What finals matchup would you want to see not involving your favorite team?
If you could pick a finals matchup to see, BUT it doesnt have your favorite team in it what would you want to see??
Me: Favorite team is lakers, but if theyre not in it Id love to see San Antonio vs Boston!
Duncan vs Garnett just like old times
Parker vs Rondo
Allen vs Ginobli
2 great coaches is Doc Rivers and Gregg Poppovich
What about you?
Answer: OKC vs Boston. My 2 favorite non-Lakers players are probably Kevin Durant and Rajon Rondo. I like a Westbrook vs Rondo matchup, I like the "youth vs experience" angle.
I don't want San Antonio in it, because that just helps Duncan's case as the greatest player of the 2000s, and I want Kobe to hold that crown.

Doc Rivers trade: Clippers reportedly offered 1st-round pick for ...
The Clippers have called the Celtics with an offer on the table for the rights to Doc Rivers.
why is no one talking about the celtics walking off the court with out shaking hands?
when lebron did it every one went crazy and got on him for it.. the whole celtics team except for 3 (doc rivers, delonte west, ray allen) walked off with out hand shakes.. why is no one saying anything now?
Answer: A few people asked questions about that in this section right after it happened. I guess people stopped talking about it because a few days went by. I always considered Ray Allen and Doc Rivers classy, so that didn't surprise me, but I was surprised by Delonte West and the fact that he and Lebron even had a moment where they hugged and exchanged pleasantries.
Reports: Celtics, Clippers reach agreement on Doc Rivers deal | The ...
The Celtics and Clippers have agreed to terms on a deal that will allow coach Doc Rivers to leave Boston for Los Angeles, according to multiple reports. Yahoo! Sports reports that the Clippers will “send an unprotected 2015 ...
The Clippers might strike a deal to land KG and Doc Rivers. What are your thoughts on this?
All 7 Clipper fans in existence are probably collectively jumping for joy right now.
As a Lakers fan, I can admit that this is potentially a very good move for our little brothers. The Clippers and Chris Paul arent on good terms right now, thanks to Donald Sterlings comments about Griffin and Paul. Their hope is that, by bringing in Rivers, they could get Paul back to LA. Trading DeAndre Jordan is also a smart idea because it opens up room for Dwight Howard, who went on to record to say that he wants to play with Chris Paul.
If the Clippers can make this deal happen, theyll be in very good shape for years to come.
Loyal Pistons fan - I dont see whats so audacious about trading a 37-year-old over-the-hill player and a coach who doesnt even want to be there. Youre acting like the Celtics are trading them for peanuts. DeAndre Jordan, 24, is pretty good relative to other centers around the league, and the Clippers will also include two 1st-round picks. If you actually read the article, you would have known that. This is very even trade, imo. The Clippers main goal is to retain Chris Paul and bring in Dwight Howard. Doc Rivers can talk both of them into signing with the Clips.
Also, LOL at you saying: "not going to happen, by a long shot." If theres no shot at it coming to fruition, an article wouldnt have been published about it. Im not guaranteeing that it will happen, but to say theres no shot at it happening is plain ridiculous.
DC- Ive never said that Griffin will be traded to the Lakers. What are you talking about?
Loyal Pistons fan - I know the illiteracy rate in Detroit is, like 85% right now (no offense to Jake and K-Dawg), but try reading what I had written. Bringing in Rivers is the Clippers best chance at retaining Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Thats why it makes sense for the Clips to pursue this trade.
If you fail to see how this trade benefits both sides, you dont know anything about basketball.
Do you know anything about luxury taxes? A team CAN go over the cap, so long as they pay luxury taxes. The Lakers are doing it every year.
Answer: It'll improve them as a team, both on defense and on offense. And it will make them a true championship contender, as a matter of fact. The Clippers are in win-now position because if you look at the West, some teams from the West COULD be on their way out of championship contentions by next year, like the Grizzlies and Spurs.
As we saw in their postseason series against the Grizzlies, the Clippers relied too much on Paul handling the ball, and making plays for his teammates. When Paul was NOT on the floor, the Clippers struggled. DeAndre Jordan, even got some negative compliments from former Grizzlies coach, Lionel Hollins, saying he was NOT impressed with Jordan as a player, especially on the offensive end.
But now, with Garnett, their potential center (I assume that's where they will play him), it gives them a guy who is a tremendous post player as well as a guy who is great on the defensive end that brings great energy every night. Marc Gasol just dominated Jordan in the series but he'll have a much tougher time with Garnett. And I believe Blake Griffin will listen to Garnett, and that will make him a better defender. Pierce SHOULD also help them out on offense too and on defense like Garnett. Now, they have three guys who they CAN go to on offense and it will no doubt take the pressure off of Paul to do everything on offense. Paul CAN roam freely on offense now because Garnett and Pierce are both tremendous passers. Plus with a great coach in Doc Rivers, they COULD make the NBA Finals next year.
If they CAN get a deal done, the Clippers are "true" championship contenders. Their team will be very balanced all-around. Great starting lineup, great bench, and a great coach equals a "true" championship contender.
But like you said, they COULD very well trade Griffin to the Lakers but I heard the Lakers do NOT want to do a sign-and-trade currently so I am currently just assuming Griffin is on the team and will play for the Clippers next year.

A.Doc Rivers is a good coach
B.He Just has good players
Ya Mike Brown was about to be fired too
Ya i do agree they need Avery Johnson Mike Brown isnt a good coach at all
Ya i do agree they need Avery Johnson Mike Brown isnt a good coach at all
Answer: Well he won Coach of the Year on the Magic, not every coach has had success on 2 teams. That means it isn't a fluke, and Doc can coach.
EDIT: Id fire Mike Brown right now.....mark my words Cleveland won't win until they let him go. With Avery Johnson at the helm they would have a title by now.

Coach Doc Rivers fate if the Celtics lose in the first round against the Bulls?
Do you think Doc Rivers will have the same fate as Avery Johnson did with the Mavericks a couple seasons ago?
Avery went to the NBA finals (granted he didnt win) and the next season lost in the first round of the playoffs, and was fired the next day
Answer: No, he'll still couch for Celtics whether they win or lose. Doc's a great couch. I would the game mosly depends on the players. Garnett and Lowe being injured has hurt the celtics quite a bit.

Doc Rivers Picked a Boston player for the All star Reserves?
So Doc Rivers Head Coach of the Boston Celtics picked the All star reserves to day and one of the players were Paul Pierce i rememebr the nba saying that the coach is not allowed to pick one of the players here:
The 14 players selected -- seven each from the Eastern and Western Conferences --coaches, who were asked to vote for seven players in their respective conferences -- two guards, two forwards, one center and two players regardless of position. They were not permitted to vote for players from their own team.
Answer: You're correct in that coaches cannot vote for their own players. That Paul Pierce made the reserves means that the other Eastern Conference coaches selected him.
Maybe you're thinking of baseball? In baseball the All Star coach picks the reserve players. It isn't that way in basketball.

What do you think about Doc Rivers comment about his teams "title defense" from last night?
I highly respect Doc Rivers and his coaching style. Last night he said that his Celtics original starting five (Perkins, Garnett, Pierce, Allen, Rondo) never got to defend their title since Garnett was hurt last year and Perkins was out in Game 7. I think that was a pretty whack and cheap comment. You got beat by the better team. The Lakers. Straight and simple. You were up 3-2 and had a chance to defend your title.
Answer: Well, with his logic. that means the title in 2008 doesn't count either since the Lakers didn't have Bynum. So see, both sides can play this game all day. Bottom line is, lakers won. No excuses.

Who do you think is coaching the 2016 team for USA basketball?
It could be Doug Collins, Gregg Pop, or Doc Rivers. all of them are hall of famers and elite coaches.
Answer: It will hinge on any possible "age limit" rules that may be put in place and the direction USA Basketball wants to take with the program, even if the roster rules do not change. But there will be a major overhaul of the roster and it may be time to have a "full-time" coaching staff.
