The Clippers... I wonder if NBA analysts are sleeping a bit on the changes they've just made. Adding Doc Rivers as head coach and VP of Basketball Operations is a big deal. Plus today Doc added former Suns head coach Alvin Gentry as "associate" head coach. This is in addition to the three assistant coaches Doc brought to LA from Boston: Armond Hill, Kevin Eastman and Tyronn Lue. Lue is young, but he's got two championships under Phil Jackson and brings that to the group. Last season the Clippers had the 4th most productive bench in the NBA, and this season they have added J.J. Redick, Jared Dudley and Darren Collison. Neither the Thunder or the Spurs have improved themselves this much both in players and coaches -- nor have the Grizzlies or Warriors for that matter. Wouldn't it be something if the Clippers were competing against the Heat in 11 months?
