The Celtics are now scheduling practices later in the day, and will limit the number of morning shootarounds on gamedays during the season. Why the change?

Asked why, Rivers replied: "Legs. I think if you're done with your
work, I don't know why you need a shootaround. Guys are fresher, I
think, if we walk it over right before (the game). They pick it up and
they actually have a better chance of remembering it, rather than at 10
a.m. A lot of this comes from the sleep deprivation guy, this is the
main reason we're doing it. Clearly, our practices this year have been
noticeably better because they are later, they got more sleep, more

Now only if my wife would subscribe to this theory. Let me sleep in, and I will be a more effective father and husband.
