Your Morning Dump… Where Ainge doesn’t want blame his caddie Thursday night

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. Leading up to the draft, Ainge delved into his philosophies on the process, and not surprisingly, at least some of them can be traced back to Celtics patriarch Red Auerbach. “I talked with Red a lot, back when...

Red Auerbach must be spinning in his grave. How do you NOT put the Pope's name on the Pope's jersey? Boston Celtics minority owner James Pallotta was at the Vatican on Wednesday in advance of the Coppa Italia final involving one of his soccer teams.
