    Damn, not every team has to be blown up if they don't win a chip in year 1.

    While I do agree with you, I also think Doc has a history of underachieving with the Clippers at this point. I think he's a solid coach, but overall pretty overrated. And if the Clippers are looking for a scapegoat for losing a series up 3-1 to an inferior opponent, Doc is the obvious candidate.

    MDA coaching the Clippers would be very interesting to see. I think the Clippers have a treasure trove of elite defenders to make MDA look like an above-average defensive coach while being an even more elite offensive team.

    Having said that, I think race will 100% be brought up if this were to happen. The Clippers management wouldn't allow this to happen, even if it yielded a championship.

    How many teams have a coach that has lost twice after going up 3-1? None.

    How many teams have a coach that has lost THREE TIMES after going up 3-1? Just the Clippers.

    The Doc problem is not a "year 1" problem.

    Kawhi called out Doc's coaching when he talked about their IQ in how they were running the offense and defensive schemes.

    Doc is almost certainly gone, and Balmer should do it today to get into the coach shopping business.

    Mark Jackson would be hilarious for Warriors fans and Clippers haters.

    D'Antoni won't fit with Kawhi.

    Lue hasn't proven anything.

    Brett Brown would be interesting, but also hasn't proven anything.

    Can Balmer buy a coach from another team?

    They’ve got to find away to get someone at the PG/SG that can do a little of both. As good as PBev is defensively he’s a liability on offense, but the issue is that Lou Will and Shamet are the opposite of that.
    I think most of these are reaches. The Clippers have one of the most balanced rosters. They had Lou Williams, Harrell, and Morris all playing below their true market value. Sure they could probably use another true SG outside of Shamet, but that's about it. They have Jackson who's more balanced than Beverly and Doc chose not to use him.

    The Clippers with a 100% healthy team shouldn't lose to the Nuggets. Definitely fireable loss for Doc.

    Excuse me Lue won a championship with Cleveland as coach but D'Antoni actually wouldn't be a bad choice or one of the Van Gundy brothers could work

    Lue was an assistant coach ... LeBron ran the team.

    It’s so hard to play them together though. That’s the issue. Like playing Lou Will, Shamet is asking to be exposed. Harrell is good but can be exposed as well.

    I think regardless of who wins, this will be an * championship. No chance this would happen to the Clips if they had home court advantage like they should have in the playoffs. They had a much better home record(as do most teams). I am not going to be surprised if we see a Nuggets/Heat championship game, which would have never-ever happened under normal circumstances. Same goes for Milwaukee. They were 30-3 or something like that at home until the shut down. ZERO chance they'd lose to Miami with home court, ZERO.


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"
