I sat down with @Brad Stevens this morning as he reflected on his first season in the NBA: bostonglobe.com/sports/2014/04…

Rich Levine

Can only imagine the pics they're texting Xander after that last bomb.

Gary Washburn

Uh oh, Jordan coming to get some now #BadBoys

Gary Washburn

Was there a more enjoyable player to watch than a focused Dennis Rodman? #theworm

Steve Bulpett

Celts-Washington at Garden had 3,300 more in attendance than Red Sox at Chicago Wednesday night. #perspective

Gary Washburn

My favorite Isiah line ever, quoting the Ohio Players #pistons

Gary Washburn

Tough to watch the last stand of the #showtime #lakers

Gary Washburn

Dantley got a right to be pissed, remember he got dealt to Utah the year before the #lakers won their first title.

Gary Washburn

Who was better? Dantley or Aguirre? I say Dantley. Look as his number in Utah. They were sick.

Gary Washburn

Loving Dantley's candor here, he's still pissed about the trade

Gary Washburn

Can confirm @Chris Haynes report that Joel Anthony will NOT opt out of his contract and will return to #celtics at $3.8 million salary

Kyle Draper

Watching ESPN #30for30 : Bad Boys. Riveting. The 80's the golden era of the #NBA in my opinion.

Paul Flannery

That dude's mullet was the 80s

Steve Bulpett

Honored again to be invited to presentation of Boston Marathon wreaths from Greece to BAA. Thinking of my ancestors.

Kyle Draper

SMH MT @Chris Sheridan: I voted LeBron James 2nd Team All-NBA because ballot was C-F-F-G-G. Durant & Griffin were Nos. 1 & 2 on my MVP ballot

Jeff Green

Watching this #30for30 on the Detroit Pistons #BadBoys on #espn

Baxter Holmes

Checking out @bostoniapublic on opening night. http://t.co/u4OyKPSi5r

Jared Weiss

If for some crazy reason you haven't bought tickets to see @azizansari at The Wilbur #Boston, he's added a record 10th show. Sale code WT16.

Ben Rohrbach

Considering his love of numbers, surprised Rondo didn't use 18,624 here. Still cool tho. "You can't cheat the fans." http://t.co/6rDpQxWZ0K

Dan Duggan

Nova is the question. If he's the starter is he automatically a captain? Awkward if he's the starter and not a capt after being one jr year

Dan Duggan

Captain vote should be interesting this summer. Seems like Milewski, Burton and Hamilton, despite being a junior, are near locks.

Dan Duggan

Kyle Flood says this team has a bigger leadership group than in the past: nj.com/rutgersfootbal…

Dan Duggan

Dave Milewski says the difference in talent from team-to-team is closer than people think. So what makes teams win? nj.com/rutgersfootbal…

Kyle Draper

Now that the #Celtics season is over I want to thank those fans who offered encouraging words & stuck w us throughout the yr. #CelticsTalk

Kyle Draper

C's fans trying to forget that one MT @Kevin Ding: The best playoff game I've ever seen live: Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. What was yours?

Ben Rohrbach

And if C's win flip, they get 43.6% shot at top-4 pick. If they lose, only 33.4%. Also, can they send David Blaine? youtube.com/watch?v=Ff0rS7…

Ben Rohrbach

Friday's coin flip bigger than I thought. A C's win gets 98.4% shot at top-6 pick. C's loss means 8.5% chance at 7 or 8. #tailsneverfails

Ben Rohrbach

Be sure to keep this lottery breakdown, courtesy of assistant Celtics GM Mike Zarren, bookmarked until May 20: nba.com/celtics/news/s…

Kevin Eastman

Being a leader/captain is about seeing things going on that others don't; hearing things that others miss; taking daily pulse/read of team!

Kevin Eastman

Difficulties r part of all of our live's. Difficulty must be challenged and not just accepted. It won't be easy but it has to be attacked!

Kristina Leahy

How bad does it have to be when Ducks say Getzlaf needed "numerous" stitches to fix a deep facial laceration than an actual number?

Dan Duggan

That quote is awesome on many levels. But the greater message of that article is how much more intense SEC schools are in recruiting.

Dan Duggan

5-star recruit: "The Big Ten is more about academics and the SEC is more about football." insider.espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecrui…

Ben Rohrbach

Per Jackie Mac, Kings trade talk was serious, but when SAC "illegally" inquired re: Rondo's interest in re-signing, he said, "Hell no."

Dan Duggan

Details on Rutgers' Big Ten celebration, which includes fireworks at HPSS on July 1: nj.com/rutgersfootbal…

Ben Rohrbach

Jackie Mac expects Dante Exum to go fourth. Adds Celtics, like others, covet the Australian guard. He's an unknown to media, but not to C's.

Chris Johnson

Off to Orlando...Wheels up ✈️✈️

Ben Rohrbach

Loving this @DaleHolleyWEEI & Jackie Mac basketball talk. Great stuff from Ainge, as always, and an unprecedented rational Rondo discussion!

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge continues to publicly make his sales pitch on Jeff Green. "He's becoming a more valuable asset."

Chris Forsberg

our annual after-the-season Take 'em or Trash 'em roster rundown (espn.go.com/boston/polls?i…); Deluxe edition in blog (espn.go.com/blog/boston/ce…)

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge on Bradley's injury history: "I think that is somewhat of an issue." Didn't deny offering 4 years, $24 million prior to the season.

Baxter Holmes

Remember: Ainge might "see" Rondo on next year's team, but it doesn't mean that will happen. Anything could happen this summer.

Jessica Camerato

Steve Clifford and Dave Joerger named the NBA Eastern and Western Conference Coaches of the Month.

Ben Rohrbach

Does Ainge see Rondo on the 2014-15 Celtics? "Yeah, I've said that like a thousand times." Admitted Rondo has declined a contract extension.

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge on 2014 NBA draft: "I just don't think there's that one player that's going to turn a franchise from a lottery team into a top team."

Ben Rohrbach

Jackie Mac and Danny Ainge on @WEEI right now. Must-listen radio.

Kelly Olynyk

Thanks to all the fans that were with us the whole way, through all the ups and downs they never left… instagram.com/p/m5k9_uAcj2/

Scott Souza

In @metrowestdaily blog, read how #Celtics veteran Brandon Bass was a surprise, perfect choice for Red Auerbach Award shar.es/Th8EA

Dan Duggan

Flood on the position he'll focus on in scrimmage: "I think certainly it always starts at the quarterback position." bit.ly/1itxGzM

Dan Duggan

Quick preview of Saturday's scrimmage, which will put the quarterbacks in the spotlight: bit.ly/1itxGzM

Jared Weiss

With Parker entering the draft, this essentially guarantees Randle or Exum (or even Smart or Vonleh) at #Celtics pick. Big news.

Ben Rohrbach

Why do I get the feeling Ainge would take Parker with the No. 1 pick and these other GMs would take Wiggins? Just a hunch.

Baxter Holmes

In terms of merchandise sales, @Rajon Rondo had the 13th most popular jersey this season & the @Marc D'Amico were the 6th most popular team.

Rich Levine

And just to brighten up your Thursday: Corey Maggette retired with $89M in career earnings.

Chris Forsberg

Rondo 13th most popular jersey on NBA's end-of-season list; Celtics 6th most popular team merchandise. http://t.co/tbtAwe5Vh3

Rich Levine

Jabari P. is Coach K's fifth one-and-done along with Maggette, Deng, Austin Rivers and Kyrie. Somewhat mixed results so far.

Mark Murphy

Jabari Parker's announcement great development for Celts. He'll push a lot of talent down the draft board. Probably the most NBA ready, too.

Steve Bulpett

SI has Jabari Parker entering the NBA draft. Even if they don't get a chance to pick him, this is huge news for the Celtics.

Ben Rohrbach

I spent a day w/ him when he won Gatorade National Player of the Year as a HS junior. Humblest kid I've covered in boys' hoops.

Dan Duggan

Flood says the new NCAA rule on unlimited meal plans "makes a lot of sense." Thinks it will help with nutrition.

Ben Rohrbach

Happy for Jabari. Hope he ends up in Boston, if only so folks around here can see just how special of a kid he really is.

Dan Duggan

S&C coaches are allowed more time with players than other coaches based on NCAA rules. Flood called Cole "a major asset."

Baxter Holmes

Jabari Parker has officially declared for the NBA draft: sportsillustrated.cnn.com/college-basket…

Dan Duggan

Flood praised strength and conditioning coach Jeremy Cole. Called that position one of the "more critical hires" for a coach.

Dan Duggan

Saturday's scrimmage is going to be big for the QBs. Flood says it's an opportunity for separation in the competition.

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens wants to catch a Bruins playoff game. Doesn't know if he'll stay up for every Red Sox game, though.

Dan Duggan

Kyle Flood called today an "excellent practice." Happy with the energy and emotion. Former player Dino Mangiero spoke to the team.

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "I need to get better in a lot of ways. It was a transition moving into the NBA. It's a much different game."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "I really want to be good. I want to do my job as well as I can. You look at 25-57, and it's hard to swallow."

Baxter Holmes

The Globe held a Pulitzer bash last night at @Bar500A and the cocktail menu was apparently awesome: instagram.com/p/m5KRLou1B0/

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "The guy that stands out is the guy we gave the Auerbach Award to yesterday, and that is Brandon Bass."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "If we ever had issues b/w coach/player & player/player, those were few & far between." Calls locker room "a positive environment."

Ben Rohrbach

Brad Stevens: "I'm disappointed in our overall record and how we performed collectively."

Pitch for the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel: Same exact cast/script, just w/all the actors 20+ years older. Would be real creepy, but you'd watch.

Jessica Camerato

Kemba Walker: “When he cares so much about you off the court, you want to do winning things for him on the court." bit.ly/1ncVYRS

Rich Levine

My guess on the Celtics first pick: If they can get Jabari, they take Jabari. Otherwise they trade it away.

Ben Rohrbach

Great stuff from @Trags on Stevens looking back (greenstreet.weei.com/sports/boston/…) & Rondo looking ahead (greenstreet.weei.com/sports/boston/…).

Jared Weiss

Thanks to the Garden Report #Celtics PG Show fans that stuck with @Evans Clinchy @Jimmy_Toscano & I thru a crazy year! celticsblog.com/2014/4/17/5623…

Reminder that a bunch of RU players will visit the Jets today: Coleman, Merrells, Deering, Jones, Marsh, Carrezola, Pratt.

Rich Levine

Jeff Green led the Celtics in scoring this year w/16.9 ppg. Lowest avg for C's leading scoring since Dee Brown averaged 15.5 in '94.

Ben Rohrbach

As @SportStation_ noted, Ainge's Thunder-Clippers matchup would take place in the conference semis.

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge on possibility of bringing Paul Pierce back: "At the right price, right circumstance."

Baxter Holmes

I'll have more stories in the coming days, but for now, thanks to anyone who followed along during my 1st full season covering the @Celtics.

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge has Heat/Pacers and Clippers/Thunder in the conference semifinals. Thinks Heat are still the best team. Can't disagree.

Marc D'Amico

Ainge on 'fireworks': "I'm looking to make something happen. But I have to make sure that we do a good deal, not just to make a splash."

Baxter Holmes

My final game story bit.ly/1gLkk1s & notebook bit.ly/1gLkrdc from the Celtics' 2013-14 season, which ended last night.

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge: "I'm looking to make something happen. … I have to make sure we're making a good deal & not just making a deal to blow off fireworks"

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge: "I owe Rondo. Rondo has been a greater player for us. … I owe it to him to be honest." Added. "You bet I do consult with him."

Ben Rohrbach

Ainge could see Hump back on C's next season, but not at $12M. Although, "He has the chance to hit the jackpot again on a sign-and-trade."

Marc D'Amico

Ainge on a dealing for an All-Star: "That's possible. We'll certainly look into that. So much depends upon where we end up in the draft."

Ben Rohrbach

Is any player un-tradable? Ainge: "No."
