In the team’s final game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Rivers inserted forward/center Montrezl Harrell and pulled Jordan out of the game for the final time of the season, and potentially, for the final time as a member of the Clippers. Jordan and Rivers then shared an embrace; a lengthy, 10 second hug with pats on the back and it was clear some emotions were coming out in the process. “I basically told him I love him,” explained Rivers. “DJ’s been great for me. We don’t know what he’s going to do and that could possibly be the last game. I hope not obviously. DJ and I are very close. I challenged him when I took this job. I asked him to be one of the best defensive players, once of the best rebounders, and he took that title and ran with it. I’m just proud of him. He’s like a kid to me.
“I put up with about 25 years worth of dismal Clipper seasons and have been thrilled to watch their success in recent years as one of the NBA’s top five teams. Maybe the loss of Chris Paul was unavoidable but the trade of Blake Griffin and attempted trades of DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams made no sense at all. “I don’t want to endure another long stretch of playoff misses in the hope that some future draft pick turns out to be a star. The Lakers have had top draft picks for three years and still can’t make the playoffs.”
5. Excluding you and your teammates, which pair of current teammates would make the best ‘NBA Jam’ duo? Curry: If it’s not me, I probably gotta roll with Steph and KD [Kevin Durant]. That’s a legendary duo. Reigning champs. That’s a good one. Al Jefferson: James Harden and Chris Paul. DeAndre Jordan: That’s tough, man. I mean, probably Steph and Durant. Brook Lopez: Obviously, it’s tough to go against the Warriors now. KD and Steph, something like that. I mean, I guess I would be a little biased since I played with Run TMC in the old “NBA Jam” game, but they’re the first thing that pops to mind. They’d definitely be good. Iman Shumpert: Steph and Durant. For sure.
