Clippers' New Direction
How Vinny Del Negro's charm won him the Clippers coaching job, but wasn't enough for him to keep it, and whether or not Chris Paul gets to name Del Negro's replacement.
"No one wants to live in fear. I've always been scared of saying the wrong thing. I don't sleep well. I never have. But each time I tell another person, I feel stronger and sleep a little more soundly. It takes an enormous amount of energy to guard such a big secret. I've endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie. I was certain that my world would fall apart if anyone knew. And yet when I acknowledged my sexuality I felt whole for the first time."
-- Jason Collins in Sports Illustrated
I thought I knew it. I froze up. You know what it was? I'm going to tell you what it was. The words were coming off the projector too slow, Man. So I was trying to read it and trying to remember what I knew, then look at the words and it didn't mix.
But I've been listening to that song ever since I left that place. There will be a comeback, definitely. Definitely.
