While testifying recently interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers, Dick Parsons, stated that he has had multiple talks with players and coaches regarding Donald Sterling's continued role as owner of the franchise.  He stated that Doc Rivers has told him that he doesn't think he'll continue to coach if Sterling remains in power.
“If Doc were to leave, that would be a disaster,” Parsons said. “Doc is the father figure of the team. Chris (Paul) is the on-court captain of the team. But Doc is really the guy who leads the effort. He’s the coach, the grown-up, he’s a man of character and ability — not just in a basketball sense, but in the ability to connect with people and gain their trust.....The team believes in him and admires and loves him. If he were to bail, with all the other circumstances, it would accelerate the death spiral.”
