In the wake of yesterday's NBA trade deadline passing everyone by, ESPN's Amin Elhassan noticed something funny about what happens with Doc Rivers' decision making when it comes to trading players. "Did you play for me?" asks Elhassan as Rivers. "If yes, welcome to the Clippers!" Lo and behold, Jeff Green, who used to play for the Celtics under Rivers, was acquired by the Clippers yesterday in exchange for Lance Stephenson.
The last question is the best: "Have we ever played in our driveway before?"
"Is that a baby photo of Austin Rivers?" asks another ESPN host. Yes. Yes it is.
Here's a Twitter video version, in case ESPN's player doesn't work:
