    Guess something had to give after they blew that 3-1 lead against the Nuggets.

    After all the choke jobs they have had, with 2 different versions of the team, it had to happen.

    Paul George dated Doc's daughter years ago and cheated on her with a stripper.

    .......probably not an awesome working relationship there.

    Once the Nuggets lost to the Lakers, this was inevitable. I think he could have been given a reprieve if the Nuggets had beat the Lakers, like a "the Nuggets were just really damn good this year" kind of reprieve.

    I can't believe it actually happened. There are the obvious reasons for it like the second round failure, blown 3-1 lead, bad chemistry, etc but I didn't think they'd actually do it.

    Chris Haynes might be the only reporter who has an in with Kawhi and his camp and he said Doc was a big part of him signing with them. They probably don't make this decision without running it by Kawhi first but it's still interesting. Kawhi can opt out of his deal next year.

    Had to change something but I don't think the Clippers will win unless they get an actual point guard.

    The results weren't there in the playoffs but can't deny he's a strong coach and overall a solid guy of class.

    Sucks to see him fired. Hope he lands on his feet soon

    hard to believe teams are still lining up to hire this guy

    probably the most overrated coach in the NBA. won a title 12 years ago and has been surviving off his "reputation" since then. last season was his only good coaching job with the clips

    No shock he was canned. Couldn't get the Lob City team anywhere and still couldn't do anything with this new group.

    Couldn't agree more. & that title was buoyed by the big 3.

    JVG would be a great hire IMO. He managed to drag an average Knicks team to the finals, granted that was 21 years ago but hes at least stayed in the game as an analyst and coached T USA recently. Good veteran guy to have around.

    Lue's only claim to fame is co-coaching the Cavs to a title. Not convinced he'd be a great pick for the Clips.

    In his defence Kawhi and George didn't just shit the bed, they shit all over everything.

    I'm shocked that he's been fired to be honest. He was terrible but I thought he was safe because of all the BLM stuff. I mean there wasn't a single analyst that dared to call for his job.:laugh:

    PG cheats in the man's daughter and then gets him fired.

    What did DR ever do to PG that required all this hate..

    They could replace him with a freaking tree stump and improve. Feel bad for anyone that ends up with him.
