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.

While Celtics tickets aren’t the most expensive in the league this year, they are significantly more expensive than they were last season. Last year the ticket average was just $59.08, and only four games had an average over $100. This season the average price is $179.56, a 204% increase from last season.

Even if the Celtics aren’t a serious championship contender, there will still be plenty of expensive games on the Celtics schedule at the TD Garden. On the secondary market, Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers tickets for both games in Boston have an average price above $300. There are also nine other games with an average price above $200, a season after only four games averaged over $100.

With the Celtics bound for another 25-30 win season, I don’t see anyone paying that kind of money for tickets. Not even insane diehards like KWAPT.

Just hang tight and that secondary market should come crashing back to reality.

On Page 2, Doc Rivers makes a long term commitment to the Clippers.

Doc Rivers’ new five-year contract to be president and coach of the Los Angeles Clippers is worth more than $50 million, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

New Clippers owner Steve Ballmer announced Rivers’ extension on Wednesday. The team replaced the remaining two years on his original three-year, $21 million deal with a new contract that runs through the 2018-19 season.

Celtic for life, er, I mean Clipper for life.

    Caption? The Rondo photo is self-explanatory.

    This “signing ceremony” photo was taken 10 months ago, when Rondo signed his shoe deal with Anta, a sportswear company based in China.

    He`s carefully scrutinizing the contractual terms, one final time, before attaching his signature. No big deal.

    When it comes to tickets, I only follow one strategy… Buy the cheapest tickets I can find, scout out the closest thing I can find to front row seats by halftime, and make the move at half. Bought $10 tickets one time last year, by halftime I was sitting in the seat DIRECTLY behind Mike & Tommy. Had everyone blowing up my cellphone during the post halftime interview with M&T. Even got to say a few words to them. At the end of the game, we were already behind security so we were able to walk right out onto the parquet (where I obviously pretended to spot up for 3 with an imaginary ball). Mike Napoli was out on the court randomly and took a picture with us.

    I have no clue how I wasn’t kicked out of those seats, but that was the best $10 investment I ever made. I was eventually kicked off the floor after the game (otherwise I might have been tempted to explore the locker room next).

    I have followed this strategy dozens of times by now, and it works more than it doesn’t. Sometimes you get the late arriving a-holes who kick you out, then you need to scramble to find new seats (or go back to your original ones). Usually not a problem but you miss some of the game moving around.

    If you’re wondering how I get by the dudes in the gold vests/jackets, you just have to walk by them like you belong there (waiting for a mass of people to walk by at the same time helps too).
