Clippers coach Doc Rivers didn’t cut corners when speaking about the state of the Los Angeles Clippers following alleged racist comments from team owner Donald Sterling.
Rivers spoke to reporters Monday, saying that he passed on the opportunity to talk to Sterling after the owner reached out to him. Rivers was also non-committal about returning to the Clippers beyond this season.
Two key items from Doc Rivers presser 1) he’s convinced it’s Sterling’s voice on tape. 2) He would not commit to coaching #clippers in 14-15

The NBA announced that it will have a press conference in New York on Tuesday to address the Donald Sterling situation. Rivers said that he and the Clippers will respond sometime following the NBA’s announcement.
