Austin Rivers has already laughed at the rumblings that Chris Paul left the Los Angeles Clippers because of perceived nepotism, and now we have Doc Rivers’ side of the story.

Rivers, who has coached the Clippers the past four seasons, said Wednesday that the report about Paul butting heads with him or any other member of the organization is false. Instead, Doc insists Paul left strictly for basketball reasons.

Rivers said Paul chose to force a trade to the Houston Rockets because he feels he will have a better chance of winning there, though Doc disagrees and feels CP3 would have been better off in L.A.
