The wiggle. Jackie MacMullan went on ESPN last night and said she expects Boston to hire a young (and cheap) up and comer to replace Doc Rivers, rather than an established veteran.  Gary Washburn reiterated the same thing on Sportscenter this morning.  Yesterday Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that Doc is likely taking his assistants Tyronn Lue and Kevin Eastman to LA with him, and in...

Report: "Growing belief" that Kevin Garnett will play one more year, retire, and join T-wolves management

In the NBA vernacular, this is known as a "Woj bomb". Or a nugget of information that for many writers would be a major scoop, but for Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, who breaks nearly every major NBA story, is just worthy of a sentence or two in paragraph six. Tonight, while discussing Doc Rivers joining the Clippers, Woj discussed how the deal impacted both Chris...

Report: NBA hasn't confirmed Rivers-to-Clippers deal

As of Monday afternoon, the NBA still had not approved the deal for Doc Rivers to join the Clippers as their new coach and for the Boston Celtics to receive a first-round pick in 2015 from L.A.

The moment the Celtics needed Doc most, he decided it was time to go

One day after Danny Ainge told his side of the story, Doc Rivers spoke to the media in Los Angeles, and then held a conference call with the Boston media.

Happy Birthday to Celtics Great Sam Jones

Happy 80th Birthday to Celtics great, Sam Jones. Sam played all 12 of his seasons with the Boston Celtics, who drafted him in the first round in 1957.

Report: NBA Approves Deal Sending Doc Rivers to Clippers in Exchange for 2015 First-Round Pick

That proposal could not be completed without league approval, though, which has now reportedly been granted. Sources confirmed to ESPN’s...

Doc Rivers Deal Neither Good Nor Bad for Celtics, Clippers, Merely Necessary for Both Sides

Doc Rivers is a Clipper. Ultimately, it probably had to happen — maybe not in the way it did, but sometime around the third round of negotiations, the teams passed the point where the coach could just waltz back into TD Garden and coach the Celtics next season as though nothing had happened. So as Rivers heads west, agonizing over the parameters of the transaction is largely useless...

Guess That Doc Trade Went Through After All

After much too much talking, the Celtics and Clippers finally agreed to trade Doc Rivers yesterday, and as a result Los Angeles now has a new coach. And, they’re hoping, a worldclass point guard ready to resign. It all makes sense. Here’s what doesn’t make sense though – 2 weeks of negotiations yielded Boston…a 2014 1st round pick? Right, the Celts need to get younger,...

Celtics can't draft what they need: a new coach

The Boston Celtics aren't going to get what they really need with the No. 16 pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

And, with their only pick of the night coming in the middle of the first round...
