Warriors guard Shaun Livingston will never forget how coach Flip Saunders helped revive his career. Livingston had gotten waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder before the Washington Wizards signed him in 2010. Saunders gave him more than just a shot to play in Washington. Livingston became a regular starter with the Wizards and for the first time since suffering his major knee injury. “After playing the season with him, I just felt like I understood the NBA game, and that was the first time I really understood it,” Livingston said of Saunders. “I always had a high IQ, but just as far as time and score and just as a pro, he was a guard’s coach. Flip gave me the opportunity to implant me back into the NBA. Just to be somewhat relevant again…he gave me an opportunity. He blessed me an opportunity and allowed me to a chance to make the most of it.”
