Like the flowers blooming in spring, the annual will Doc Rivers return to coach next season chatter begins. Per the Celtics radio play-by-play commentator Sean Grande’s twitter account:
Does Doc know if he'll coach next year? “No, I don’t. Every year is the same for me. You need to detox, and that’s what I’m going to do."
— Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) May 1, 2013
I wouldn’t doubt Doc needs some time to catch his breath after this injury plagued season. Who knows what Doc is going to end up doing, remember two years ago when we all thought he was going to take the year off and watch Austin play college ball but then signed a new contract? Regardless if he decides to come back to coaching or not he will definitely have a job as a color commentator for sure. I for sure hope he comes back, there's no other coach I want.

Boston Celtics reserve guard Jordan Crawford instigated a postgame tussle by taunting New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony following Boston’s 92-86 victory over the Knicks in Game 5 on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
As both teams crossed
Kevin Garnett does not give very many interviews with the media. However, the grizzled Celtics veteran continues to give epic interviews after games.”We out here scrappin,” said Garnett after he lead his Celtics back from the dead with a 16-point, 18-rebound game to defeat the New York Knicks 92-86. Garnett then made some pretty fantastic construction metaphors to describe what...
Terrence Williams was the only Celtics player to address the media this morning:
“No, there are no surprises,” Williams said. “At this point, I don’t think either team likes each other. We’re all for our guys and they’re for their guys. When people wear all black and say it’s a funeral, a lot of us have people that died in our own personal lives. That’s not really...
Danny Ainge candidly admitted the Boston Celtics face a difficult decision on whether to buyout Paul Pierce’s contract for the 2013-14 season.
The Celtics have a team option on Pierce’s contract for next season at $15.3 million, with a $5 million buyout before June 30.
"What's important to understand, yeah, it's going to be hard for fans and everybody else, but as...
Jason Terry had to come through for any of this to work.
The Celtics had plenty of “keys” to victory as they entered their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett needed to play at their usual All-Star level. Jeff Green had to provide whatever offensive boost those two future Hall of Famers could not manage. Brandon Bass had to be just as...
Jordan Crawford is not telling anybody what he said to Carmelo Anthony after Game 5 that sparked a minor scuffle at midcourt. Crawford is more than willing to tell everyone what he did not say, though.
Crawford took to Twitter on Thursday to defend his role in an altercation between him, Anthony and a few other members of the Celtics and Knicks on the court at Madison Square Garden...
by Michael Richard-Webb Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce said Wednesday he wants to play at least one more season and he’ll examine his future from there. The question is will he will be back in Boston for the 2013-14 season. Pierce said he hasn’t spent too much time pondering his future, but with his team fighting to keep [...]
8 a.m. ET: History is just 96 minutes away.
No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a best-of-seven series, but this series suddenly has a different tenor. The Celtics seized the momentum from the Knicks, who won the first three games, by winning Games 4 and 5 behind strong performances by Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry. Now the Knicks seem worried, and...
No team has ever come back to win a series in which they were down 3 games to 0. That hasn’t stopped the Boston Celtics from fighting though and the veteran team finds themselves down 3-2 after refusing to quit on themselves after many considered them done. So you could figure that emotions would be [...]
After the Game 4 win in Boston I thought about it... I even included a little Kevin Millar nugget in my post about the Knicks doubling Pierce, but I knew we still had a huge hole to climb out of. Then we won Game 5 and thought ‘man it's starting to feel more and more like that one time.’ Then Jason Terry talked about it in his post-game interview, quoting Millar. Then Mike...

A season to forget ended at the Garden tonight. I’m thankful because I just can’t take it anymore.
The Celtics played atrocious basketball for 39 minutes. The performance rivaled the worst of the worst in this decade. If Dan Dickau was on this team, Doc Rivers would have played him 44 minutes. The offense was that bad.
But… when trailing by 26 points in the 4th quarter, the...
When KMart called for a funeral for Game 5 he didn't perhaps clarify that it was for their own demise. After all, that was when all their ******** and bravado died. Great show, wise asses. See you Friday night when you can repeat your sad performance of "Death at a Funeral" for the Boston crowd.

It was crazy reading the thoughts of Knicks nation this game. It went from smack-talking and nervous confidence to just plain nervousness, misery and Celtic /Ref hate. I love reading Knick fan comments, I hope you guys chuckle as much as I did.
