Found September 30, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Familiar faces Greg Dickerson, Gary Tanguay, and Donny Marshall will no longer be a part of Comcast SportsNet New England's Boston Celtics television coverage this upcoming season (although Tanguay and Dickerson will both continue on with CSNNE).  Dickerson's sideline reporter role will now go to Abby Chin (above), who's been with the newtwork since last December (I expect this will do wonders for Ms. Chin's @tvabby twitter account).  Kyle Draper will take over the position of pre/post-game show host previously held by Tanguay.  Meanwhile Marshall's chair opposite Tanguay will be filled by a variety of rotating guests, including Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, one time Providence Friars Head Coach Tim Welsh, former Celtic great Dave Cowens, and Tommy Heinsohn (who no longer travels) for home games. But the most intriguing news of all is who will be filling in for Heinsohn alongside Mike Gorman on the road.  Last year Brian Scalabrine often provided the co...

Rajon Rondo will return 'when I'm mentally ready'

There were plenty of highlights in Waltham from Boston Celtic's media day on Monday, but the most burning question had to be when Rajon Rondo would return to the court. Rondo has been out since January with an ACL tear, an injury that has proven tough to work back from in any sport. In the case of Derrick Rose, a torn ACL took away his 2012 post season as well as his 2012-13...

Celtics don't know when PG Rajon Rondo will return

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo won't be back in time for the start of the regular season. Rondo says he doesn't know how long it will take for him to recover from tearing a ligament in his right knee in January. He has been working on his shooting and his ball-handling, but he doesn't take part in practice where there is any contact. Rondo is the only remaining...

Rajon Rondo tells us when he’ll return

Rajon Rondo says he’ll be back sometime during the winter Rajon Rondo did his best impression of Derrick Rose during media day when asked when he’ll be back. Rondo, who tore his ACL last January against the Atlanta Hawks, told reporters that he’ll return to the court when he’s mentally ready. The good news for the Boston Celtics is that Rondo expects to be back sometime...

Update from Celtics training camp: Day 1 Wrap Up

Celtics first day of training camp wrapping up. #celticstalk— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 1, 2013 2013-14 season is upon us.

Rondo leads Celtics at first day of camp

Rondo went through a non-contact, morning walkthrough on day one of camp. Rondo is at a disadvantage of sorts. He won't be able to start this era off with a bang. He'll have to develop his new role as sole team leader on the sideline leading by his voice, and with whatever else he can do that doesn't compromise his rehab. He hasn't been given the title as team captain...

One, there is no way to tell, from one case to the next, how an individual will...

Doc Rivers Calls Lakers ‘Best Franchise In Sports History,’ Admits He Was ‘Wishy-Washy’ on Leaving Celtics

Seventeen championship banners do not engender the same respect they used to. Recently departed Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who already disappointed Boston fans this offseason by leaving to coach the Los Angeles Clippers, twisted the knife a bit in an interview from his new home in California. While acknowledging that his nine seasons in Boston were the best in his basketball life...

Chris Paul: Doc Rivers Told Me I’m Nothing

Chris Paul might be the best point guard in the NBA, but to Doc Rivers he’s simply a talented guy without a ring. Fresh off of coaching Rajon Rondo, Rivers is not foreign to dealing with different personalities and that experience dealing with Rondo, along with a winning pedigree allowed Rivers to lay the law down to Paul during their first meeting. According to Marc Spears of...

Random Thoughts on Media Day Happenings

It was great to have Celtics back in the forefront yesterday and to see all the players back in Waltham. That means one thing. Basketball is close!!
