Is Doc Rivers overrated?
That’s what NBA fans are asking aloud about the Los Angeles Clippers head coach Thursday, following their loss to the Denver Nuggets in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinals series. Intrepid statisticians and graphics producers were quick to point out Rivers’ place in NBA playoff infamy after the Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead
Those numbers look bad for Rivers, but things become worse once you factor in his teams’ losses in series in which they lead 3-2.
Although Rivers accepts blame for the Clippers’ failure to meet their NBA Finals expectations, that doesn’t stop critics, particularly Los Angeles Lakers supporters from enjoying a field day at his expense.
