A clearly flustered and unprepared Vinny Del Negro met with members of the press Tuesday to announce his return as head coach of the Clippers for the 2012-2013 season.  Throughout the course of the 30-minute conference, Del Negro hastily called two timeouts mid-sentence, during which point he kept trying to substitute superstar point guard Chris Paul with backup point guard Mo Williams, before being repeatedly informed by members of the media that Los Angeles had been already been swept out of the playoffs, and that he would be unable to make lineup changes during a press conference.

At this point, Del Negro began shifting uncomfortably, asking how many fouls Blake Griffin had before calling a 30-second time out and telling reporters that maybe they should just try to get the ball to Chris Paul and have him figure out what play to run.
