I wrote a commentary about Doc Rivers and his failing legacy with the Clippers.
He has not been able to elevate this team above their junior varsity status the way everyone thought he would, and with each successive loss — be it a game or a player — it becomes clear that it’s time for Doc Rivers to go as both a president and a coach. His decisions in both capacities have been questionable at best, and destructive at worst.

All those jokes about the Golden State Warriors blowing a 3-1 series lead to lose the 2016 championship can come to an end now. In a most beautiful and poetic finish, the Warriors, who came into Monday night’s game leading the Finals series 3-1, pulled off a flawless victory and won the game with a 9 point lead, leaving no doubt that they are the champions.
