Steve Pagliuca Rumors
Chris Forsberg: Celtics release statements on the retirement of Ray Allen: “Ray was a key member of the Big Three who helped drive us to Banner 17. He is one of the best shooters and clutch players in NBA history, and we were fortunate to be able to witness his magic on the parquet. We wish him well in his retirement,” said Celtics Managing Partner Steve Pagliuca.
But a picture posted online Saturday appeared show one very special guest. In the picture, which was posted to Imgur.com, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and team co-owner Steve Pagliuca were joined by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. A league source who is in the Hamptons for Durant’s meeting with the Celtics verified that Brady is there and part of the pitch to lure Durant to Boston. “Durant’s favorite athlete,” the source said in a text message.
Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca said it is “appropriate” that the NBA review the status of the league’s 2017 All-Star Game. The setting of the basketball extravaganza, scheduled to be played in Charlotte, North Carolina, has come into question after state lawmakers there rushed to pass a bill last week that the NBA has condemned as discriminatory to the LGBT community.

The group leading the bid to bring the 2024 Olympics to Boston is shaking up its management. Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca is taking over the bid committee, replacing construction magnate John Fish. The group is trying to revive its chances of bringing the Summer Games to the city after early stumbles left the USOC second-guessing its decision to pick Boston as the American bid city. The USOC would have to submit a formal bid to the IOC in September. The host nation will be picked in 2017. Boston is expected to compete against Rome; Paris; Hamburg, Germany; and Budapest, Hungary.
