09:44 AM ET 06.22 | Doc Rivers informed the Los Angeles Clippers that he is no longer a candidate for the franchise's coaching job and will use the weekend to decide his coaching future with the Boston Celtics, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Free-agent star Chris Paul pushed the Clippers to hire Rivers as coach, but will have to settle for Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw or Byron Scott if he plans to re-sign with Los Angeles in July. Paul is unhappy with the fallout over the failed deal, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night.

Is Chris also unhappy that he was incapable of leading his team to the WCF? I never heard him come out and take responsibility for that. Sure got the coach fired though.
For as little as he has accomplished in the NBA, the guy whines a LOT.
Rondo, Parker, Westbrook, Rose have all already done a lot more than what Paul has accomplished.

Rondo, Parker and Westbrook have also been surrounded with more talent and help.

It was a team failure to get out of the 1st round. Not just CP's.

Good point. CP3 gets a free pass most of the time. Not sure why?
