I don't even know what stance to take on this, because I honestly don't care what DeAndre's reasoning was for coming back to Los Angeles. I'll save the speculating for Mavericks fans. I knew before I clicked on Dwain Price's twitter handle that he was in someway associated with the Dallas. He would have to be to continue to dwell on this story. I'm not saying Doc Rivers daughter didn't have contact with DJ, but to say she was the driving force behind his indecision seems like a little bit of a reach to me. I'm sure the fact that Doc Rivers turned DeAndre into a player worthy of a max deal, the closeness of the Clippers locker room, and the chance to play on a contender that he was already familiar with had a lot more to do with it.
However, if Doc did employ the use of his daughter to change DeAndre Jordan's mind then it appears he is the master motivator we all hail him as. Everyone knows the best way to get a man to go back on his word is to put some pussy in front of him. Hell, Callie Rivers has already made her way around the league by dating Paul George and Kyrie Irving. Might as well make the most of her proclivity to basketball players. If you aren't using all the tools at your disposal are you even fulfilling your job description as a Head Coach/General Manager? No tool is more at Doc Rivers disposal than his own child. If this report is true, which I have a hard time believing, than you really got to feel bad for Austin Rivers. He had a huge hand in two playoffs victories and he still ranks third in his family in terms of his importance to the Clippers. Enjoy that bronze medal Austin, hopefully your sister's hard work will give you a chance at getting your hands on some Gold next summer.
