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)

Back 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.
