Doc Rivers shot down rumors of defecting to the Lakers and said he agreed to a contract extension with the Clippers.

Rivers focused on why he likes coaching the Clippers.

But maybe something about the Lakers also turned him off?

Michael Wilbon on ESPN:

There are people in southern California right in that environment telling Doc, “You don’t want do this.” And one of those reasons is simply LeBron James. He’s been told by people – and I know this – LeBron doesn’t want to be coached.

Coaching LeBron can be tricky, but any great coach would never turn down the opportunity to coach one of the all time greats.

As a coach it’s your job to get through to the players, and it shouldn’t matter if that player is a KING.

That being said, Rivers is doing great with the Clippers, and has been through hell with that organization.

LeBron is definitely a Coach Killer, but he will give you a chance to win.
