Max has to be contrarian to Stephen A for the show. And Stephen A has been pro-Bron for years since he had to be contrarion for Skip Bayless.


BOOM! that's it. It's all scripted and basically become a verbally analyst version of the WWF.

They would only get a fraction of the clicks/views if they did actual in depth analysis or even did something absolutely insane like agreeing with each other on anything.

So there's been 13 3-1 come-from-behinds ever...and Doc was the losing coach in 3 of them. That is crazy.

Think it's time for Doc to go back to TV....

No other coach has ever even had his team blow a 3-1 series lead twice, and Doc has now done it THREE TIMES lol.

I don't even think this was Doc's biggest collapse, quite frankly. Their collapse losing to Houston a few years ago was just shocking. Houston was so desperate in Game 5 in the 3rd quarter, getting blown out with Harden playing like complete basura, that they benched Harden. Took him out. Inexplicably, the Clippers folded in that game, and Houston went on such a run that they didn't even put Harden back into the game. Oh, and the Clippers were at home in that game. I can't even imagine how painful it must be to be a Clipper fan. I mean, in theory, I can understand being a Clipper fan, especially for those that were fans before they were gifted Chris Paul by the league. What I can't possibly fathom, though, is that they legitimately talk smack and crap to us Laker fans. Like, you've won nothing. You literally haven't made a conference final in your entire existence, and you have the gall to huff and puff? Their team is detestable and so are many of their fans, from my experience.

They can build as many arenas in places the Lakers used to dominate 30 years ago, to try and get that Laker allure. But that stat, 16 to 0 speaks volumes.

If you now add into NBA Finals, NBA Conference Finals stats. It is so ridiculously one sided.

16-0 NBA Rings LA Lakers
I am sure NBA Finals is something like 31-0

Lakers have won the West alone 31 times.

It is easy to talk the talk, but the Lakers went through a lot of (bleep) the last 8 years. Kobe retired, and his last 3 years were post-achilles injury where he was not himself. DAntoni-Mike Brown-Luke Walton as head coaches. A complete rebuild. Ownership issues between siblings after Dr Buss died. Even then, the Lakers have gone back to the West Finals in that 7 year period, and the Clippers still can not get past the SFs. The Clips have in that time had CP3 in his prime, Blake in his prime, DAJ in prime, and now Kawhi, PG13 and others in their primes.

I remember as a kid Bob McAdoo on the Buffalo Braves, the year he won the MVP. They moved to San Diego and became the Clippers, Bill Walton played with them for awhile, even when they went to Anaheim, and eventually become renters at our facility. I think for years I treated them like the Chargers, Angels, Bruins, local teams, not my favorites, but I wished them well, anytime they were not playing us.

But when some of their very high draft choices started playing well, and we either played poorly or when in a tailspin, an awful lot of smack started coming from the Clippers. The Clippers started winning, and it really got them to feel entitled, and they treated us much worse than I think we ever treated them. And if we were smug, maybe its because we had been used to winning championships and playing very well in multiple seasons.

I think of how Golden State sucked (mostly) for about 15 years, but whenever the Lakers played up their, they were very respectful, especially to Kobe. When they became great, I never begrudged them their success, and I think aside from maybe Draymond (LOL) they handled being "good winners" very well.

The Clippers have been disjointed all year long, despite having two of the top 20 players in the league in KL and PG. Their glue guy was Beverly and that snide attitude did not serve them well. I think guys like Lou and Montrell seemed most affected by it. I think Montrell really hopes he can get good money elsewhere and move on. They really need a veteran who can give them a different voice than Beverly, and their two big stars are not the kind of vocal leaders that inspire the rest of the team.

But hell-yeah, I'm glad to see us rising and watch the Clip-joint fall back to earth. Raising another banner, maybe in a pregame ceremony before a Clipper game would strike just the right tone.

Not that I am gloating the Clippers losing

They deserve all of this slander. When you troll and talk that much (bleep)...karma is a (bleep).

The gap between the Clippers and the Lakers is one is going to the WCF and the other is going fishing. I'll give you 3 guesses as to who's going fishing, the first 2 don't count.

What is Doc’s strength as a coach, other than (seemingly) being well-liked by his players? Most other big name coaches are known either as offensive or defensive masterminds.

Doc looked good in the 2008 finals, but it isn’t clear to me how much of that was really Thibbodeau.

Doc was good when there're floor general(s) on his teams. his Celtic teams had KG and PP, and his early Clipper teams had CP3. KL and PG are not those leaders. like everyone's been saying their games flourish in a right environment when they don't have to taking upon the leadership roles.

HAHAHA! True!

What PG13 needs is tough love: from a peer!! He's never had it (until he went to the Thunder and we know how quickly he folded and got the heck out of it). As good as Kawhi is, he aint the one to give PG13 any love: tough or otherwise...

These stories give me a real pep in my step today.

Quote:
Early in the second quarter, a struggling George had committed two careless turnovers in less than a minute. The second mishap was a half-court pass to Harrell, who was near the paint but surrounded by Murray and Michael Porter Jr.

Murray picked off the pass. Seconds later, the Clippers called a timeout.

Harrell approached his teammate about the risky pass, with George not taking responsibility and arguing the pass could have been caught had Harrell made the right play, sources said.

This set off the NBA Sixth Man of the Year.

Harrell responded with something along the lines of, “You’re always right. Nobody can tell you nothing,” and expletives were uttered from both players, sources said. George eventually toned down his rhetoric, but a heated Harrell wasn’t having it. Teammates began clapping on the sideline, in part to disguise what was going on and in an attempt to defuse the situation. The incident deescalated shortly after as coach Doc Rivers took his seat to go over the game plan.
