Doc Rivers revealed the plans of the Los Angeles Clippers for the national anthem during the NBA restart.

The players of the Clippers are expected to kneel during the anthem and Rivers is planning to do the same.

“I really believe this, and I believe this for all of us what I call, ‘old folks.’ We need to follow the youth on this movement. We need to follow what they want to do and listen to what they want to do and say, and then follow them.

And so as a coach, I’m going to do that. I’m going to let my players lead, and I’ll follow,” Rivers told reporters, via Tomer Azarly of Clutchpoints.
