Rajon Rondo: living in the now

When you talk to most professional athletes, they can usually rattle off who their favorite players were that came before them. Not Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard is focused on the present and presently, that means beating the Heat and winning a championship.


Darko picked Boston over Miami

#20 wasn't the only free agent who had a choice between the Garden and South Beach. Darko Milicic was also courted by Pat Riley, but Darko opted for a "role" in Doc's rotation rather than a spot at the end of Spoelstra's bench.

Two former Celtics are currently out of work. Just thought you'd like to know.

Doc cancels practice Saturday

Doc decided to give the guys the day off today.

C's scrap Saturday practice - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

After three straight days of practice, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers called a late audible and cancelled Saturday's session, giving his players a final day off before the regular season opens Tuesday in Miami. Players came into the team's facility for treatment and light shooting, but Rivers scrapped the late-morning session. The Celtics engaged in three lengthy practices this week and also had the team's annual Shamrock Foundation Gala on Friday night at TD Garden.


Celtics formally waive Downs and Kurz

The Celtics made official cuts yesterday to bring the roster down to 15 players.

C's waive Downs, Kurz - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

The Boston Celtics formally announced the release of training camp invites Micah Downs and Rob Kurz on Friday, officially trimming their roster to the opening-day capacity of 15 players. The pair had not been spotted at practice this week and the announcement had been expected, particularly after Kris Joseph was told after Wednesday's practice he had made the 15-man roster. It will be interesting to see if either Downs or Kurz lands with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.

Danny had some nice things to say about the guy that did make the roster - second rounder Kris Joseph.

Quick hits from Danny Ainge - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

"Well, Kris is a great kid. He has high character. He works very hard. He's very athletic, and he does things that you can't teach with his athleticism, and I think Kris is going to be a kid that will spend a lot of time developing this year, probably won't get a chance to play, unless there's injuries, much, but we think that he has a big upside."

Enjoy Maine Kris!


Jason Terry: "we're the best pick-setting team"

During this training camp, the Celtics have put an emphasis on pick-setting, a part of the game that is usually overlooked and vastly underappreciated.

Doc has no hesitations on using Chris Wilcox

None at all.

Practice report: C's staying sharp - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Rivers said he wouldn't be afraid to toss Chris Wilcox into a game situation despite the veteran forward/center having missed most of camp and all eight of the team's exhibition games. "At the end of the day, we still trust him on defense, we still trust him on the glass, [and we] still trust him as far as running the floor," said Rivers. "So I wouldn’t hesitate to put him out in the game. At all."

Good to hear. Hoping for a nice year from Chris.

Practice report: Barbosa, Wilcox, and Milicic run

The Celtics just wrapped up a grueling three-hour practice with the entire 15 fully healthy minus Avery Bradley.


Avery Bradley's steady recovery

Here's the latest update from Avery Bradley on his road back to full health (knock on wood).

Bradley eyes next recovery checkpoint - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

The signs of progress are there for Bradley; he can now shoot jump shots, do some light weightlifting, and run through non-contact offensive sets. He said his next step is continuing to strengthen his shoulders and his arms, to help prepare him for when he returns to full-contact drills. "That's the big thing for me right now, trying to get stronger, so I'm able to do contact things," Bradley said. "Like right now I can walk through the offense, but obviously I can't jump into practice and have a full practice yet. I wish I could, but I'm getting there.


GMs can't decide on Jared Sullinger

A total of 16 general managers passed on Jared Sullinger on draft day. So it is confusing that when all the GM's were anonymously polled, many of them picked Sully as a sleeper from this draft.

The Rise and Fall and Rise of Jared Sullinger "

Yet when it was time to answer the survey, 17.2% of GMs pegged Jared Sullinger as the most likely "sleeper" success from this draft class. He got more votes than Andrew Nicholson or Terrence Jones, both drafted ahead of him. It would be nice to imagine that none of the GMs who voted for him were ones who passed on him, but I wouldn’t bet on it. If even one of them is one who passed on Sullinger, it’s fairly telling about how being the general manager of a team can mess you up.

Ainge on Jeff Green - a better position to thrive

Danny Ainge doesn't think that Green is just being more aggressive. He's thriving in a better situation for himself than he was thrust into 2 years ago.

For this year’s Celtics, Green means go -

He showed an occasional sign of things to come during the last few months of the 2010-11 season, but this is clearly a better Jeff Green. “I think that’s a function of his team and his role,” Ainge said. “You know, when Jeff was playing with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant (with the Thunder), I mean, they’re obviously the focal point. Then when he came to Boston, he was a guy that was trying to fit into a team that had four All-Stars on it. “So I don’t see what’s happening now as just a function of, ‘Oh, I’m going to be more aggressive.’ I mean, when you’re in a certain role, it’s tough to just take that initiative on yourself. That has to be a function of the team and your role within that team, how your coach sees that role. So I just don’t think that it’s that simple.”


Doc Rivers has unique relationship with Rondo

Interesting look at Doc's career over on Grantland, including this take on his relationship with Rondo.

Doc Rivers's career arc - Grantland

He won a championship, nearly won another, and now is facing down a rebuilding job not dissimilar to the one he took on in Orlando, when he first started developing his coaching chops. His star is a stubborn, occasionally recalcitrant point guard named Rajon Rondo, and their interpersonal dynamic is one of the most intriguing in the league. It's unlike the relationship between, say, Mike Brown and Kobe Bryant, or between Erik Spoelstra and his two superstars, because the power in the relationship in Boston is far more evenly divided between coach and player, and also because both of these guys are uniquely articulate about what they perceive their relative places in the universe to be. This is the latest thing that has made the now-long career of Doc Rivers worth watching. I don't break many chairs anymore, but I'd be lying if I said I weren't fascinated by what comes next.

Jeff Green stands out in preseason

The one player that had perhaps the most to prove this preseason was Jeff Green and he's the one that might have stood out the most.

Big Preseason Has Green’s Confidence Running High | The Official Site of the BOSTON CELTICS

"Jeff (Green) stood out, probably more than everybody," Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said of his team’s preseason. "I thought he established himself with everybody, which I thought was very important for him. We can tell them how good he is, (but) he had to show them. And I thought he did that."

Good for him. I'm really rooting for this kid. Let us just hope that he continues this success into the games that count.


Barbosa is fine with his place on depth chart

Gotta hand it to Leandro, he comes off sounding very mature and realistic here. He's got a lot of guards ahead of him on the depth chart, but that doesn't deter him. - Blogs: Celtics Insider" Blog Archive " Barbosa not scared off by Celtics’ guard depth

"One thing I will give him credit for (is) I think he had us zeroed in on his radar, and he understood all the players in front of him, and he didn’t care," the coach said. "He kept saying that, which is refreshing. You know, ‘I understand that I may not play or I may play, but I’m going to be on a team that, if I can play, I want to help.’ "I was very honest with him. You know, there’s a chance with the numbers… and he said, ‘I’m not here to ruffle any feathers. I just want to be on a team that wins, and hopefully I can help.’"

With the way injuries have bitten this team in recent years, I wouldn't be surprised if he was needed to play a significant role at some point, but it is nice that he's willing to wait his turn if that doesn't happen.

Doc Rivers giving several players rest

Doc gave a number of players the night off, but it was "nothing serious."

Doc gives positive prognosis -

Pierce, Garnett, Brandon Bass, Darko Milicic and Chris Wilcox all sat out the game. "It’s nothing serious," said Rivers. "This was a scheduled day (off) for Kevin — and Paul, actually, even though Paul tweaked his (left) ankle. I wasn’t going to play him tonight regardless. I told them that before the Brooklyn game (Thursday). Darko (right wrist) would have played. He’ll probably play (tonight at home against Philadelphia), and Brandon (bruised right knee), we’ll just wait and see. But they’re fine."


Jeff Green sets high goals on defense

Following a very solid game on both sides of the court, Jeff Green expressed a desire to be an excellent defensive player. - Blogs: Celtics Insider" Blog Archive " Green gets defensive in Celtic comeback win

"That’s my calling," Green said of his D. "I’ve got to be a guy who can go out there and guard the best player on the opposite team, whether it’s Carmelo, LeBron, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — doesn’t matter. I see myself as being one of the top defensive players in this league, and I’ve just got to go out there and prove it."

Rivers will mix and match lineups

Who will start? Who will finish games? What kinds of crazy lineups is Doc going to use? I'm not sure he even knows at this point.

Rivers Plans To Mix And Match " | Hang Time Blog

Rivers used five different starting lineups in the Celtics’ first five preseason games, but has started Courtney Lee and Jared Sullinger in each of the last two. The coach likes the rookie with the starting group, having previously said that he wants to play Sullinger mostly at the four. "I don’t know if that’s the way I’m going to go, but I do like that," Rivers said after Thursday’s win in Brooklyn. "And I like Brandon with the second unit, because it gives us another scorer, a guy who can play. "Having said that, I don’t know what type of team we have. I’m not sure we’ll have a set lineup this year. I think there will be nights where they have a quick four that we start Brandon. Then there will be nights where they don’t and you start Sullinger. There may be nights when we start Paul and Jeff [Green] at the two and the three. I hope we don’t we have to do that, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the way we went."

I think I have a headache thinking about all that.


Doc moving on from Ray Allen's departure

I think Doc speaks for a lot of us when he says the following. - Blogs: Celtics Insider" Blog Archive " Doc over Ray’s departure… but still "disappointed"

Asked when he got over Allen’s decline of the Celtic offer and his free agent move to the Heat, Rivers said, "Oh, I embraced the challenge right away, so I moved past that part. "I’ll always be disappointed with that because of the way it went down. But it is what it is, so I’m over it, but, you know, you’re always disappointed about stuff. But as far as our team, I moved on the next day. "We were trying to build our team. We already had Jason Terry; we knew that. So my next move was Courtney (Lee)."

Well said as usual Doc.

Doc may be going to Rio

As has been rumored and reported since the Olympics in London, Doc Rivers is still on the short list of head coaching candidates for the Olympics in Rio.

Doc Rivers, Doug Collins in mix for 2016 Olympic post -

Doc Rivers and Doug Collins were standing just feet apart on the sideline as the Celtics [team stats] met the 76ers, and their names have been in even closer proximity in regards to a job opening. The two are among the few names being mentioned most prominently as potential head coaches of the United States men’s national team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. In separate discussions yesterday, they both took steps to assert they are not campaigning for the position. "Honestly, I’ve given it zero thought," Rivers said. "It’d be an honor, but that’s out of my hands."

Sounds like a great experience. Hope he gets it.


Jason Terry: Dear Diary, I hate LA and Miami

Jason Terry is writing a diary for ESPN Boston and in his first entry, he talks about what it means to be a Celtic and what it would mean to win a championship in Beantown.


Celtics vs. Heat: small ball vs. small ball

Throughout training camp, Doc has spoken in length about finding combinations with the new roster and beating the Heat. Today, Zach Lowe of Grantland took a look at what Boston might do defensively to match up with Miami.


Garnett questionable tonight against the Sixers

According to Gary Washburn of the Globe, Garnett might sit out tonight's preseason game in Philadelphia.

6 preseason games in 9 days

The lockout schedule returns! Except this time is is a welcome change of pace.

Boston Celtics, Doc Rivers set to plow through exhibitions

The Boston Celtics launched into a game-heavy stretch that features six exhibition tilts in nine nights starting with Saturday's overtime loss to the New York Knicks at the XL Center. After spending a week in Europe, the Celtics caught a few days of practice last week but will now plow through their remaining preseason slate. And that's just fine by coach Doc Rivers.

"I love it. Listen, get them all out of the way, then you have practice time," Rivers said before Saturday's game. "I think we have [eight practice] days before the first game [in Miami on Oct. 30], and I like that better than having that last preseason game and having four or five days before your first game. I like the way we're doing it. I think we should play eight in a row."

Preseason is the best.


Terry is up for any role Doc gives him

Jason Terry is a fun guy but he's also a solid veteran leader that's willing and eager to fill any role that Doc Rivers wants to put him in.

Terry never one to start trouble -

But even though the Celtics [team stats] have Courtney Lee ready to step into the starting shooting guard role, Terry has been put on alert by coach Doc Rivers that the job may he his for a while as the club waits for Avery Bradley to return from shoulder surgery. "He said, ‘Until Avery gets healthy, just keep an open mind. We may need you to do it,’ " Terry said. "He said, ‘We’re just going to continue to search and find the right combination and mix of guys.’ "I told him, ‘Whatever you want to do.’ "

Funny, that seems like a stark contrast with that other guy that used to be here.

KG gives rookies nicknames

Kevin Garnett is one of a kind and he loves his rookies.

KG plays the (nick)name game - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Jared Sullinger is "Sully." Dionte Christmas is "Temple," because that's where he went to college. And Kevin Garnett says Fab Melo is "Melo" because, "I don't like really calling a man 'Fab.'" The Boston Celtics rookies are getting nicknames, compliments of the man himself known as "KG" and "The Big Ticket." Garnett went out of his way on Friday to make it clear that he's doing it to be affectionate and not because, like many veterans throughout basketball and other sports, he can't be troubled to learn their real names. "My personal connection is a nickname. I'm not disrespecting people by not knowing their names," Garnett said. "Some people don't even talk to rookies."

Stoudemire May Miss Game Against Celtics -

Now it appears that Stoudemire might miss Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics. Stoudemire participated in the team’s walk-through but did not practice with the team. He was seen shooting on another court while the rest of the Knicks scrimmaged, and he finished practice in the training room. Woodson said Stoudemire is questionable for Saturday’s game.


Heat never far from Celtics minds

The Heat is on Celtics’ minds -

"They shouldn’t be," Rivers said when asked if the Heat are ever far from his players’ minds. "But then, a lot of teams shouldn’t be — Philly, Atlanta, you can go down the list. There’s a lot of good teams in the East and we’re going to have to get through them all to get to where we want to go. But the best team in the NBA is Miami, so I think the East and the West, they should be on everyone’s mind."

Bradley ahead of schedule

Always good to hear that he's feeling well. Just hope he doesn't rush back.

Eager Avery Bradley ahead of schedule -

Celtics coach Doc Rivers has pegged mid-December as the target for Bradley’s return, but the 21-year-old is eager to accelerate that timeline. “That’s what they have right now. I’ve just got to take it day-by-day and see how I feel,” Bradley said. “I’m ahead of schedule now, so you never know.”

Take your time young man. Get yourself right.


No timetable for Wicox return

I feel bad for Wilcox, who was so excited to get back to basketball and now has to go back into a waiting pattern.

False start for Wilcox - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Wilcox's return date is still up in the air, though he was back on the court getting up shots after practice on Thursday. Head coach Doc Rivers said that Wilcox won't be returning soon, and Wilcox himself was hesitant to lay down a specific time frame. "I leave that up to the trainers, and, now, like I said, they just want me to get in shape and get back healthy so I won't have to miss any more practices or game situations," Wilcox said. "So, I'm just trying to get my body right and get my confidence back up."


It takes a village to raise Jason Terry

Another great piece from Jessica Camerato at on Jason Terry and his many influences that have helped him in his career. It's helping me forget how well #20 shot today in China against the Clippers.

Hollinger rips Jeff Green signing

So, John Hollinger is not a big fan of the Jeff Green signing. He brings up all the usual reasons and tosses in some hyperbole for extra spice.

2012-13 NBA preview: Boston Celtics outlook - ESPN (Insider)

Can they amnesty Green yet, or do they have to wait until the games start? Maybe the Celtics are just trying to keep us on our toes and prove they're capable of screwing up, too. Here's what we know: Green was a fungible player before he missed last season with a heart problem; guaranteeing him four years (with a player option on the fourth!) at a rate far beyond any rational market level is something we might expect from a couple of the league's bumbling organizations, but certainly not this one. I can't stress this enough: Green is 26 and played four full seasons in the league, and after all that time there's no evidence he's actually any good and considerable evidence that he's a health risk. Yet he's being paid like a second-tier star. This was, without a doubt, the worst contract of the summer.

Ouch. The worst of the summer huh? I guess time will tell.


Jared Sullinger will start a few games

In a move that is simultaneously surprising and not surprising at all, Doc is going to experiment with Jared Sullinger in the starting lineup during the preseason. Darko too.

Rivers considering Sullinger in the starting lineup -Celtics blog - Boston Globe basketball news

"I’m going to try (Sullinger) a couple of games, and then I’ll throw Brandon in and then I’ll put Darko (Milicic) in a couple of times," Rivers said following the team's workout Wednesday. "You can read into it whatever you want. But there’s been no decision made on anything."

Interesting. I like that Doc is being flexible and experimenting when the games don't matter. It takes a while to see what you have and how the pieces fit together.


KG: "I don't really talk a lot"

Kevin Garnett talks to teammates on defense, he talks to opponents, he talks to himself, he even talks to the basket stansion before each game. But apparently he doesn't talk much to players during practice.

Green Street " Kevin Garnett: ‘I don’t really talk a lot’

"That’s why I don’t really talk a lot. I like to be the example. Anything after practice that I can help them with, I kind of pull them to the side and show them different things. We watch a lot of film in the locker room and talk. For these young guys, man, I just try to be there for when they need me. I’m not a guy to push myself on anybody, but anything that they want to know, anything that they’re having trouble with, I try to be accessible to them."

So he leads by example THEN leads by teaching. Bottom line, this guy is a great mentor.


Celtics Have Very Tame Rookie Hazing

There is rookie hazing and then there's rookie introductions with maybe making them sing a song.

EuroTrip: Bonding over basketball - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

"We had to introduce ourselves to the whole organization," Jared Sullinger explained. "Pretty much all we had to do was, when we went to dinner, they brought us up, they asked us where we were from, what school, all the little things like that, and then they said, 'What's your favorite song?' You had to tell them your favorite song and then you had to sing it ... Stuff like that is fun." Sullinger said he went with Public Service Announcement by Jay-Z, off The Black Album. He and his fellow rookies didn't have to labor through any embarrassing first-year hazing, as the older C's kept things pretty straightforward. While some teams, even in other sports, exploit their rookies with embarrassing costumes and duties, the Celtics choose a more conservative route. "Our rookie duties are pretty easy," Sullinger said. "They ask you to do something, you do it. That's it. It's nothing outrageous, nothing crazy. They won't put us in harm's way. It's just, 'Can you get me a bag of chips?' or something like that. It's easy. It's nothing hard."

I am not a proponent of going to extremes in rookie hazing, but you have to at least embarrass and humble them at some point don't you? Make them get bad haircuts. Have them wear women's clothes down the street in Milan, the fashion mecca. Something besides a song and "get me a bag of chips."

Oh well. We'll always have '08 when they made Big Baby eat random things. That was fun.

Poor Bobcats.

And if you are curious about what the odds were last year, here's a list.


KG no longer on shouting terms with Ray (parody)

Note: The Onion is a parody website. This is not real news. This is just for fun. Disclaimer over.

Kevin Garnett No Longer On Roaring Terms With Ray Allen

In response to the shooting guard’s decision to sign with the Miami Heat earlier this offseason, Celtics forward Kevin Garnett confirmed Wednesday that he’s no longer on growling terms with longtime friend and former teammate Ray Allen. "It is what it is. I will not be shouting at the top of my lungs in that guy’s face from now on," said Garnett

I'll bet Big Baby misses KG.

(h/t Red's Army)


Lee sees championship vibe

Courtney Lee likes what he sees from the Celtics thus far.

Newcomer Lee likes ‘vibe’ of Green -

"The vibe here is totally different," said Lee, who will start at least until Avery Bradley returns in December. "It’s one of the best 1-through-15 teams I’ve been on where everybody is being cool with each other and on the same page. The coaching staff is committed to winning a championship. "That’s not a knock on any other team," he said. "I’m sure the goal was the same everywhere else. But here you can feel it and see it, instead of just hearing about it. There’s the constant reminders, the constant videos in the locker room playing last year’s playoffs. The conversations you have with everyone from management all the way down to the ball boys and the equipment guys. Everyone is committed to winning a championship.

That's the sense that I get from this distance, so seeing it up close must be pretty impressive.


Courtney Lee bounces back

Lee didn't have a very good first game, but the second preseason game was very solid for him.

Lee shows potential in Milan - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Even though he came off the bench on Sunday and played fewer minutes with the starters, Lee still looked far more at ease within Boston's sets, attacking the rim consistently, and showing off the athleticism that will allow head coach Doc Rivers to utilize him in multiple scenarios this season. Rivers said after the game that the lineup change -- Jason Terry and Jared Sullinger replacing Lee and Brandon Bass, respectively, in the starting lineup -- was a product of it being preseason and nothing else.

Doc can say what he wants, but I reserve the right to read way too much into who he starts in any given preseason game. That's part of the fun.

Darko Milicic: Point Center

One of the selling points of Darko Milicic is his passing ability. The Celtics really like running a center up to the top of the key and letting him catch and turn to look at his options to pass. Sounds like Darko is a great fit in that role.

Olimpia Milano coach can dream of Green -

Milicic had nine rebounds and four blocked shots in 19 minutes Sunday against Olimpia Milano. He also had three assists, and often kept the second unit in a flow. "He’s been phenomenal, with his defense and passing," said Rivers. "We were really using him as a point guard on the floor with that second unit, because we didn’t have a real point guard on the floor. He’s been wonderful."

Point center is a new position to me, but I can dig it.


Rondo: "I think it's our best shot"

Between the roster moves and the bonding that has gone on already, Rajon Rondo is optimistic about the team's chances this year.

Italian fans get their Irish up for visitors -

“I think it’s our best shot,” Rondo said. “Not to discredit the 2008 (championship) team that we had, but if this team buys into the system and listens to (coach) Doc (Rivers), the sky is the limit. The championship could be ours. Not a lot of teams can say they can compete for a championship each year, and definitely this year with the talent we have, that’s our one goal.”

European union -

“I think these last four or five days we’ve been able to bond and it’s translated on the court in terms of chemistry,” he said. “We’re moving the ball better than we ever have the past couple of years I’ve been here. We’re very unselfish, not just offensively but defensively. We try to help one another and it’s translated on the court.”


Good early showing for Darko

So far, the Darko experiment is really going well.

Darko's immediate impact - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Playing in the second and fourth quarters, Milicic seemed to embrace his hefty 7-foot frame on Sunday, utilizing his considerable size in every area he was able to find success. He used it to block shots, to reach rebounds ahead of the opposition, and he used it on the high post -- the spot on the floor the Celtics have stuck him at most through two preseason games. C's head coach Doc Rivers understands that he has a capable passer in Milicic, which is why he's so willing to line him up at either one of the elbows, where he receives an entry pass and allows the action to develop around him. A quick kickout pass can lead to an open look for a teammate, or allow Milic to re-position himself to set a bulky screen to free up one of Boston's perimeter players.

Can't wait to see what Tommy Heinsohn has to say about this guy.


Rondo Is Into Fashion Right Now

First it was a GQ internship, now a trip to Milan.

Style points for Rondo -

"I don’t know. I’m very into fashion right now," Rondo said. "It just depends on the time. I know these guys had fashion week two weeks ago. I missed that one, but you never know. In the future I might come over here and enjoy fashion week as well." Rondo has now increased the stakes of his ongoing style rivalry with Josh Smith, the Hawks forward and good friend who was Rondo’s high school teammate at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. As Rondo marveled in an interview during the Celtics’ first-round series against Atlanta last spring, he and Smith would often make the same shoe purchases without telling each other. The same applied to cars, though that’s a hobby for another day.

Rondo is too sexy for this catwalk.
