The bad blood between Doc Rivers and Chris Paul is still brewing, as the the Clippers head coach threw some heavy shade at his former star during a press conference on Tuesday. Doc poked his former point guard during the Q&A portion of an event introducing the Clippers new players. He claimed the team would have more ball movement without Paul on the roster.

While he praised Paul’s skills, it was clear that Doc wants to get back to the style of play he prefers without the nine-time All-Star.
Look, that’s about the nicest possible way you can say what he said, but it’s clear Doc was taking aim at his former star. The two guys are certainly not going to be exchanging Christmas cards any time soon.
