Doc Rivers spoke about Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen during an appearance this morning at the Positive Coaching Alliance panel at Fenway Park. CSNNE’s Carolyn Manno tweeted out some quotes:
Rivers: “I don’t know if Kevin is coming back but let’s just say yes. Positive thinking.”
When asked about KG’s future with Celtics he seemed more optimistic than pessimistic to me. Seemed like he was leaning towards yes.
He also said KG is the best team player he’s ever been around. “It’s hard to not have a favorite player when you have Kevin.”
Rivers says his gut feeling is that Kevin Garnett will be back with the Celtics next season. “I have no basis for that, just how I feel.”
On Ray Allen/Heat rumors: “Ray is doing what he should do. He’s listening to offers. Other teams are interested, but we’re interested too.”
Not sure about you, but I’m convinced Garnett is coming back (Please Jesus, I’ll never ask for anything again).
Glad Doc is throwing some perspective on the Ray Allen rumors. Just about everyone (except me) has him leaving town.
