I used to play basketball, from the years of like 5-7. I became so good at it. But once I entered high school, the only people that played were year 12 students so I just gave up on nearly all physical activity lol. 

 

Not an NBA fan here, though.

Two sides to Doc Rivers’s exit as Celtics coach

doc-big-7503.jpg

When the possibility of coaching the Clippers became more of a reality, Doc Rivers didn’t exactly pledge his loyalty to the Celtics.

 

 

It’s not that Danny Ainge or Doc Rivers are stretching the truth, they are just telling their sides of the story of how their divorce occurred. The fans of Boston are playing the role of settlement judge.

Did Rivers simply want out of Boston and forced his way to Los Angeles by giving the Celtics a series of ultimatums, or attempt to persuade the organization to push through with the trade to the Clippers by expressing ambivalence about the future. Or did the Celtics, looking to rebuild and remove Rivers’s remaining $21 million from their books, urge the Clippers to execute a deal because they knew Rivers wouldn’t be on board with a rebuild?

The answer lies somewhere in the middle. Rivers wanted to coach for championships. He didn’t want to coach a team without Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and he truly believed his message was getting stale in the locker room. When the possibility of coaching the Clippers became more of a reality, Rivers didn’t exactly pledge his loyalty to the Celtics.

@K.D.A I think Lakers can't keep a hold on Howard.  He probably bring his talent to Rockets and start playing with Harden and Jeremy Lin.

Hola. I like the Celtics and OKC. I used to play basketball in middle school and 1 year in high school, but now I quit because I just don't like playing anymore OTL. And my skills aren't that great anyway so I was more of a bench warmer this year.  :>_>:

 

I'm pissed that KG, PP and JET got traded to Brooklyn for some guys that have their contracts expiring and a fame whore.  :donthinkso: I hate the idea of letting Rondo go because we want to build the franchise around him w/ Green and maybe Bradley? Dallas wants Howard, Dirk and Rondo as their next trio (instead of CPaul if hes gonna sign with the Clippers). My kokoro can't take it if he gets traded or doesn't sign with Boston again next year (contract expiring) but then I understand if he wants to take his talents else where and not waste it.

i heard he also intlk with alot of other teams aswell 

would be really interesting to see them 3 in the same team 

but both Lin and Howard were doing really poor last season 

hope they will do well like they did the previous team this season

Sad case for Celtics, after Allen left, Doc river went to Clippers as a head coach and KG leaving to Nets. It is hard for  Rondo and Paul Pierce carry the team.

A number of rumors indicate Howard will get alot of attention during trade period. I hear some recent news Rondo might be trade to Dallas Mavericks

The Celtics have reportedly talked with the Mavericks about a possible trade of Rajon Rondo

Pierce went to Brooklyn w/ KG too lol. Their like a package together so I'm guessing thats why KG waived his no-trade thing to go with Paul. But I guess the new Brooklyn lineup would be beast and some people think they could get far in the playoffs with that. But then theres Kidd coaching for his first time so.. >-<

i dun support either team lol but i do like some of the players from OKC tho

:donthinkso:  not a great move from Celtic there and if they really gonna let go of Rondo then this is the end for them 

btw when will he back from his injury ?

Eh we gotta go in rebuild mode anyway so with or without Rondo those are the only options.  :._.: We allowed some guys to play summer league for us and I think 1 of them could be a backup Rondo. He already got his surgery back in February I think so he's already good to go for '13-'14.

This is getting bad, There were no longer a big four exist in Celtics, and i agree  Brooklyn is going to be beast with the help of  old Celtics players and they might win next year playoff game.

 

I didn't know Kidd became the head coach for brooklyn and i thought he was retired and not coming back to nba. Good for him.

I think Pierce's contract is expiring next year and KG still has 2 more years left? Idk I gotta look that up. But Kidd should hopefully not eff up their first year because they might not have another season with the same guys that could go well into the playoffs..
