You know, it's really a shame that the Los Angeles Clippers, led by their Head Coach, get a bad rap for being such great debaters. I suppose some might call that complaining, but maybe, for argument's sake, they are just fantastic at arguing? In fact, I think the reason that the Clippers never get a call overturned is based solely on the fact that NBA officials are sore losers. Hey stripes, maybe learn how to altercate so the Clippers can cleanse their reputation a bit.
Seriously though, nothing brings family together like verbally abusing an official. What you call bitching I call bonding. I bet Doc hires referees for Rivers family reunions just so they all have someone to team up against when a game of backyard badminton isn't going their way. Wouldn't be surprised if they have Austin invite his conservative white friend Brad over every Thanksgiving so that they can get some opposition for their political banter (and yes I just assumed that the Rivers are democrats, sue me). Where do you think their family stands on refugees? I don't know, but I certainly wouldn't want to be the one to find out. How dare anyone accuse Doc Rivers of nepotism. The only preferential treatment Austin has ever been granted is the ability to mock and question officials without censorship as much as his father. Hey, he had to get it from somewhere, right? It's just too bad that inherent trait has become contagious throughout the Clippers roster. Almost feel bad for them. They aren't intentionally whiney. It's an epidemic. A sickness that started at the top. Everyone hates the Clippers for something they can't even control. Are they contentious? Sure, but if we are talking about being disrespectful then the haters should be the ones looking in the mirror.
