Your Morning Dump… Where Doc & Rondo convinced Courtney Lee to take less money

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “The day that Houston [withdrew its offer], I honestly was walking down the street in Winter Park, I saw [Lee] across the street, and I commandeered him,” Rivers said. “The next thing you know, we’re having...

KG taking Celtics rookie big men under his wing

Sounds like Kevin Garnett is acting as the big man coach to Celtics rookies Fab Melo and Jared Sullinger. That was indeed the case on Sunday when Garnett spent some post-practice time with Boston's young bigs. And to their credit, they were more than eager to soak it all in. "For him to step out at the end of practice, knowing he's probably tired and just speaking...

Leaving on a Jet Plane

The Celtics squeezed a practice this morning and worked on some fun things.  We've been talking about how versatile the Celtics roster is this season and Doc spent this morning's session working on small ball sets that will use that versatility to exploit matchups in their opponents. "[Rondo] will be very happy. We put [the small lineups] in yesterday, but we didn’t...

What to Expect from Celtics Jeff Green in 2012

Of all the players on the Celtics roster it is probably hardest to get a feel for Jeff Green. After arriving in Boston at the trade deadline in 2011 Green played 26 inconsistent games for the C’s, struggling to adapt on the fly before Boston bowed out in the second round of the playoffs to Miami. Green, a restricted free-agent at the time, re-upped with Boston on a one year $9...

Celtics hoping European trip rekindles '07-08 win

The Boston Celtics are heading back to Europe, and they're hoping for the same results as the last time. The Celtics went to Rome in 2007 so the New Big Three could bond and get used to each other. Now they're going to Milan and Istanbul for a pair of exhibition games. Coach Doc Rivers says that any time spent on the road helps teammates bond. The Celtics brought in Kevin...

Darko Milicic will apparently kill someone on the court if he has to

Darko Milicic signed with the Boston Celtics last week, so like most veterans who have underachieved throughout their career Milicic is in “do whatever helps the team win” mode. Because frankly, he’s just happy to be on a NBA roster. Milicic attempted to convey that mindset to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE, and in doing so, he was takes things to a homicidal level. “I’m...

Garnett

The NBA season opens in four weeks with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat on TNT. And when the Celtics land in Miami, don't expect the guys to call up old buddy Ray Allen for some post-game drinks at LIV... especially Kevin Garnett. Because according to KG, "I don't have Ray's number anymore." The Celtics and the Heat have quickly turned into bitter...

The importance of role players, or, we can’t all be superstars

   Anyone who has ever played a game of basketball, whether it’s a pick-up game or competitive hoops, will know that not every person on the floor, at any given time, can have the ball in his hands. This is true for most major sports like baseball (the pinch runner), American football (the kicker and special teams), even ice hockey (defenseman enforcers). In basketball...

Darko Milicic is not of sound mind
