Doc Rivers Calling

The story came out just before the All Star reserves were announced that Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was calling other coaches to stump for Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan. What was said in these calls? I decided to make them up investigate.

Brian Shaw, Denver Nuggets

‘Hey Brian, it’s Doc…A desk? Naw man, I got a desk. Man, you guys are taking that fire sale really seriously…”

Byron Scott, Los Angeles Lakers

“Hey, oh Kobe? Hey what’s up. Uh, is Byron there? Oh, you’re not letting him use the phone? Okay. Nah, no message.”

Dave Joerger, Memphis Grizzlies

“Hey Dave, it’s Doc. Dave? What is that? Are you eating ribs? Okay man, I’ll call you back.”

Flip Saunders, Minnesota Timberwolves

“Hey Flip, this is Doc. I was hoping-You want me to vote for who? Anthony Bennett!” *click*

Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs


Jeff Hornacek, Phoenix Suns

“Hey Jeff…wait, you want Austin? How many guards to you need man? I think you have a problem.”

Kevin McHale, Houston Rockets

“Hey Kevin…Do I want Dwight? Uh, sorry, you’re breaking up, I’m going through a tunnel.”

Monty Williams, New Orleans Pelicans

“Hey Monty, it’s Doc. Uh, sure I could hire you as an assistant when you get fired.”

Quin Snyder, Utah Jazz

“Hey Quin, it’s Doc. Look I’m really hoping you’d vote for Chris and DeAndre for the All Star….Quin are you just staring into your phone?”

Rick Carlisle, Dallas Mavericks

“Hey Rick, what are you up to? Oh, Mark is making you go to a taping of Shark Tank? Uh, really sorry about that. He wants to talk to me? Sorry man, my phone is breaking up, I’m going through a tunnel.”

Scott Brooks, Oklahoma City Thunder

“Hey Scott. Scott? C’mon man, stop crying. I’m sure they’ll keep you around.”

Steve Kerr, Golden State Mavericks

“Steve man, I know you’re screening these calls. But please pick up. I’m just trying to stump for my guys. At least I’m not Flip over here or anything.”

Terry Stotts, Portland Trail Blazers

“Hey Terry…Oh, Robin? Yeah man, sorry to hear about your injury. You’re going to do what? Man, I don’t even think we HAVE a mascot.”

Tyrone Corbin, Sacramento Kings

“Nah, nevermind.”


Chris Paul was elected as an All Star Reserve.
