Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
My honest, tweet-length opinion on Doc Rivers:
He has a lot of positive traits as a coach. The 2008 title wasn’t strictly an accident or byproduct of the talent. But he’s stubborn as hell and his X’s and O’s haven’t evolved in years. The Lakers desperately need an innovator. – 2:19 PM
