People told Doc to pass on the Celtics job

People told Doc to pass on the Celtics job

I've got to give credit where credit is due.  Celtics.com is stepping up this preseason.  They've been posting interviews with everyone and making a lot of good stuff available to C's fans. Today, they put up a 5 minute interview with Doc Rivers.  Among the topics:  his association with Red Auerbach… who is great coaching [...]

Ho hum… another day, another piece about how awesome the chemistry is on this team and how smart the new guys are.

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc Rivers is an NBA coach… a former coach of the year and an NBA champion. I'm a slob who sometimes drinks alone, could stand to lose a few pounds, and uses terms like "we" and "us" when referring to his favorite pro teams. So I get why Doc Rivers doesn't want to listen to [...]

Doc’s starting this crap early

Doc’s starting this crap early

Camp is not even a full week old and Doc Rivers is already forgetting to limit KG's minutes. "Today was a day I probably should have taken him out more." That would explain the video we just saw of KG moving around stiffly.  Doc said he was starting and stopping the guys a lot and [...]

KG: “I thought Doc was trying to kill me”

KG: “I thought Doc was trying to kill me”

So tweet the C's KG practiced for the first 75 percent of today's session according to Doc. Maybe we can all stop holding our breath a little when it comes to KG.  We're starting to get the bigger picture and it's not that scary.  After practice, KG said he felt OK. "It went well today. [...]

“He’s normal again”

“He’s normal again”

Someone opened the floodgates on the KG news.  Jess Camerato caught up with some of the Celtics after their charity golf tournament… and they're pretty encouraged by what they see out of KG. “He’s happy, he’s talking more, which I didn’t think was possible,” Rivers said following the USI Shamrock Classic at the Nashawtuc Country [...]

Finally, A Replacement for Posey

Finally, A Replacement for Posey

Just the other day, I was blogging about the lack of attention given to the Marquis Daniels acquisition. Turns out, Doc Rivers agrees with me: “Marquis, that’s the guy no one talks about,’’ Rivers said. “I’m really looking forward to coaching him. I didn’t like coaching against him; I thought he was very difficult to [...]
