The LA Clippers were just eliminated from the playoffs two weeks ago, but the team is already shaking things up for next season.
After blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Denver Nuggets the team has reportedly parted ways with longtime head coach Doc Rivers.
Rivers released a statement after the news broke.
NBA Twitter had some pretty funny reactions to Rivers’ unexpected outing in LA.

Cheated on that man's daughter with a stripper and then got him put out of L.A. with his bad play.
Paul George is a cold blooded man.

Doc Rivers convinced Steve Ballmer to trade 7 years worth of draft picks for Wayoff P, he just gotta apply for TNT and ESPN media jobs at this point it's been a good run.
