A jet-lagged Paul Pierce talked to the Boston media after the Celtics first practice in Istanbul. What Courtney Lee brings to the team was a main topic of conversation.

Rivers reaady to lead Hornets as a rookie

Austin Rivers is 20 years old. He's a rookie. He's ready to lead. "It doesn't matter what age, in my opinion," Rivers said. "I think it all starts with showing by example. You can be 17, 18, 26, 30, if you show by example and you go out there and give effort and work hard and you lead, I think naturally you'll be a leader. "That's one thing...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are having intense scrimmages

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Today’s practice just wrapped up. Quite a bit of live scrimmaging today, a good prep for tomorrow’s first preseason game here in Istanbul. Doc Rivers said that most of training camp thus far has been used to...

Confidence Key for Another Celtic

Darko's seated rebound I wrote earlier about how I felt that much of Rondo's problem with his shot has been confidence and that this season he has confidence in his shot and people are noticing. It appears that confidence is key to another Celtic as well. Gary Washburn posted this on Sulia Doc Rivers on working on Darko's confidence: "“He just needs a chance...

Doc: Darko doesn’t exist anymore

The name alone is enough to give you chills: Darko. Even for me, when I heard the Celtics signed him, I skipped the analysis for a little bit and just sat to let the anguish of the moment wash over me. We signed Darko. Of course, when you look at it objectively, veteran minimum deals are inherently no risk because the league pays a good portion of the salary and you can just cut...

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Still Going Strong, As Retirement Will Have to Wait

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have not really played together for a long time, relatively speaking. They spent a larger portion of their careers playing without each other than with each other, even if Garnett wearing Timberwolves royal blue seems like a distant memory. They have a long time to go, for instance, before they match the 12 years Bill Russell and Sam Jones shared the...

Jeff Green asserting himself in camp

After a disappointing debut for the Celtics at the end of the 2010-2011 season, many were critical of the rather large contract the Celtics signed Jeff Green to this offseason. However, Doc Rivers remained confident in Jeff Green despite his struggles during his brief time with the Celtics:“Trying to do that on the run, with 25 games left, is nearly impossible,” Rivers said...

Celtics hope Darko’s seventh team will be his best

Darko painting other players shows team first attitude? A stretch-- I just could not pass up using this picture.Darko Milicic has bounced around quite a bit in the NBA, with each team taking on his talents perhaps hopelessly believing it has what it takes to turn this seven-footer into a legitimate NBA center.  As much documented, the talent is probably there but we will never...
