Eastern-conference


Courtney Lee started on an Orlando Magic team that reached the 2009 NBA Finals, but has floundered in mediocrity since.Back on a championship contender, he appreciates the “vibe” in Boston. (Boston Herald)
“The vibe here is totally different,” said Lee, who will start at least until Avery Bradley returns in December. “It’s one of the best 1-through-15 teams I’ve been on where everybody is being cool with each other and on the same page. The coaching staff is committed to winning a championship.“That’s not a knock on any other team,” he said. “I’m sure the goal was the same everywhere else. But here you can feel it and see it, instead of just hearing about it. There’s the constant reminders, the constant videos in the locker room playing last year’s playoffs. The conversations you have with everyone from management all the way down to the ball boys and the equipment guys. Everyone is committed to winning a championship.“Everybody does a good job of coming together. We have a lot of guys on this team with similar personalities and interests, all with one common goal: a championship. That makes it easy to give in and forget about being an individual and becoming a team.”
I continue to be astounded at Doc Rivers playing tape from last year’s playoffs. If you want to know why Kevin Garnett sometimes seems homicidal, it’s because Rivers forces him to watch Chris Bosh’s stunning Game 7 3-point outburst on loop.(Note: I wrote a long column about Jason Terry for MassLive. Check it if you want.)

Did Ainge miss out on draft home run?

I don't watch enough college ball as I probably should, but I do read a lot of draft profiles every June. And from my experience drafting successfully in the NBA is much easier than GM's make it out to be. Basically the easiest way to success is to draft the guys who fall in the draft. When a star like Pierce falls to #10 you snag him. When first round talents like DaJuan...
