Forward Joe Ingles, who is trying to make this Clippers team, is from Australia and he speaks with a heavy accent. Coach Doc Rivers on Thursday was asked if he sometimes has difficulty making out what Ingles says. Rivers had some fun with his reply. “There are times because, it’s English, I think, right?” Doc Rivers said, drawing laughs from reporters at the team’s training headquarters in Playa Vista. “But it’s English spoken from Australia. So, yeah, there is clearly things … and I guarantee you, there are things I say that he doesn’t understand. It’s a two-way street. And I would think that would be to his advantage.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer purchased the Los Angeles Clippers last month for $2 billion, and now he’s hinting at some changes for the basketball team. Ballmer’s not dropping coach Doc Rivers or any star players, but he is planning to get rid of iPads in favor of Windows. "Most of the Clippers are on Windows, some of the players and coaches are not," explains Ballmer in an interview with Reuters. "And Doc kind of knows that’s a project. It's one of the first things he said to me: 'We are probably going to get rid of these iPads, aren’t we?' And I said, 'Yeah, we probably are.' But I promised we would do it during the off season."
