The hope for (Doc) Rivers is that (DeAndre) Jordan will take the momentum generated by his Olympic experience and become a more confident and assertive player.
“He sees himself now as a star,” Rivers said. “As good as he is, I don’t think he’s ever seen himself as one. He’s always been the third guy so he’s looked at himself as a role player in some ways. Now he knows how good he is and I think any time you’re around winning, it’s important, and I think DJ now knows what winning looks like.”
