AFTER WEEKS OF negotiations and intrigue, Doc Rivers has officially left the Boston Celtics for the Los Angeles Clippers. Rivers will be introduced as the Clippers' new coach and senior vice president of basketball operations at a news conference today at their Playa Vista training complex, capping a lengthy process by completing a rare trade involving a championship-winning coach. The Clippers and Celtics finalized the move yesterday when the NBA approved the deal. Boston will get an unprotected first-round pick in 2015 from the Clippers for Rivers, who went 416-305 and won the 2008 NBA title during nine seasons with the Celtics.

Chester's postgame celebration was subtle at best. Sure, Karon Burton laughed with teammates last night. Nasir Robinson even posed with him for pictures. But for the most part, the Clippers showed very little emotion as they received gold medals. The talented and poised Clippers were only 10 minutes removed from defeating Norristown, 61-47, in the District 1 Class AAAA championship at Villanova's Pavilion. Perhaps Chester didn't celebrate because winning district titles has come to be expected.

In many ways, Chester's game at the Haverford School on Saturday was a microcosm of the Clippers' season. The Clippers would move the ball and then self-destruct. The Clippers would flash brilliance on one play and then stumble on the next. There was one big difference between Saturday's game and Chester's first two games of the year, however. The Clippers won. They overcame the previously unbeaten Fords, 27-14, and they overcame themselves. "That's the way it's been all year," Chester coach Mike White said.

Orlando's J.J. Redick gave the Magic their first lead on a three-pointer with 42 seconds remaining as they shocked the Clippers, 104-101, Saturday in Los Angeles to snap a 10-game skid. The loss, despite Blake Griffin's 30 points, ended the Clippers' 13-game home-winning streak. All-star guard Chris Paul went down holding his right knee with 54 seconds to go but returned after a timeout to hit a 15-footer to draw Los Angeles within one with 33 seconds left. But the Clippers turned the ball over on Jamal Crawford's offensive foul.

Tornados are a rarity in this part of the country. But to Chester's football team, Red Tornados are still a menace. On Saturday, the Clippers ran into the Red Tornados of J.P. McCaskey. And with a defensive line that averages more than 225 pounds, the Clippers' running game was swept away, as was visiting Chester, 20-6. "It's disappointing to lose, but I'm very proud of the kids," said Clippers coach Don Masse. "We made a 75 percent improvement over last week (a 16-8 loss to Lower Merion)

Chichester head coach Tony Irvin was delighted that league rival Chester had received some national prominence Tuesday. Until he had to face the Clippers on the court. On Tuesday morning, USA Today ranked Chester 18th in the entire nation in its weekly poll. Later that afternoon, Irvin got an idea why as he watched the Clippers dismantle his Eagles 97-39 in the first Del-Val League matchup for both schools. "I think it says something about how strong their program is. And it's great because they deserve it," Irvin said.

Samara Benson and her Chester girls' indoor-track teammates are forced to practice in a tunnel, but they sure know what to do when they get on a track. Because of limited facilities, the Clippers can do no better than a cold, winding 100-foot-long tunnel at the school to hone their track and field skills. That doesn't leave a whole lot of room for practicing things like baton passes and the triple jump. But somehow, the Clippers persevere. Friday night at Haverford College, Chester just missed capturing the the Delaware County Indoor Girls' Track and Field Championships.

The Chester Clippers are just one game away from having a better turnaround season than even the Baltimore Orioles. And based solely on what the Clippers did to perennial Del-Val National Division power Penn Wood on Saturday, Chester's accomplishments may have already surpassed the Birds' magic on the baseball diamond in 1989. The Clippers, who were a dismal 2-10 last year, improved to 7-2 and 5-0 in the league after crushing the Patriots, 35-12, at Kerr Field in Yeadon. And if Chester beats Interboro on Saturday, it will win its first title since 1986.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

The 76ers know the real tests are coming. They've won five of their last 10 games, but one of those wins came against an Atlanta Hawks squad that rested three starters. The other four victories were against opponents that had a combined winning percentage of .328 heading into Thursday's games. The Sixers (18-54) have made dramatic improvements since opening the season with 17 consecutive losses. But the coming games against the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers will be a true barometer of how far they've come.

NEW YORK - Derek Fisher sat in his slightly darkened office at Madison Square Garden and, as usual, reviewed videotape. It was 3 hours before his Knicks welcomed the Clippers to MSG on Wednesday. The video showed the Clippers' usual array of monster dunks and fastbreak thunder, but it also revealed a maestro at work. Fisher, less than a season removed from playing in the NBA, couldn't help but be awed at the deftness with which Chris Paul orchestrated the movements of every player on the court.

Tony Wroten just might be a hot commodity. The 76ers acquired guard Jared Cunningham and cash Wednesday in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers. The team did not send a player in return and immediately released Cunningham. However, the Orange County Register reported that the Clippers did inquire about Wroten, the Sixers' leading scorer. They were just preliminary discussions, expressing interest, according to the report. "Whatever happens, happens," Wroten said Wednesday before the game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - Michael Carter-Williams said he was fine and plans to play Monday at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the 76ers point guard was scratched from Saturday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center because of an aggravated right shoulder. Carter-Williams missed the first seven games this season after having surgery to repair the labrum in his shoulder on May 6. He tweaked the shoulder early in the 112-96 setback to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night at US Airways Center.

LOS ANGELES - The 76ers' West Coast road trip ended the way most had expected it would - with a lopsided loss. The Sixers are nowhere close to the caliber of the Los Angeles Clippers, and that became evident once the hosts stopped going through the motions. Sparked by a 28-11 second-half run, Los Angeles rolled to a 127-91 victory at the Staples Center on Saturday night. "I was proud of our group for 36 minutes," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

Former St. Joseph's star Delonte West is ready to take another shot at the NBA. West, 30, is on the Los Angeles Clippers' roster in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The 6-foot-3 shooting guard has not played in the NBA since he was waived by the Dallas Mavericks in October 2012; he had been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. He played for a season in the Chinese Basketball Association. West averaged 9.7 points a game in eight NBA seasons with the Celtics, Cavaliers, SuperSonics, and Mavericks.

WELL, as Terrell Owens once said, "Get your popcorn ready, 'cause I'm gonna put on a show. " Of course, T.O. was referring to himself, but his point can easily be applied to the apparent imminent legal showdown that will take place between the National Basketball Association and banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Yesterday, Sterling filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. "The [termination] charges in the lawsuit are an invasion of his constitutional rights, violation of antitrust laws, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract," Belcher told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne in discussing the lawsuit.

WE MIGHT YET be spared the spectacle of the defense of racism by a horde of legal vultures. Fallen Clippers owner Donald Sterling, fined, banned and soon to be forced to sell his team, now reportedly is facilitating a sale through his wife, who seeks to retain a share of the team. The NBA might still force the sale on its teams if Sterling's are unacceptable; but, at the very least, Sterling appears willing to let the cancer he has become be excised. If that is the case, certainly it will speed healing on his team, in the league and among those around the country who care about the issue and the story.

THE TWEET WAS short, and anything but sweet. Clippers owner Donald Sterling was to receive an award on May 15 as part of the 100th anniversary of the LA chapter of the NAACP. With Rev. Al Sharpton in attendance, no less. But there has been a change of plans in light of Sterling's alleged racist comments on an audio tape released by TMZ. Thus, yesterday's tweet:"#DonaldSterling will not be receiving a lifetime achievement award from the LA Branch of the NAACP. " It would have been Sterling's second lifetime achievement award from the organization.
