"Doc is always unsure [about his future]," said Ainge. "Coaching is very, very draining. Every year with Doc, he’s had to go home and sort of recharge and ask himself that question, ‘Is this something that I’m passionate about and want to continue doing?’ I understand that. And we sorta give him time to unwind and relax, and after a couple of 92s on the golf course, he usually comes back."
Doc will be back. Until this team hits full on rebuild mode,and if they do. Lets not forget about the talent we have here. When Rondo returns this team is still a playoff team, but it's Ainge's job to find out who,or which player out there can take this team over the hump with Rondo. Is that player on this roster?
Ainge then speaks about Kevin's future.
"I do the same thing as I do with Doc: I give him some time away and I’ll touch base with KG probably sometime next week," said Ainge. "He’s put so much into the game, he invests as much as any player I’ve ever seen. And he just needs time to chill and contemplate his life and then we’ll talk at some future time. But I do anticipate that KG will play. Just like I did last year, I feel the same this year. I don’t know for sure, but we’ll know more in the next couple weeks."
KG has a lot in the tank,and it looks like he has more in the tank then Pierce. Pierce is in a tough spot,and I'll have more on my thoughts about him in the morning. In the meantime KG should be back here. I know he wants to be loyal to Paul. But I think he needs to look at Doc Rivers,and Rondo. How much do you care about those guys as well. Is Pierce enough for KG to walk away from this team if the Celtics move on without Pierce?
