Los Angeles Clippers VIDEOS
Rivers on Monday was queried as to whether he believes his players are being too demonstrative on the court with the referees. There was no diplomacy in his response. “Probably, yeah,” he said ahead of his team’s game against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center. “Well, (Sunday), I think as a team we were, for sure. We’ve got to get to playing. You know, I’ll do all the antics if they need me to do them. “But I just think the players have to play. I just find it very difficult to play and ref. I think that’s really hard to do. I think we’ve gotta pick one or the other.” Los Angeles Daily News
Jody Genessy: Clips coach Doc Rivers said LA wanted to re-sign Joe Ingles after waiving him. They were bummed Utah got him. "We took the gamble and lost." Twitter @DJJazzyJody
Ralph Lawler: Crawford (ribs) returns for Clippers tonite v Utah. Davis (groin) due back Wed @ GSW. Jazz-Clips tip at 7:30 on Prime Ticket @FoxSportsWest Twitter @Ohmeomy
Jovan Buha: But he admitted that there indeed was some miscommunication with him and Doc on his level of interest in re-signing. I'm just guessing here, but it seemed like Collison was implying he wanted to re-sign with Clips for full MLE, but they weren't interested. Twitter @jovanbuha
Who could forget the former NBA commissioner citing "basketball reasons" for vetoing the trade that was supposed to send Paul to the Lakers, Pau Gasol to Houston and Lamar Odom to New Orleans in December 2011? The Lakers appeared to have acquired their most dynamic point guard since Magic Johnson, but then small-market owners raised a racket, Cleveland's Dan Gilbert in particular calling the trade a "travesty" in a lengthy letter to the league. David Stern said no. The deal was off. "Sometimes you want to say, 'Dammit, David Stern,'" Lakers Coach Byron Scott said before Friday's game. "When they made the trade, before David kind of X'd it, I was like, 'Wow, that's going to be fantastic.'" Los Angeles Times
