Chris Paul Reportedly Unhappy the Doc Rivers-to-Clippers Deal Fell Apart

With free agency fast approaching, the one man the Clippers don’t want to upset is their free agent-to-be superstar point guard Chris Paul. But according to Yahoo! Sports, by failing to land Doc Rivers in the on-again, off-again trade L.A. and Boston were attempting last week, the Clips have done just that: “Free-agent star Chris Paul pushed the Clippers to hire Rivers as coach, but will have to settle for Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw or Byron Scott if he plans to re-sign with Los Angeles in July. Paul is unhappy with the fallout over the failed deal, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night. Rivers plans to have a decision on Monday. He is choosing between staying with Boston for his 10th season or leaving for television. If Rivers does leave the job, the Celtics will still require compensation before he can accept a job elsewhere in the NBA.”

    Chris Paul has basically turned the Clippers around by himself not only with his play, but now with forcing them directly or indirectly to go after and get Doc Rivers. Can’t laugh at them anymore with Chris, Blake and now Doc Rivers coaching them. Hopefully he’ll get Blake to be more KG-like with his attitude even if KG himself won’t be playing there.


    It sounds like Paul’s public disappointment was a little premature, as now the reports indicate that Rivers will be going to coach the Clippers after all (assuming King David Stern doesn’t say otherwise.)

    this deal is done right? I mean, Doc is going to the Clippers. now if Paul will stay, that will be the question now.

    Yeah. How dare he be upset when a deal with the 2nd best coach in the league falls apart and he’s a free agent deciding where he wants to play? Just ridiculous.
