Clippers coach Doc Rivers takes jab at Donald Trump, suggests sending NBA bubble plan to White House
Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers has never shied away from ripping United States President Donald Trump, and that trend continued on Tuesday.
While speaking to reporters about the NBA bubble and how zero players have tested positive for COVID-19 since the initial rounds of tests were administrated, the Clippers coach suggested that the league should send its plan to the White House:
“Maybe we should send our gameplan on to the White House.”

So far, it appears the NBA bubble plan down in Orlando, Florida is working. As long as players continue to wear masks, social distance and stay clean, there’s a strong possibility the 2019-20 season is going to be completed at Walt Disney World.
The Clippers are gearing up for what the franchise is hoping will be a long playoff run. LA is in second place in the Western Conference standings and will use its eight seeding games to prepare for the playoffs by knocking off the rust that was created after such a long hiatus.
With superstars and LA natives Kawhi Leonard and Paul George leading the way, the Clippers could very well win their first NBA championship this season. Most NBA pundits believe the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers will meet in the 2020 Western Conference Finals. The two teams will square off in the first seeding game.
Rivers is looking to capture his second title. He won the 2008 championship with the Boston Celtics.
