The Clippers Reportedly Likely Would’ve Fired Doc Rivers Unless They Won The Title

Published

By

Depending on who you ask, the Los Angeles Clippers were either the biggest disappointment of the postseason or a team that ended up right where they were headed all along if you were paying attention to the red flags. Either way, they’re out, and now the franchise faces big questions as they look toward the future.

They made the first major change earlier this week when they announced that they were parting ways with head coach Doc Rivers. In some ways, it was an inevitable move given Rivers’ repeated failure to get several talented iterations of the team to a Western Conference Finals appearance.

With those past failures looming large, it now appears that Rivers was already on the hot seat going into the playoffs. Despite what Paul George would have you believe, it was championship or bust for a team that had gone all in this season to try to win their first title in franchise history. And now, it turns out that’s the only thing that could’ve saved Rivers’ job.

Via Jovan Buha of The Athletic:

Aside from the underwhelming results, the Clippers identified troubling patterns in the collapses. If anything, the separation was probably years in the making. Even if the Clippers had lost deeper in the postseason, say, to the Lakers in the conference finals or to the Heat in the finals, Rivers likely would not have been back next season.

During his tenure in Los Angeles, the Clippers won just three total postseason series. Rivers also holds an NBA record for coaching three teams that have blown a 3-1 series lead in the playoffs, the second of which came against Rockets in the second round in 2015.

Even by the more generous assessments, it’s a questionable postseason track record that certainly detracts from all of his overall success as an NBA coach, and it remains to be seen what the next move in his career might be.

What to Stream: James Cagney Is a Corrupt Demagogue in “A Lion Is in the Streets”

Published

on

By

When it comes to films about the rise of corrupt demagogues, “All the King’s Men,” from 1949, based on the life of Huey Long, is among the most famous. But it has less to say about the current day than another (and, I’d say, better) movie on the same subject, “A Lion Is in the Streets,” from 1953 (which is streaming on Amazon). It’s a shorter, brisker, wilder film, and one that’s more colorful—not just in its splashy Technicolor cinematography but in its characterizations—thanks largely to its star, the ebullient James Cagney, and its director, the rambunctious Raoul Walsh.

“A Lion Is in the Streets” begins and ends in mud; mud is at the crux of the action, and, in a way, it’s the very subject of the film, though that isn’t quite clear at the outset. During a big rainstorm in rural Louisiana, a boisterous peddler named Hank Martin (Cagney) splashes up a mud-pooled dirt road toward a one-room schoolhouse, where he playfully helps the new and young teacher, Verity Wade (Barbara Hale), a college-educated Pennsylvanian—and then grabs her by the hand, seductively draws her into a vestibule, and informs her that he’s going to marry her. The loud and willful Hank is used to getting his way (they indeed marry); he’s an exuberant, happy-go-lucky glad-hander, glib and brash and sociable, the friendliest guy in town, whose popularity goes hand in hand with the skillful manipulations of his salesmanship, which he brazenly describes to his new bride. When she tells him how “wonderful” she finds the townsfolk, he answers, “All folks is wonderful, if you just happen to know the right place to kick ’em in. . . . It’s like learning to play a music instrument by ear—all you gotta know is what place to push to get what note, and pretty soon everybody’s dancin’ to your tune.”

A man of many and disparate parts, Hank is an autodidact of the law (borrowing books from a local grandee) and a cynic who, with authentic loyalty to the poor sharecroppers, who are his friends and customers—the “folksies,” he calls them—heaps contempt on the state’s reformist governor, saying that his efforts at civic improvement, notably a massive campaign of road building (to deal with the mud), aren’t moving fast enough. Venting a grudge against Robert Castleberry (Larry Keating), a rich businessman whose cotton gin, he claims, is short-weighting the farmers (i.e., underpaying them for their crop), Hank organizes an armed posse of fifty men to invade the enterprise. (“You married a winner,” he cries out to Verity, “not a loser.”)

Unsurprisingly, the result is mayhem, and Hank ends up facing possible criminal charges. But a political fixer named Guy Polli (Onslow Stevens) has a scheme for Hank to avoid those charges: having Hank run for governor and making sure that he defeats the reformer. Hank runs on his popularity, his celebrity, and his populist contempt for the establishment—although his policies, tailored to the interests of his backer, will do the “folksies” no good. Meanwhile, Hank’s publicity stunts, his flouting of the law, his demagogy, and his autocratic impulses become all the more flagrant. The action includes an affair with a flashily nicknamed woman, a takeover of a courtroom (with no fear of being held in contempt of court), a plot to kill a suspect in possession of inconvenient information, Election Day chicanery, an election thrown into the legislature, a private militia that seeks to influence the decision—and, through it all, there’s the menace of mud, rendering roads impassable to prospective voters and also preventing farmers from selling their wares.

Which is to say that “A Lion Is in the Streets” is a story of infrastructure. The movie offers, amid its hectic and rowdy melodrama, a constant and underlying vision of the crucial power of government to serve the public good—and the ease with which that power can, almost invisibly, be shifted to the unfair advantage of the rich and the connected. Yet the fire and the flair of “A Lion Is in the Streets” is provided by Cagney, who is an exuberant performer, one whose snappy streetwise popularity coalesces with that of Hank. Cagney, who got his start as a song-and-dance man, was famous for his roles in both musicals and gangster films, in comedies and dramas alike, and his villainous characters have the same bounce and snap, bluster and charm, as his lovable ones. He pulls off that trick in “A Lion Is in the Streets,” displaying the ease with which a loud, audacious, brazen, fast-talking rogue with a ravenous ego can win the hearts of the vulnerable and downtrodden while also making common cause with their very oppressors.

The Best Wireless Routers For Faster, More Reliable WiFi

Before you call the cable company the next time your internet goes out, consider checking your router. Even if you’ve got a decent connection, a spotty router can make you think otherwise, dropping the signal from your modem or making one so weak it doesn’t reach every room in your house. Your router creates the wireless network your devices join to access the internet, so if it’s not working you won’t be able to use the internet.

There’s nothing worse than experiencing lag while watching live sports, or seeing the dreaded buffering icon show up on your screen while trying to upload or download a file. Think a dropped call is bad? Try experiencing a dropped signal in the middle of an important work call, or while you’re trying to record a track.

We’ve rounded up some solid options that work intelligently to find faster, more efficient ways to get you online. From mesh routers, which can be placed around the house to build a full WiFi network, to a traditional point-to-point router, which stays in a central location in your home.

What Are The Best Wi-Fi Routers?

There are many factors to think about when choosing the right wireless router for you; below are the most important ones, which we considered while we were researching this list.

Speed: The most important feature when getting a wireless router is its maximum speed. The hardware (chips and antennas) wireless routers use to create a WiFi network evolve every few years; the latest standard is called WiFi 6, and it has a theoretical maximum speed of 11Gbps (Gigabits per second). Previous generation WiFi 5 routers have a theoretical maximum of 1Gbps.

We recommend a mix of WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 wireless routers because the bottleneck that caps your maximum speed probably isn’t coming from your router. Both support many of the same features, including operating on both the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz frequencies to avoid network congestion when a lot of devices are connected at once. To take full advantage of a WiFi 6 wireless router’s speed, your devices will need to support that standard. An overwhelming majority don’t right now — even gadgets released recently.

Your network speed will also be limited by the internet plan you’ve chosen from your ISP (internet service provider). If your plan has a maximum speed of 200Mbps (megabits per second), it won’t matter that your router’s theoretical fastest speed is five or 25 times that. Still, getting a WiFi 6 compatible router now means you won’t need to upgrade for many, many years, which is a major upside.

Coverage Area: Having a wireless router that can make a fast connection doesn’t matter much if it can’t reach every room in your house. We made sure to choose routers with a long reach, so you don’t have to deal with dead zones or weak spots.

Security: You don’t want anyone snooping around your network, so we only picked routers that support WPA2, a security standard that checks whether or not an unwanted intruder has accessed or altered any data flowing through your network. For best practices, make sure to have a very strong — I.e. long, mixed character (letters, numbers, and symbols) — WiFi password.

Ease Of Use: Wireless routers have been notoriously difficult to manage in the past, but the situation has gotten a lot better recently. All of the routers in our guide allow you to change key settings — your password, enabling or disabling a firewall, blocking certain devices from accessing the internet — via an app on your smartphone (iOS and Android). It’s far better than logging into your router and navigating around an old web interface.

Mesh or Point-To-Point: Modern wireless routers come in two variants: point to point, or mesh. Point-to-point routers are traditional: they have antennas sticking up from the back, and stay connected in a fixed point in your home.

Mesh wireless routers are newer; instead of one router, they typically come in packs of two or three, which you place in different parts of your home to create a larger, stronger network. The type you choose will depend on the size of your home — smaller places can get away with a single router, larger ones could use the extra support of a mesh network — but there’s no wrong answer.

Cable Modem vs. WiFi Router: It’s important to know that a wireless router is not the same as a cable modem. A cable modem connects to your cable or fiber optic cable to bring the internet into your home.

A wireless router connects to your cable modem, and turns the wired connection into a wireless network — think of your cable modem as the water line coming into a home, and the wireless router like the sprinkler system distributing the water onto a lawn.

Point-to-point routers must be connected to your cable modem at all times. If you have a mesh router WiFi system, only one of the wireless routers needs to be connected to your cable modem, the others can be placed anywhere else.

1. BEST OVERALL: Eero mesh WiFi system

Amazon

Its latest three-router system supports WiFi 5, and can create a network over a 5,000 sq. ft. area. Setting the routers up is easy: connect one to your cable modem with an Ethernet cable, and plug the other two anywhere else in your home. The routers will send out a signal to “find” one another, and create an interconnected WiFi network that covers your entire place.

The main reason I recommend eero’s routers is their performance, which has been excellent and consistent in my experience, but also because they’re so easy to use. Eero’s app is simple and organized, which lets you get to simple settings (your WiFi password) and more complicated one (setting up port forwarding), a few taps away.

Eero pushes security and performance updates to its routers on a regular basis, and times them to download in the middle of the night, so they don’t interrupt your work during the day. If something goes wrong with your network, you’ll get a notification, and can diagnose the problem.

If there’s any real fault to these routers it’s that they were released right before the WiFi 6 standard was adopted, so they’re not quite as future proof as another option in our guide.

2. ENTRY LEVEL: TP-Link Wifi 6 AX1500 Smart WiFi Router

TP-Link AX1500

TP-Link

TP-Link has a wide range of Wi-Fi routers, but its AX1500 offers a lot of features at a budget-friendly price.

The single-point router supports Wi-Fi 6, with speeds up to 1.3GBps (gigabytes per second) on its 5GHz band or 300MBps (megabytes per second) on its 2.4GHz band. TP-Link doesn’t give an exact range, but this router’s four antenna system and Wi-Fi 6 support mean you shouldn’t have to worry if you live in an apartment or single-floor home.

The AX1500 is equipped with useful security features that can help keep your network from getting hacked, but you should still use an incredible strong password for extra protection. It supports WPA2 encryption, and comes with a firewall to block digital intruders. You can manage your security settings through TP-Link’s Tether app, which also makes it easy to set up your router, or diagnose network issues.

If you’re still using the Wi-Fi router built into your cable modem, or want to upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 to improve your download speeds, the AX1500 is a great place to start looking.

3. MOST COMPACT: Google Nest WiFi Router (2nd Generation)

Amazon

If you want a better Wi-Fi router, but don’t have a lot of space, your best option is Google’s Nest WiFi Router (2nd Generation).

Google says it can cover up to 2200 sq. ft., but you can connect it to other Nest WiFi Routers to create a mesh network and extend its range further. The company doesn’t mention this router’s maximum speed, but says it can connect to 200 devices simultaneously, so it’s definitely got some bandwidth to spare. This router doesn’t support Wi-Fi 6, which means its speeds will be limited compared to some of our other recommendations.

Google’s Nest WiFi Router supports WPA3, the latest version of this security standard that makes it even harder for hackers to make it onto your network. If you’re very concerned about internet security, this feature makes this router a strong contender.

You can set up and manage this router through Google’s Home app (iOS and Android), which is really easy to use. I’ve set up multiple devices using this app, and the process has always been quick and straightforward.

The final reason to consider Google’s Nest WiFi Router is that it’s also a smart speaker. Google basically combined the technology from its first-generation router with its Google Home Mini, which allows you to control smart-home accessories, set timers, or get answers to questions totally hands-free.

If you need a compact Wi-Fi router with excellent range that can also work as a smart-home hub, Google’s Nest WiFi Router (2nd Generation) is the one we recommend.

4. BEST WI-FI 6 ROUTER: Linksys Velop Wifi 6 Mesh Router

Linksys Velop 6 MX 5 Router

Amazon

If you want a wireless router that’s on the cutting edge of technology, Linksys’ Velop MX5 is your best choice.

It’s a mesh WiFi router, which means you can connect multiple MX5s at once, but it’s so powerful that one may be enough. The WiFi 6-enabled router can create a WiFi network that covers up to 3,000 sq. ft. on its own. Linksys says it has enough bandwidth to connect to over 50 devices simultaneously without a hit to performance.

The MX5 is capable of this feat because it supports a technology called BSS (Basic Service Set), which allows it to intelligently organize how your devices connect to the wireless router. By arranging the WiFi channels and frequencies perfectly, it can dramatically improve your internet speeds per device.

If you have a larger space, you can get a pair of MX5 routers, which can cover an area up to 6,000 sq. ft., and connect to up to 100 devices simultaneously. The caveats, which I mentioned earlier, is that you’ll need the latest-and-greatest gadgets and an incredibly fast internet connection to get the most out of this WiFi 6-enabled router. But, if you won’t settle for anything less than the best, you’ll find little else to complain about.
