NBA: The Doctor Is In?

After 7 seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, Head Coach Doc Rivers was Fired shortly after they blew a 3-1 lead in the 2020 NBA Western Semifinals vs the Denver Nuggets. When you see what the Clippers gave up to acquire Paul George, this Clippers regime to become a “Championship or Bust” Franchise overnight. Gave up multiple 1st Round Picks & impact players for the dynamic duo of Kawhi Leonard & Paul George. To most of the sports world, it came as no surprise that Doc Rivers was leaving the Clippers this season. He surprised the Basketball community locking down a 5 year deal to become the Head Coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. In my opinion, this experiment can go one or two ways. Either Doc can unlock the winning potential of Joel Embiid & Ben Simmons....or blow another 3-1 lead in the playoffs forcing GM Elton Brand to trade away Joel Embiid and build around Ben Simmons. The fate of Philly Basketball is in the Doctor’s hands.
