Conley Sr. added that the dream scenario would be for Oden to land in Boston where the Bill Russell comparisons are ongoing. The Celtics have the second best chance at the No. 1 picks behind Memphis, which has the most Ping-Pong in the lottery based on their league-worst record.
"We're in the process of laying out [the game plan for Oden]," Conley Sr. said. "He's the next generation of a big man. He's a center who wants to be a center with great athletic ability. Greg is going to be unique.
Note to David Stern... The ideal place for Oden to land for all involved is Boston. He would fit here very nicely on a team that is poised to make a run next season. Boston is a big market and a strong Celtics team would be good for the NBA. Remember back when Boston was on top? Things were very good for the NBA. Please, Mr Stern, make all our dreams come true.
I think Carlisle would fit very well in Boston. He is a much more structured coach than Doc but I think the kids would react well to him. He is a good coach and I agree that he could improve our team results. But, I doubt that Danny will go after him. He has said over and over that Doc will be our coach next season. I doubt he will go back on that. The only way I can see Doc going is if he doesn't get the extension and quits.
