This. I like Rivers, but he got handed a s.hitload of talent and all of a sudden he is considered a top-tier coach. Go f.ucking figure. He is a great motivator and has a knack for great plays after a timeout. But his offense is incredibly predictable and his teams have blown 4 different 3-2 series leads since he has been coaching.
