hasn't even had a chance yet. You know? He hasn't been able to do a sign and trade or Pittsburgh hasn't signed him. And you know, you have to respect what he's doing for the year sitting here. Yeah. He made a decision but soda the Steelers. I I just don't think it's fair that we look at the Steelers in there the bad guys here their business. They ran it as a business. They were trying to get him for something cheaper. You franchise him. He's the one that said he was coming back, and he was going to have his best year ever. And then. Never came back in. But if he was told to take the deal, but he he decided that he didn't wanna do it. And that that's on him. But it doesn't mean that you can't criticize what his decision was. I think we look at him. Well, that's a mercenary look at what he did. He did it for his reasons, and we're going to see if it all plays out in his favor. The Steelers did it for their reasons. And we'll see how it plays out for them. You can have both of them that lose. He doesn't get that money in the Steelers flame out in the playoffs. That could be a scenario as well that they both lose. Yes. But at this seem like the team gets the benefit of the doubt where it's like, hey, this is a business. They're running a business over there for some reason. When a player does it it's personal. They're both business. He's a bad teammate. Now. I don't know if I want that guy in my locker room a guy who thinks that it does become personal with the player. Whereas the team it's like, hey, this is just smart business. I think it's both. They're both business decisions. The tricky part is you're bringing a guy back to your team where your offense lineman have already spoken about him. And this is a team that leads the league drama every single year. That's that's where it's it's personal. Because of that. And I look I think Pittsburgh did what they needed to do given the situation there and later on bell vol. I don't agree with it. I understand it. You know, he's basically saying I'm trading in fourteen and a half guaranteed for thirty thirty five guaranteed. I wanna make sure I get the thirty five guaranteed. I understand that avoiding injury. But imagine if he came back and all of a sudden, he says you can use me, but you can use me eleven times a game. Like see that's where it was going to be silly..
