Doc Rivers diving into his work with Clippers

In many ways, this summer is reminiscent of six years ago for Doc Rivers. He is rejuvenated, having taken a new position with the Clippers, and like he did in Boston in 2007, compiling players for a potential championship run.

Chris Paul re-signed. J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley were acquired. Matt Barnes came back. Darren Collison and Byron Mullens were added to an already talented core that includes Blake Griffin and even DeAndre Jordan. Jordan was close to becoming a Celtic in a deal for Kevin Garnett, but the league stepped in and he’s back as a cornerstone in Los Angeles.
