Garnett begrudgingly paid respect to another old friend he would’ve rather not seen: Gino. So often staring at the Jumbotron, disco dancing in Celtics sweats at the end of blowout wins from 2007-13, Garnett retreated to Brooklyn’s huddle and didn’t even glimpse at the long-haired man who brought him so much joy. “Listen, I was so upset,” Garnett said. “I didn’€™t even get to really, really get Gino in my system. My low moment for the night, you know what I mean? Gino is a big part of me, and I didn’€™t even get to celebrate it, but I’€™m still a huge Gino fan.” WEEI.com

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn’t one to pour compliments on opposing players. He doesn’t tend to watch other teams play basketball either, unless it is to study film. However, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker grabbed his attention with the way he moved without the ball in the NBA Finals, and now Rondo is incorporating some of Parker’s game into his already stacked arsenal of weapons. “He’s a guy that usually dominates the ball like myself, but in the Finals he got off the ball a lot and he never stopped moving,” Rondo said of Parker. “A guy at that age, not that he’s old, but I think he’s 31 (Ed. Note: Parker is 32), to be able to move with the young guys says a lot.” Basketball Insiders

Ainge’s job is not in jeopardy, nor should it be. Sources within the organization and without agree he has done what has been available to him. Yet this is not a completely comfortable time. “I feel pressure from within,” Ainge said. “I have this fear of failing. But I’m also very content. “I want desperately to put up more banners in Boston, but I know that I can’t be impatient and that I can’t listen to those that don’t really know what’s going on. I have to listen to the people I trust and trust my own instincts. I think just being patient is key.” Boston Herald
