“If you like the way Al Jefferson [stats] has played, then I think you also have to look at who coached him,” Grousbeck said, referring to Rivers. “Doc’s coaching is consistently of a very high effort. He’s out there coaching on every play. I think he also represents our organization very well. He has done a great job of being out there on our behalf.”
This really upsets me. It isn't Doc who is responsible for the improvement in Al Jefferson. Clifford Ray is the one he should be crediting. Ray is the one who is working with Jefferson. Doc is responsible for our big team improvement. Oh, that's right, there hasn't been any. The team has steadily gone down hill since Doc took over. And yes, Doc is out there coaching on every play, and he represents the organization well. He is a good guy, but he isn't a good coach. In my opinion, this whole article is just a lot of spin.
The Green Room presents a post mortem on the season including the most depressing moments from the season. The deaths of Red and DJ, losint Tony Allen the way we did, losing the season opener in a game and season dedicated to Red, all the tanking talk and injuries, and the 18 game losing streak are all definitely downers.
SouthCoast Today has yet another Celtics report card. I think they graded some of our young players little harshly but over all, pretty fair. I think I need to send them some koolaid.
Nothin' But Net has part 1 of their roster analysis. They share their thoughts on Pierce, Jefferson, Wally, West and Gomes.
The news is obviously going to slow down during periods of the off season. Right now, we are in the lull before the lottery. After the lottery there will be more draft talk and then summer league and roster changes but as of right now, not much to discuss other than looking back on the past season which can be depressing. But, maybe we should be happy because we don't need news like Telfair just made. Quiet may be a good thing.
