Doc Rivers promises to take mental approach with Darko, Rondo – Boston Herald
Doc talks about getting Darko to calm down and play, instead of being overshadowed by his “prestige” on being a #2 draft pick in the past. If this works, Doc is nothing short of a miracle worker.
He also talks about Rondo needing to improve on being the on-court coach, so that he can “sit on the sideline and maybe have a cup of coffee or something during the game” – Doc is funny as always.
In focus: Struggles in opener – ESPN Boston
Greg Payne writes about a few planet-sized weaknesses the Celtics displayed in the preseason opener. I would rather these weaknesses be exposed now, than for them to erupt later in the season. Forewarned is forearmed.
That’s all for today folks, have fun and I’ll see you soon.
