SI.com: Think you will ever go back to Boston? Pierce: "Definitely. Maybe as a player, maybe as a coach, maybe upstairs [in the front office]. I follow what they are doing. I went back to Boston twice this summer, went to their practice facility. I keep up with them." Sports Illustrated

Back in Boston for the beginning of the NBA season, Austin sees Owen on the court before the game and runs over to give him a high-five. There are a dozen boys and girls with Marfan there, many of whom had never met another kid like them before this trip. The Celtics have partnered with the Marfan Foundation this season, and tonight they're honoring Austin with their "Heroes Among Us" award. At a break in the second quarter, Austin walks onto the court. He hears the sweet sound of his name and a more thunderous roar than when Rajon Rondo was introduced in the starting lineup. A crowd of 18,000 is on its feet. Sports Illustrated

There is one player who makes sense in LA next season: Rajon Rondo. Several rival executives believe the Lakers will make a strong run at Rondo next summer, and it’s easy to see why. Rondo is young (28), plays a critical position and shares the same win-at-all-bleeping-cost attitude as Bryant. The Celtics are rebuilding and have a young playmaker in Marcus Smart, which may limit their desire to hand Rondo max money. Sports Illustrated

The key, Rose said, is that looming decision with Rondo. “I think it’s going to be crucial what happens with Rondo,” Rose said. “They have to turn him into a player [through trade] and/or a few players that are going to be multi All-Stars. Once you’re able to do that and you’re a winner again then people always want to try to play for a winner.” Boston Globe


How bright is Boston's history? Well, the first 19 players in the list won NBA titles with the team.
