For his part, it never really ended. Bradley said he took a week off after the season, but was right back in the gym. He left the country for a vacation last week, but worked out each day. Bradley joked with team trainers that he's in the best shape of any player on the Celtics and is 100 percent healthy despite injuries that have nagged him during his career. "I still work out three times per day. I’m in amazing shape right now," said Bradley. "I joke around with the trainers -- me and the trainers, we worked out in Vegas together at the player meeting to pick our new leader -- I told them I’m in the greatest shape on the team right now. So we were joking about that. I feel good right now, my body feels good and I feel stronger." ESPN.com

Q: Is it important to you now that you've been through it to talk to other guys if they go down with that same injury? Nerlens Noel: Oh yeah, yeah. Definitely, definitely. With all the support and love, certain guys, especially Rajon Rondo -- he was definitely the biggest helper through this whole process, he actually gave me his phone number and told me I could hit him up whenever about it. Being from Boston, watching him growing up, and he went through it and he came back as strong as possible, actually before me, so it gave me a lot of confidence, having his good faith. CBSSports.com

Keyon Dooling: What I loved about (Doc Rivers) was that he didn’t sweat the small things. If you didn’t want to practice in a shirt, you didn’t have to. If you wanted to listen to your music on the plane, you could go ahead. He wasn’t tripping off dress code or anything that didn’t impact the big picture. But when you had a job to do in the weight room, on the court, in a professional setting? It was, “Do your f---ing job!” That’s because he had only one team rule – and it only had one word in it: Respect. Respect your trainer’s time. You have a massage set up, be there on time. Respect the equipment guys’ job – don’t leave your stuff all raggedy, put it in the bin. The message was that people worked hard for us – and we should do our part to help them do what they did for us. Doc held you accountable. HoopsHype

Keyon Dooling: He also gave the best pregame speeches I had ever heard in my life. It wasn’t the standard pep talk by any means. No, Doc would pull directly from his life experience and be honest and direct – as well as show his vulnerability. Many of his stories were about his father, who was a police officer, and the lessons he learned from him. He would take you on an emotional roller coaster, from the bottom to the top and back down again, and I would see these legendary basketball greats getting all pumped up. As for me, I would just try to contain myself; in the middle of one of his talks, I just wanted to yell, “Let me out there now! Please let me out there now! You don’t have to say anything else, Doc, just let me out there now!” HoopsHype

Keyon Dooling: So here I was, on a mission to connect with this supposedly scary dude everyone’s talking about. I didn’t really have a choice, they even moved his locker next to mine to get the relationship going. Result? A great friendship! I found him to be the total opposite of scary. I think the timing had a lot to with it – he was at a place in life where he was open to my way of helping. There were a lot of misconceptions about him in the media and even in the league, and I wanted people to appreciate Ray (that’s what I call him) for who he truly was. HoopsHype

That's when KG and Paul Pierce tried to get Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge to bring me in because they thought I could replace Tony Allen, who signed with the Grizzlies the summer before. The Celtics got with my agent, Mark Bartelstein, but that didn't work out. To this day, Paul Pierce always tells Danny, "I told you DeMarre was going to be good." Bleacher Report
