Whats Next For The Boston Celtics And Their Fans?

The Boston Celtics lost Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers and have traded Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets. What is left for the Celtics to do now? Rajon Rondo is all they have left of their past glory. Will Rondo stay with the Celtics or seek a trade? I just do not see Rondo staying with the Boston Celtics in this rebuilding phase. I look for him to ask to be traded as he is not a player who likes to lose and right now that is what the Celtics will be doing this coming year.

I look for the Boston Celtics to try and make Rondo happy, but in the end it could be a lost cause for them. Look for the Celtics probably be forced to trade him and rebuild from the bottom up. Rondo does have value, but that will not be until he is healthy. Only time will tell how this works out for the Boston Celtics and Rondo. If Boston builds a winner quickly these trades will be embraced quickly. If it's an epic failure Danny Ainge will hear about it that's for sure.

What Is Next For Kevin Garnett And Paul Pierce After Doc's Depature

Now that Doc Rivers has a new team to coach where does this leave Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett and Pierce are two players that has really improved under Doc Rivers and there days as Celtics players could be numbered. Pierce has a big contract and trade talks with other teams could see Pierce leaving the Celtics. Kevin Garnett would love to play for Doc Rivers again, so that is a possibility as well.

If I was a betting man I would say before the season starts we could see both players on the move. Rumors have Pierce could become a Cavalier as they have offered two picks for him. Garnett could meet up with Doc in Los Angeles as well. Either way look for the Boston Celtics to look a lot different this coming Season. It's a sad way for the Big three to go, but that is where we could be headed that's for sure.

Should The Celtics Consider Trading Rajon Rondo Now?

It seems by the various reports Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers had an altercation in a team meeting. Of course we do not know that to be fact, but various reports have indicated that is what happen. Ray Allen and Rondo also were not on the best of terms as well. I guess Rondo just does not get along well with others at least on the Celtics it seems. Doc Rivers probably will not be back as a Celtics coach unless Boston makes some moves. Would Boston consider moving Rajon Rondo?

Now if I was the Boston Celtics I would definetly consider moving him right now. Yes, he is one of the better point guards, but the Celtics have proven they can win without him. maybe it is time to cut the ties with Rondo and see what you can get for him on the open market. If I was Boston I think right now is the perfect time to try and move him. Many times you wait to long to move someone I hope the Celtics do not make this mistake. It's time to move Rondo and go from there as the Celtics need a good coach and losing Doc Rivers is something I don't think they want to do.

Doc Rivers Is He Worth All The Attention He's Getting

One of the interesting stories this playoff season has been Doc Rivers and the pursuit of him by other NBA teams. It seems Rivers is not sure if he wants to coach the Boston Celtics anymore, or if it is time to move on or just retire. The Boston Celtics probably would love to have him back, but since they did enter some trade talk with the Clippers it seems highly unlikely he will return to the Celtics bench this coming season.

Why is Doc Rivers being pursued by other teams? It's really pretty simple he is a winner and knows how to get the most from his players. He gets his players to buy into what he is doing and that is rare in the NBA these days. When your dealing with a lot of egos it seems Doc Rivers knows how to push all the right buttons. Finding an NBA coach that can do that is very hard and Rivers will be sought after in the off-season, but who gets him could be any one's guess. The one thing we do know whoever does, will get one hell of a coach that's for sure.

Doc Rivers Takes Blame For Ray Allen's Departure From Boston

The departure of Ray Allen from the Boston Celtics to the Miami Heat has been a bitter pill for Celtics fans to swallow, but they will move on. Doc Rivers takes most of the blame for Ray Allen moving to the Miami Heat. The one thing about Doc Rivers he does what is best for the team and Ray Allen really did not like it. Toss in his rocky relationship with Rajon Rondo and Allen is now a Miami Heat player.

Even though Doc Rivers takes most of the blame for Allen leaving the Celtics it is not all his fault. As players get older they do not like to defer or come off the bench. This is something that bugged Ray Allen and he bolted to the Heat. Most likely though he will be coming off the bench for the Heat so his situation has really not changed much at all. It will be interesting to see how Ray Allen handles it as he will get fewer touches than in Boston. Rajon Rondo probably is happy Allen is gone, but only time will tell if Allen made a good move.
