Boston Celtics Daily Dish: April 24, 2013

Boston Celtics fans, things are getting interesting!

For the first time EVER, five first-round NBA playoff playoff series are tied 1-1.  That’s incredible.  Sure, the Miami Heat are having little problem with the Charlotte Bobcats right now, and Washington has surprised everyone by taking a 2-0 lead on the Chicago Bulls, but the NBA has reached a point where any time can win, and the people who win the most from the scenario is us fans!

Great stuff.

Speaking of great stuff . . . .

Here are last night’s scores, recaps and video highlights.  [NBA.com]  Essentially reading/viewing for those of us who can’t catch every game.

There’s a lot more to coaching than just calling plays and making smart in-game adjustments.  Just ask Frank Vogel, whose inability to manage Indiana’s locker room this season could force the Pacers’ front office to re-assess whether he is the right man for the job.

Or is Larry Bird more to blame for the mess that has gone on in Indiana, as this video suggest?  [Sports Illustrated]  Blasphemy!

Here’s an interesting piece: a rookie’s perspective on his NBA postseason debut – which game against the two-time defending champs, no less.  [Sports Illustrated]  Good stuff.

Kobe Bryant.  LeBron James.  LaMarcus Aldridge?  Read your Daily Dime.  [ESPN]

This offseason is going to be huge for a Boston Celtics team that is in rebuilding mode.  Here’s one look at what the Celtics’ agenda should be during the summer.  [NESN]

Jared Sullinger made it into the NBA Playoffs coverage on TNT – just not in the way he wanted!  [Masslive.com]  Funny stuff.

Finally, now that he’s something of a home-town hero, is it possible that UCONN guard Shabazz Napier could wind up playing for the team he grew up idolizing, the Boston Celtics?  [Masslive.com]  Interesting . . . .

Enjoy!
