If I’m rooting for the Clippers, it’s because I’m rooting for Doc Rivers. But if I’m rooting for Doc, aren’t I also rooting for Donald Sterling?
But if I’m rooting against the Clippers because I’m rooting against Donald Sterling, then I’m rooting against Doc.
With the Celtics, Knicks, and Lakers all out of it (For the first time in NBA history, not a single one of them has made the playoffs.), I’ve got nothing left but the Spurs and Doc Rivers.
Heck with it.
I’m not going to let Donald Sterling make me root against Doc.
(Note from a bemused Celtic fan: I still don’t understand how a team can trade a coach.)
