Rivers: Olympics Experience Matured DeAndre Jordan

(DeAndre) Jordan was on the USA Basketball team that won the gold medal in the Rio Olympics, and from that experience, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers has seen a more mature player.

“There’s definitely been [growth] in the leadership category,” Rivers said. “He talks more, which I didn’t know was possible. But he does — really more. I think he prepares better. He was probably around those guys and someone must’ve worked really hard over in Brazil. You can see D.J. is doing that now. He’s putting in more time. He has a better confidence. You can see, even free-throw wise, when you look at him. He looks comfortable. They’re going in a little more, which is good, but the confidence part is good to see.”

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
