PLAYERS: Doc Rivers

"Doc always has energy, That's the best thing about him, that's what makes him the best coach. He always has energy. He can't have a down day.....he's our main leader. He's the president, then you've got the vice president, the secretary, the treasurers, all that – it goes down the line. So he has to have energy."- Terrence Williams In an outstanding article  that came out today on Doc's game 5 Pregame speech Terrence Williams shares his  thoughts on Doc as a coach. First off, what in the Terrence Williams? When did this guy decide to step up and become a stud in prime time? It's awesome and incredibly unexpected. Reading this article makes me really respect this guy. In the past he's talked about how KG is his role model and now he talks about Doc's ability to lead. You love when a young guy appreciates greatness in all facets of the game. Doc Rivers is awesome at life. To be honest, I'd rather have Doc than any other coach in...

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.

Doc Rivers’ Future With Celtics Uncertain As Coach Will Make Decision Whether to Return

BOSTON — When Kevin Garnett went to the bench with 18 seconds left and the Celtics trailing by seven points, the crowd at TD Garden stood and gave him a rousing, sustained ovation. Despite Garnett having two more years on his contract, the fans realized there was a chance that could be their final opportunity to salute him in a Celtics uniform. There was no such applause given...

Recap: Knicks put an end to this miserable season

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...

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

More Terrence Williams looks like the right move

In last night's inspiring 92-86 victory at MSG, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers used just two players off the bench; Jason Terry for 35 minutes (no surprise), and 17 for Terrence Williams.  Yup, the same Terrence Williams who was playing in China three months ago.  In fact, when Doc had to give Kevin Garnett a much needed breather halfway through the 4th quarter, Williams was...

Celtics have another offseason of decisions ahead

This offseason will be a lot like the last one for the Boston Celtics. Except they're another year older. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce could be heading for retirement. Coach Doc Rivers also wouldn't commit to another season with the Celtics after they were eliminated from the playoffs Friday night with an 88-80 loss to the New York Knicks in Game 6 of their first-round...

Can the Celtics recreate Boston sporting history?

Less than a week ago, the Boston Celtics trailed 3-0 in the series against age-old rivalries, the New York Knicks. Instead of submitting to defeat, the Celtics moved a step closer to doing the unthinkable when on Wednesday night they defeated the Knicks 92-86 in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series. Trailing 3-2, the Celtics will show their worth tonight in Boston in Game 6 and if...

Celtics beat Knicks to force Game 6

They are too old. They can’t keep up with the Knicks. I think the Celtics have heard this many times. Even as they were down three games in the series the team fought back to force a Game 6 in Boston. If the Celtics can win this series they will make NBA playoff history. No team has ever won a seven game series being down 0-3. The Celtics have to win tomorrow night’s game first...

A Proud Loser

Losing, and the act of being a loser is often one of the most shameful and disappointing feelings one can feel, both as a player and a fan of that losing team. As competitors, whether it be baseball, basketball, or in the form of racing that I do myself, losing is one of the worst feelings one can endure. As the great Ricky Bobby once said, “if you ain’t first your last”. We...
