Doc Rivers amusingly hints at Cavaliers’ tanking ambitions
The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a rough year in the first campaign of the post-LeBron James era, and there are a lot of people who think it may well be by design.
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers is not necessarily one of those people. He’s also not denying it, either.
Doc Rivers on the Cavs: ‘They haven’t had the year they wanted, or maybe they have. I’m not so sure.’

The Cavaliers are 19-54. That isn’t even the worst record in the East, however, as the team below them has had to answer tanking questions even more awkwardly and directly than the Cavaliers have. Cleveland at least has some bright spots, and they’ve even managed to win two of three, including a win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
