I think Alvin is a great pickup for this team. Him and Doc has probably been through every scenario in basketball. Doc said when Alvin and Himself spoke they told each other when they faced each other they could never figure out each others offensive schemes.
I compare this Clipper team to a Football Team.
Head Coach/Defensive Coach - Doc Rivers
Offensive Coach - Alvin Gentry
Quarterback - Chris Paul
Wide Receiver - Blake Griffin
Then you have the best 1-2 punch in the game.
Alvin should get more credit for our out of timeout plays. I think our Entire Coaching staff other than Doc should get more credit for the transformation of Blake and DJ and others.
