If anyone can get his best out of him, it would be Doc.

I don't see anything wrong with this. This is a good piece to start rebuilding through the draft.

Rondo, Bradley, Rivers is a good guard rotation.

They will most likely have to give up bradley to get high enough...so Rondo Rivers Pierce Garnett Fab Melo?? They need a big man. Id rather have Rondo Bradley Pierce Garnett Drummond. But my heart wants rivers haha just because of the hype and father son combo would be quite interesting

There is conflict of interest written all over this. This is going to blow up at some point. If he's not working out Doc may be accused of giving him too much time, and if he gets traded... well, who knows how Doc will take it. And if Doc gets fired not telling what his son will do if he's still on the team. If I was Boston this would be the last player I'd want to draft.

I'd rather keep Bradley and stay put in the draft. I'm all for moving up, but only if we can keep both Rondo and Bradley (which doesn't seem all that likely unless somebody actually wants Pierce). I wouldn't mind seeing Rivers here, but I don't think he is worth what it would take to trade up for him especially since there are such interesting prospects that might fall to the Celtics at 21 and 22.

If anyone can get his best out of him, it would be Doc.

If anyone can coddle and enable his unchecked ego, it would be Doc.

I know... I was starting to feel like I was the only one who saw this conflict of interest. This is crazy.

A father coaching his son? That has bad idea written all over it.

Austin Rivers is a great fit for Boston. Coach K was fine with his choice to leave Duke. There is some room for growth, but Boston needs youth. With Rondo and Rivers in the back court that is a fun combo to watch. Ray Allen may leave so this is a great move if Boston can pull it off.

If Ray leaves and this happens, would the starting sg spot be Bradley's to lose since he has seniority?

I predicted this in another thread. If it happens, expect Pierce to be involved. Probably Pierce to the Blazers for the #11 pick where the C's take Rivers. If Rivers is off the board by then, there will be no trade for him after the fact.
