Austin Rivers talked about his time with the Los Angeles Clippers during the ”Lob City” era.

Rivers played four seasons with the Clippers under head coach –and father — Doc Rivers from 2014-2018.

“I wasn’t [upset] about leaving LA. I wasn’t. It was time. It had nothing to do with LA or the team. That situation was amazing, but it reached its ceiling and you just move on bro. They were ready to go in a different direction.

They traded Blake [Griffin], they didn’t re-sign JJ [Redick], they traded Chris [Paul], they didn’t re-sign DeAndre [Jordan], they got rid of me. The whole team, that whole ‘Lob City’ team. And I wasn’t a part of the original ‘Lob City,’ so I don’t want to claim I was.

But, I was a part of that team for four years, and we had runs where we could’ve went to the Finals, but we lost, and it ran its course. Guys went their other ways and for the most part, everybody’s done pretty well,” Rivers said on an Instagram Live last week.
