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.
As the Celtics prepare to begin Summer League play in Orlando this Sunday, a lot of the focus will be on first round pick Kelly Olynyk. But another guy that fans should keep an eye on is Colton Iverson. Danny Ainge has had his eye on Iverson for quite a while:
“Colton is a player that we were excited by in the draft and had him ranked much higher than he ended up going,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. “We were really fortunate to acquire a second-round pick to get Colton.
“Colton is a kid that we’ve watched since his freshman year of college at the University of Minnesota. We loved his intensity from Day 1 and identified him as someone that we needed to keep a real close eye on.”
Iverson spent two seasons with the Gophers but elected to sit out a year and transfer to Colorado State with th...

Ainge has repeatedly shot down ideas of trading Rondo since he completed a trade last Thursday that sent franchise...

No fan wants to see their favorite player (let alone a franchise type player) leave their team. It has happened before with Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and Charles Barkley.
But it is the nature of the NBA business and no player is safe or un-tradable from a team.
Paul Pierce is one of those players that many thouht he'd retire in green and white. Yet the Celtics made roster...

The prime example, of course, is Rick Pitino, who flamed out by record (102-146) and rhetoric when coaching...

Although Stevens, has had an incredible run as the bench boss for Butler University; having success at the NCAA level, is no guarantee...
