We can’t get there. We just can’t get over the hurdle.’ I felt like it was time for change,” he shared.“I got an opportunity to grow here,” he added. “It’s unreal to think about the times that we had. We had some good runs.”Furthermore, Paul downplayed the rumored nepotism between coach Doc Rivers and his son Austin, which pundits attribute to his exit in Los Angeles.“Just like I called Blake (Griffin) and those guys, I called Austin,” he said. “I wish him the best of luck with what he has going on in the future.
