Question: You went to Arizona. Who you got in the NCAA Tournament now that we know the Sweet 16? Hopefully Arizona does it. I have a lot of ties with that program. It’s great seeing them do well, so hoping they do. There’s been a lot of talk this weekend about the top prospects for the NBA Draft not performing well in the NCAA Tournament. What’s the biggest difference between playing in college and the NBA? Just the realization that it’s not the same anymore. You’re jumping into a business. Everybody thinks its going to be the same as college or high school, but you have to treat it like a business. How did you handle the adjustment? Just continue to work.

Green Kick Of The Week ft. Avery Bradley’s No Mercy’s

The 2013-14 season for the Celtics is winding down. Whilst their record isn’t pretty, there have been plenty of positives.

Rondo to serve as TV commentator on Celtics game

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo will sit in for Tom Heinsohn on Monday, but he won’t take over Heinsohn’s role as the chief berator of referees.
