Rebuilding plan gets top marks

Rebuilding plan gets top marks

CHICAGO — Larry Bird’s laugh was more than just a laugh. Within it may have been the highest praise he’s ever given former teammate Danny Ainge, whom he used to pick on like a little brother during their Celtics days.Larry runs the Indiana Pacers basketball operation now, and at the NBA draft combine he was talking about Ainge’s rebuilding efforts with the Celtics.“It’s hard to do what he’s done,” Bird said. “I think he’s done a good job. He even got a first-rounder for his coach, you know.”

Brad Stevens holds clout with rookies

CHICAGO — What Brad Stevens remembers most is that one of his last acts as head coach at Butler was to fly to Santa Ana, Calif., in an attempt to recruit Elijah Brown, the son of then-Lakers coach Mike Brown.As part of the visit he met Stanley Johnson, a wired, muscular forward who is now considered one of the best 10 players in this year’s NBA draft, via the University of Arizona.Though the Celtics would have to leap approximately 10 picks to have a chance at drafting him, they interviewed him Wednesday on the first day of the NBA draft combine.

Pierce reignites old magic for Wizards

Pierce reignites old magic for Wizards

WASHINGTON — As he moves from the practice court toward the dressing room on this off day, Paul Pierce is smiling.And it is still more than 48 hours before his Game 3-winning jump shot would light up the District night and warm the heart of a Celtics Nation that still considers him one of its own — before he would see a familiar face in the hallway after said shot and say, “Just like old times, huh?”“I’ve never seen anyone smile so much,” said one Wizards employee on this lazy Thursday afternoon.

Playoffs place Celtics out of position

Now that it’s over, how do you feel about it? Now that the temporal gratification of four more games to watch and, if you got to the Garden, two more games to hoot at LeBron James has been washed into memory, are you still happy the Celtics made the playoffs?Or do you feel as you did the day after you stayed out for a few more drinks and ended up at Kelly’s on Revere Beach? (Seemed like a good idea at the time, but, really, did you have to go with the roast beef sandwich and the scallop plate?)
