Doc Rivers Catches $50K Fine For Praising Kawhi Leonard

Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors - Game Two

Doc Rivers learned an expensive lesson in bigging up a player from an opposing team, even though in retrospect the comments seemed harmless. During an NBA Finals preview show, the Los Angeles Clippers coach gave heaping amounts of praise to Kawhi Leonard and was hit with a $ 50,000 fine for the kind words.

ESPN reports:

Rivers compared Leonard to Michael Jordan while breaking down the Raptors’ matchup with the Golden State Warriors on ESPN’s NBA Finals preview show.

“He is the most like Jordan that we’ve seen,” Rivers said after Magic Johnson, the Lakers’ former president of basketball operations, talked about Leonard on Tuesday’s preview show. “Like, there’s a lot of great players. LeBron [James] is phenomenal. KD [Kevin Durant] is phenomenal. But he is the most like him.

“Big hands. Post game. Can finish. Great leaper. Great defender. In-between game. If you beat him to the spot, bumps you off. Then you add his 3-point shooting. I never get into who’s the best player. Magic is the best player, Michael Jordan is the best player, LeBron. But it’s that same group.”

Leonard will be a free agent this summer.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Rivers “crossed a bright line” when asked what the Clippers coach should do when he appears on a show that would require his analysis of other teams’ players.

When Erin Poletti pulls her car into the thousand acre Rydell River Ranch in River's End, Washington, looking to stay with her hated brother Chance, she never intends for it to be anything more than a pit stop on the way to the rest of her life. After her mother's suicide, Erin has no choice but to seek out her brother where he works as a ranch hand, as she is left penniless, homeless and for reasons she will share with no one; without the basic skills to navigate her life. Ranch owner Jack Rydell watches her pull onto his ranch and knows that trouble has come to his ranch, his three brothers, his two sons, and most of all: to himself. Erin has a short lived relationship with Jack's youngest brother until circumstances eventually leave Erin nearly destitute on the ranch, and finally reveals the secret Erin has desperately hidden. And only then, does Jack finally begin to know the woman whose presence has so altered his life. Eventually, Erin finds a job, and starts to work with Jack and his horses in order to repay the debts she feels she owes him. But the longer Erin is there Jack begins to wonder if he can resist the woman he now knows, despite everything that stands between them.

With Aquaman being DC Comic’s biggest box office hit thus far it was really only a matter of time before someone went the whole merman route and it seems like Future done decided to dive in headfirst into the concept.

In the CGI driven visuals to “Goin Dummi,” Future finds himself sitting on an underwater throne next to some beautiful women who can apparently breath underwater after laying with them on a bed floating in the ocean. Does this qualify as a waterbed for Millennials?

Back on land Slim One calls on Boston’s Termanology to link up with the Boogie Down’s Chris Rivers to drop some rhyme heavy bars in the hallway for the clip to “JuST Do It.” CR really perfecting his father’s style isn’t he? R.I.P. Big Pun.

Pray for Austin Rivers. He should sit out a week or so.

Autumn, Mike Rivers

Delicious blond tart Autumn likes to play games, so when she hooks up with her man Mike Rivers, she playfully disciplines him. She orders him to strip half naked and then rides him like a pony around the living room. She even goes so far as to wrap his belt tight around his own neck, almost choking him and leading him around as if she were her lap dog. He sits down on the edge of the bed, his rock hard prick extended out in front of him and the gstring wearing tart submissively kneels in front of him, take his prick down her throat and beginning to suck. Playtime is over, as the man grabs her by her long hair and throat fucks her.

Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Shakespeare Nerd

When Weezer ringleader Rivers Cuomo gets into something, he really gets into it. In the late ’90s, he analyzed the mechanics of every Nirvana song and filled a three-ring binder with his findings. In his own ripping guitar solos, you can hear the countless hours he spent learning from his beloved KISS and hair-metal bands. On Weezer's classic Pinkerton,his enthusiasm for Japanese culture is there in the album cover. But recently Cuomo, a Harvard graduate, has found a new passion: the plays of William Shakespeare. And he’s been quietly sharing his love for the Bard’s plays by hosting a small handful of Weezer fans in Los Angeles movie theaters at a semi-regular event he calls Nerd Night.
