Your Morning Dump… Doc Rivers is pretty damn happy

Chuck - Red's Army July 24, 2012 Celtics News, Doc Rivers, The Morning Dump 18 Comments

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.

“I don’t want to say too much, but I couldn’t be happier with where we’re at,” Rivers said.

He still insists he knew this would all work out.

“I was very confident,” Rivers said. “I mean, Danny works his butt off. Him and his staff, they put in more hours than probably anyone in the league. They’ve done an unbelievable job without having a lot of resources.”

True enough, the Celtics managed to add two players at midlevel exception money ($5 million to start) and keep all but one key free agent, while subtracting Allen and players who weren’t a lock for the rotation.

“I would say that’s a pretty good summer,” Rivers said.

Herald – Can’t ask for more

If Doc’s happy, I’m thrilled

Most Celtics fans are happy with what transpired this off-season. In our latest poll – What grade would you give Danny Ainge for his offseason acquisitions? – 94% gave Ainge an A or B.

Now for the bad news, the tumbleweeds are blowing in. Celtics news is fading away until the team heads for Europe in September/October.

    I love the picture you chose to go with this article. Made me laugh.

    A great draft & summer for Danny. I think he overpayed for Green but you gotta love this roster, a great mix of vets & youth, and certainly more athletic than last year. I would have liked to see Dooling back though, not so much for that wacky shot but I loved his energy coming off the bench. GO C’s!

      wacky? Idk what games you watched but the couple of times Dooling played he played well, shooting trey’s, good defense. C’mon now! give credit where it is due, rather than that bench talk.

    I don’t agree with Ainge resigning Garnett for all of that money because it sucks up all of the Celtics’ cap space for the next three years; however, the drafting of jared Sullinger and Feb Melo along with acquiring Jason Terry, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee certainly makes up for it.

      Kris humphries just signed for 12 mil a year. What did you think the going rate for kg was going to be? You mentioned earlier that they could have gotten him for cheaper. Please elaborate.

    • RedsLoveChild

      Signing Green for $36-40 was the only blemish on DA`s summer.

      Screwed up big time on that one!

    Danny Ainge is a punk and will always be a punk. Throwing a ball in Mario Elle’s face at the end of a losing playoff series? He’s was a sore loser and bush league player. No one in H-Town has respect for him. Punk.

    • KY Celts fan

      No one in H-Town’s opinion matters. Enjoy that Rockets roster of yours.

      • TARHEELCELTICSCOWBOYSFAN4LIFE

        Y the hell is h-town on this convo lol

        • Gixr1

          Just hopping on all bandwagons! I see you. You left the Yankees out though.

        LMAO Rockets wack a$$…

    • Lee in Oregon

      No one gives an F what you losers in Houston think…….just make it to the finals every 20 years and take your ass-whipping like a man.

      Yes, DA did whip a ball in Mario’s face (as a member of the Suns). He apologized and I joke about it all the time.

      ps, thanks for Courtney Lee- we’ll call Kevin if we need anymore guys off that crap-list you call a roster.

    • D Wade

      Dude, how old are you grandpa? good thing you know how to use a computer.

  • D Wade

    Now we know who is the better coach, and his name isn’t Doc. It’s coach Spo
