In the midst of DeAndre Jordan’s change of heart during his free agency period from committing to the Dallas Mavericks, the Clippers’ center actually talked to Doc River’s son about his decision to return after all.
You may know that River’s son, Austin, is Jordan’s teammate, but he apparently wasn’t the person who was contacted. Instead, it was Doc’s youngest son, Spencer, who received a snapchat video.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Doc detailed the exchange.
“DeAndre thought about leaving, but right away, he knew he wanted to come back,” said Rivers. “He even Snapchatted my youngest son Spencer. He had told two or three people he’d made a mistake [after signing the offer sheet with Dallas], but the Snapchat said, ‘Tell your dad to call me.’”
Which leads us the question that needs to be asked: does anybody like Austin Rivers?
