Doc Rivers revealed he wanted to leave the Los Angeles Clippers only a few weeks after becoming the head coach of the team back in 2013.

Rivers wanted to part ways with the Clippers because of then owner Donald Sterling. Eventually, he remained with the team and has been the head coach since then.

Rivers has won 351 regular-season games, putting him first in franchise history in the coaching ranks, and also has 20 playoffs wins, which is first in franchise history as well.
