    I just want to extend my gratitude to Doc Rivers, a man who is clueless when it comes to running a bench unit. This is twice now he has let go of a big man who can actually play, Hawes and now Josh.

    Seriously though, I've seen some stupid things, but the way he is running the Clippers is just incompetent and the national media praising the Lance dance and Josh addition was just LA drooling. So, how long the love for Doc will last?

    Hey it's good to see you happy about Smoove but this thread is kind of ironic considering what your stance was a few days ago ;)

    Was watching Cavs Clips the other day, Cavs started hacking DAJ. Did it 5 times, DAJ missed almost all 10, Cavs scored 4 possessions out of 5 to go from leading by 6 to leading by 16ish. They hacked DAJ again (6th consecutive time), Doc looks around in amazement, completely stunned that they are still hacking.... really Doc??

    Pretty dumb move from Doc, even if he wanted to set Smith free he could've traded him to an EC team. I guess he was hoping Smith would implode the Rox the same way the Clips struggled, or maybe he thought the Rox was done since we can't even break even.

    Well I predict we'll them and clobber them again in the playoffs lol.

    I hope we end up in the 4th seed, them in the 5th and we beat them in the first round. JSmoove goes for 20/10/2/2 for the series.

    Or whatever would need to happen for us to beat them in the second round instead, but its too early for all that.

    Class move by Doc so Smith didn't have major family issues moving again.

    Clippers would've been better off pulling a Steve Nash having Smith play golf for the rest of the season versus sending him back to the Rox. Could def bite the Clips in the azz AGAIN come playoffs. Dumb move

    Doc actually did us & Josh a solid. Which is the reason he's well liked among NBA circles. You guys are calling him a idiot but can't understand why nobody thinks that highly of Daryl Morey. Doc didn't treat his player like a asset. Hard to process I know:rolleyes:

    Give us back Cole Aldrich and take Capela. Kidding but still the flow of our offense was much smoother when Smoove at center.

    Pop hates him because he thinks that Doc was gunning for his job behind his back when he was a commentator... and the nepotism allegations has not helped his rep as a GM at all.

    Still Doc's more respected in NBA circles than Morey is. Players will play for a Doc Rivers ran team before they play for us. So if he's a idiot than what is Daryl Morey? According to your standards of course

    Doc is way overrated but is more likeable than Vinny Del Negro.
