Shortly after Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett first arrived in Boston, the Celtics took a preseason EuroTrip which was said to help them form a tight bond prior to a season that would eventually yield 66 regular-season wins and one NBA title. The Celtics also benefited that season from having three superstars very close to their absolute primes, a supporting cast that included the shooting of Eddie House, the all-around whatever-it-takes game of James Posey, the dangerous LeGlen DaPowe combination, and the bruising (not to mention clutch-shooting) P.J. Brown. The ’08 Celtics’ succeess wasn’t entirely a result of that EuroTrip, I promise. (Note: that’s another thing Scotty doesn’t know)Another trip to Europe is in the cards this summer, and the details were announced on Monday. (ESPN Boston)
Oct. 5 – Celtics vs. Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul – Ulker Sports Arena, Istanbul
Oct. 7 – Celtics vs. EA7 Emporio Armani – Mediolanum Forum, MilanBack in April, Celtics coach Doc Rivers expressed a desire to do the team’s full camp overseas, not just the quick two-game trek.“I love when we go [away for camp],” said Rivers. “I’ve always liked it, if it’s done right. And we will find that out later — we don’t know if we’re going to go over there and be our training camp, or if we’re going to do the quick trip. I’m not a big fan of the quick trip. I think when you go over there, go over there, and have camp there. I think it’s a great team-bonding trip. I’m hoping that’s what we do, but that hasn’t been clarified yet.”
At this point, I don’t care where the Celtics hold training camp. I just want Avery Bradley to participate in it, and I want him to have a slew of talented teammates.P.S. — Let the “if Kevin Garnett returns, he’s going to be in enraged heaven playing so many Europeans” jokes begin.
