Boston Celtics Daily Dish: May 9, 2014

Hey hey hey – it’s Friday!

That’s right, Boston Celtics fans: another week is almost in the books.  I sincerely hope you’re not ending your week, camped out in front of the TV watching the NFL draft – why would you do that to yourself? I watched ten minutes before the first pick last night and wanted to slap John Gruden in the face no less than 16 times.

Ugh.  Save your team – read the results, but spare yourself from having to listen to those games yammer uselessly on you TV.

Onto the links!

I predicted that every conference semifinal series would go six games.  About that . . . .  Check out last night’s scores, recaps and video highlights to see why I’m not feeling that pick any more.  [NBA.com]

Man, those San Antonio Spurs are a savvy, veteran team.  First, they rattle the young Portland Trailblazers with a blowout win in game one of their Western Conference semifinals series – now this?  [NBA.com]  Coincidence?  Ha ha!

Your Daily Dime today explains how the Miami Heat used some classic television to get themselves ready for game two against the Nets.  [ESPN]  No, it wasn’t Gunsmoke!

The Los Angeles Clippers may have won their first round series against the Golden State Warriors, but controversy continues to swirl around this team.  Hear Doc Rivers’ thoughts on how hard it would be to accept Shelly Sterling retaining ownership of the team.  [Sports Illustrated]

Here’s The Sporting News’ mock draft for you to consider.  [Sporting News]  It doesn’t have the Boston Celtics picking first, btw.

Speaking of those Boston Celtics, here’s a look at one man’s assessment of the team’s biggest draft needs.  [Bleacher Report]  Like that was hard to figure out!

And finally, here’s a look at two ex-Celtics who haven’t spoken in over two years.  [Masslive.com]  Leaving Boston for Miami will do that.
