NBA: Playoffs-Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles Clippers

Clippers CEO says Doc Rivers will quit if Donald Sterling remains owner

The Los Angeles Clippers are embarking on what will likely be a long, arduous offseason for them as the organization attempts to move on from the Donald Sterling era and find new ownership.

And today’s proceedings in probate court over the proposed sale of the team were very interesting, as Clippers interim CEO Richard Parsons relayed what looks to be an ultimatum from coach and team president, Doc Rivers.

And Parsons wants Rivers to remain with the team, so it’s clear where he stands on the issue.

The Clippers players are also standing by Rivers, which comes as no surprise.

So it looks to be a “him or me” thing, as it appears Rivers wants to start fresh and move on from the old regime.
