WALTHAM, Mass.– There are a lot of NBA stat gurus who picked the Boston Celtics’ offense apart last season. They said the C’s were inefficient, that they played at too slow of a slow pace and that they couldn’t muster up enough points to keep up in this young, athletic league.
Don’t expect that to be the sentiment this season. At least not if Doc Rivers has his way.
Rivers has been preaching for years that he wants his team to get out and run. He wants them to score in transition, logging as many easy buckets as possible.
But just because he wanted that doesn’t mean he got it. As Rivers alluded to this afternoon, he just hadn’t been able to get his former teams to buy into the mindset of scoring on the break.
Many Celtics teammates and coaches are gushing about the skills Courtney Lee brings to the team.

“We haven’t had guys that really wanted to run,” Rivers said.
Do you notice how he used the past tense? That immediately changed with the next sentence that happily rolled off of his tongue.
Rivers continued,“I think we have more of those guys now.”
That’s a fact. Courtney Lee is now in the fold. Jeff Green is back in the fold. Jason Terry has arrived, too, and we all know that he loves to score as many points as possible – it’s his modus operandi.
That trio of players will drastically alter the landscape of Boston’s offense this season, both in transition and in the half court.
Scoring on the break might be the most important area in which the Celtics need to improve this season. Easy buckets take stress off of the offense and they allow the defense to set up in the half court, something that’s vital while playing against teams like the Heat and Thunder.
Kevin Garnett used part of the second day of training camp to explain to his new teammates that easy buckets simply weren’t of the norm last season, and that such a trend must change this time around.“[Garnett] was like,‘We didn’t get a lot of easy points, easy buckets. We had to work for everything,’“Lee said of Garnett’s mini speech.“So that’s one thing I’m going to try to do on the offensive end, is to get out and run.”
Lee will run alongside Rajon Rondo to start games off, and then Terry and Green will step in to carry much of that load, too. The possibilities are just about endless, and the C’s are already having grand visions of what they’ll be able to accomplish while sprinting from one end of the court to the other.

“This training camp we’ve connected on a couple of fast-break points, so that’s going to be huge for us,” Lee said.“If we can get 10-12 points a game on transition, that’s huge.”
In addition to scoring on the break, Boston also plans to have a much more diverse offense in the half court. Last season, nearly everything went through Rondo. There’s a reason why he led the league in assists per game by a wide margin. He initiated everything and did a phenomenal job finding teammates for open shots.
The Celtics will continue to lean on Rondo’s playmaking this season, but there will be much less weight on his shoulders to dominate in the same fashion he did a season ago. As Terry explained, he and Lee will be there to help in that department.
“Now you have guys like myself and Courtney who can also handle the ball in pick-and-roll situations and can make it a lot easier on these guys,” said the former Sixth Man of the Year.“Usually Rondo has to get everybody involved and get everybody shots, whereas now he penetrates the lane, kicks it to us, now we can also create. It won’t just be a catch-and-shoot situation.”
In other words, Boston will now run an offense that features multiple actions. When you have the ball in playmakers’ hands on the second and third actions of possessions, good things are bound to happen.
With all of this in mind, it’s clear that the Celtics’ offense will be much more diverse than it has been in the recent past. It’s not because of a shift in philosophy, but more because of a shift in personnel. And it should be a shift for the better.

Celtics Lakers Tie-Breaker for the Finals?
What's good High. How is everything? Yeah can't wait until the season even though espn and etc are going to be talking about the Miami Heat lol. The sad thing is that they got better. As for another Lakers Celtics Finals, it will be tough even though both teams have improved in the offseason. Lakers have to deal with Thunder, Spurs, Memphis and Nuggets. Celtics have to deal with the Heat Stroke, Bulls(only if Rose is back to form), Knicks, Sixers. We shall see it unfold and I Oct.30 can't get here quick enough.

What's up Show. How is everything going man? Season is almost here and hey said that Howard wants to maybe play in the som preseason games. I still say that he doesn't need to rush because him being at 100% is a huge key. He said he is ahead of schdule. We shall see how tha goes. I can't wait to see this Laker team in the court because in mt opinion they can win a title with this time. Nash vs the younger pgs always scares the hell out of me, but at least he can put pressure on them too. I think that Chris Duhon can do well and Mike Brown thought he had a little pressure last year? He better be prepared and I really hope he is ready because I was one of the fans that didn't believe him.

Hey Dell Oh man can't wait for your picks. Well once again the GM as always is looking for big things or least playoff bound. New additions in Lowry, Landry Fields, and our new sensation from Europe 7ftr( Jonas) should help. In fact at a press conference he said to reporters, bring it Howard. A deal will probably go down for Calderon as we experience the same nonsense of 2 point guards. Without a vet other than has been Magloire , we don't stand a chance. Other than that I like the rebuilding process and anxious to see how things go.

Lol I can't see Spike Lee trading in his Pricks hat for a Nut Hat. Even though him and Jay Z are cool I really believe Spike would die for the Knicks. Brooklyn Nets will be no different from the New Jersey Shore Nets which is bad. Joe Johnson has already gotton off to a good start with his commmet lol.

Big Baby looks like he can let some really fouls ones out. It's sad that someone like him has a ring, but at least he will no be heard from as much since the Magic are rebuilding.
