Doc Rivers will prescribe a culture for Clippers

Last season, the Clippers prided themselves and rallied on the fact that a disparate group, some thrown into the mix at the last minute, developed into a close-knit unit that had contributions from every part of the bench, not to mention the locker room.
As the 2013-14 season unfolds, whatever teamwork develops won’t be by accident.
“I’m a big believer in culture,” Rivers said. “When I went to Boston, even though it had an amazing amount of history, I thought we had to do different things there. When I went to Orlando it was the same thing. That doesn’t mean it was all right, it wasn’t … I do believe in a winning culture. You have to have that first before you can win and I think that’s the tone I’m going to try to set starting today.”
