An Emotional Doc Rivers Reacts To Jacob Blake Shooting ‘We Keep Loving This Country And This Country Doesn’t Love Us Back’

The LA Clippers took a commanding 3-2 series lead on Tuesday night but Doc Rivers wasn’t in a jovial mood after the game..

While speaking to the media in the team’s postgame press conference, Rivers was extremely emotional while talking about the Republican National Convention, the police shooting of Jacob Blake, and why this country needs police reform.

Just watching the Republican National Convention and they’re spewing this fear, all you hear from Donald Trump and all of them talking about fear, we’re the ones getting killed, we’re the ones getting shot, we’re the ones getting denied to live in certain communities, we’ve been hung. we’ve been shot, and all you do is keep hearing about fear, it’s amazing to me why we keep losing this country and this country doesn’t love us back and it’s really so sad.

How dare the Republicans talk about fear we’re the ones that need to be scared, we’re the ones having to talk to our sons, what white father has to give his son a talk about being careful if you get pulled over?

Doc’s comments come on the same day several NBA players including Marcus Smart, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell have talked about potentially boycotting playoff games in the aftermath of 29-year-old black man Jacob Blake being shot seven times by police as he entered his car where his children were in.

It’s still unclear if players will follow-through with the boycott but the mood inside the bubble is currently grim.
