At about 9:30 this morning, various Celtics media members announced the team had scheduled a noon press conference with Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers.
We were finally going to get some answers. Is Doc staying? Is he quitting and turning his back on the Boston fan base?
An hour later we were informed that the presser had been postponed until Monday.
Did the mere announcement of a press conference get the Clippers back at the bargaining table?
Possibly. But this isn’t only about extracting additional assets from Donald Sterling’s hands, it involves satisfying Lord Stern’s legal minions.
Clippers reporter Mark Heisler speculates that both sides might negotiate a future (2014-16) #1 pick for Doc Rivers and leave KG for DAJ for another day.
I remain baffled at the process. Somewhere over the past 6 weeks, the Celtics morphed into a chaotic, disjointed basketball operation.
In other words, we became the Knicks.
