I woke up this morning full of energy. Full of enthusiasm why. Well because it's Saturday between the Celtics summer cooler day in particular excited about that I mean. What else is there but after two months of hobbling together this program. Every Saturday afternoon. Using technology. Using a resource news of this. Worldwide media company to put Max and I together whether I was in a row with the Red Sox for the Max is on vacation whether I was out of western Canada. It didn't matter we stretched the very limits of this media company Entercom to bring you -- Indian Macs together because that was the whole idea of celtics' summer cool with that. Would have granny in Macs together every Saturday but today was different today was going to be different today was. This particular Saturday this August 3 in 2013 was the day finally. After nearly half of the summer is gone more than half the summer's gone. We're gonna -- Macs in the same place so I woke this morning full of energy. Play with my son thought about the show went through my regular Saturday morning stuff yet here arrived at the studio. Matt -- in the other room pushing all the buttons and the first thing he says to me is NBC masks. Where's Max. That I haven't panacea and usually -- by now. So needless to say that's it a lot of hot air out of out of the balloon out of my energy I did to. Telephonic -- connect with Maxi is on the way he will be here shortly. But does really kind of takes open. You know right out of my sails at the start the idea that we ripples can finally be here in the studio at the same time plus. We don't know yet what Max thinks about the Jose Iglesias trade for Jake Peavy and Boston a sort of waiting for that there's always that. That way that we always hear from the regular divorces the same old voices over and over again as the way you know whatever happens to be going on but now. We don't have that match is always the tipping point he always has an opinion so what does he think about the Red Sox treaty police expert Jacque BP. But I received celtics' summer cooler and what we've done throughout the first two months of the show needless to say. I don't say we were sidetracked -- who could have known when we started than June was going to be a month that. Was gonna sort of changed. Foundations so quickly. And have this blockbuster trade happened with the nets the Doc Rivers departure board more than that really the drama surrounding it that we couldn't possibly have projected going into this. And that really had all of our attention and should that our attention actually that's that that was the primary issue and is gonna come a time and is gonna come soon. Win we're closing in on the started training camp really gonna know what this team. Looks like bored and curious about now as we finally have arrived in the middle of the natural. Order of things in the summer has finally been restored and by that and it took. This extraordinary. Week from the Red Sox to do what should it happen naturally which is to have. All of the attention really focused on them -- been the best team in the American League from the absolute star of the year. You know the Bruins -- the Stanley Cup as you that all of the court the chaos and Aaron Hernandez. The Tim Tebow thing which seemed like -- would have been the biggest thing in the world that suddenly got. Brush back because so many different things -- going -- but now the natural order of the Boston summer has finally started to come in the place and you know the Red Sox have gotten the attention that they should Abbott took a fifteen innings five hour game and another walk off the next night he nearly did it again last night it's a two trading deadline to deal took all these things defiantly and focus it where it normally -- On the third of August which is not. On the NBA so finally we determined ass in different questions and in listening to you guys which probably haven't done nearly enough follow we've been so excited to. Play all highlighted -- like Kevin Garnett and began a big name guests in the show and later on this summer. We're going to have coach Stevens on you're gonna have to any -- on Iran how long form conversations as we get closer to camp. Next week action we're gonna have the schedule which will be sort of interest in some things that she leaked out. About the schedule that we keep releasing officially weakling but we kind of know now when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett -- their first regular season appearance in Boston spoiler alert he BC Sunday afternoon January. But for now what we have is really interesting time and a little bit later we're going to be joined by Jeff Clarke he's run a lot of future so what's on your hard -- Celtics and you know we years PCs running Celtics block. For a very long times for about ten years now never them. Her like I said you may have part of your hard -- Celtics -- -- and it shows up. I don't know let's say. Our core itself to figure -- hard hard -- so I don't consider you a hard -- Celtic fan. You kind of show up when you feel like its debut their latest evidence of as. This is great because now I'm going to -- nine minutes early and -- goes to show and so that's -- rather than they would take Collins I think. There was an Collins could be all Collison. I think you know what it's gonna be all Caldwell we're gonna talk this thing for the most part. Of what they were the look almost circumvent this thing I would say. All callers this over the would like to do it now. Let's look at I I insist. This is this is your time you use you come in as you please go to he would hear the word -- we -- Beers is first time we've been in studio together now -- -- the what the big -- that's why I was so excited at the start of the show is this going to be bizarre literally our first time I think. Our first time in the same room since since game six since -- made the earth is the Celtics were. Eliminated. And yet this is going to be displayed sort of been glorious occasion you know I know it's hard and only on for two hours a week to make it on time. I'm sure there was good reason now. No other than run these in the past it's important I got here I hear a twelve and this -- because you don't have viewer winner hopelessly Euro your assets have a pass to get you. Except have a pass to get in the -- in the first of all I don't -- thought it was a year -- -- I still and yet I still it's funny how many different people on different teams. To have to call games for how many different you know advanced I have to do for discovery before I get past and what you do when this car chase that. Coach -- calling my name you'll likely get one make him a call. I'd drop the course of the years he talked about I think we don't know him with sort of covered what was. And as we get closer I think we're going to have an idea I don't think. The idea that the roster as it is going to completely be turned over again before September I think is kind of ridiculous that there's -- -- a lot of guys that. More on this team that are on this roster now that are going to be there when training camp starts -- going to be there are OpenId may play bigger roles. Than we thought but -- gonna talk to Jeff about since he has. You know he's been running the website and -- message boards of pride and warring contacted more viewed more Celtic fans of lasting years than any of us that's sort of the fun part. When Max says all colors and I kind of echo that. It's because we don't really get to hear from you some time to send -- tweets sometimes you'll see Max on the street. It downtown crossing into -- today Max. That's that's your equivalent of Twitter to meet they can reach me whenever they want and anyplace and anytime and they do and it's cool and how many people always the right now the coach -- -- and they tweeting thing and do what -- that would measure of getting in trouble absolutely. You're looking at. I gave you I -- you have got a lot of like good god meant it. Darryl and Darryl people can't do exit -- -- do. No don't you think this entire we've have a society that is completely evolved into everybody talking and nobody listening so this is eventually we're we're gonna go blue and the more people talk. They write you know on the Eagles wide receiver he didn't need Twitter he had -- he got a job was all I gave back about his brother tweak it after that. Say in the you know put put him down I give me about a thousand dollars you put him knock him out of life. Twit this select OK are tweeting the notion that we knew you were out. Larry was down cam was out with his thirty years ago the notion you guys get everything would be secondhand stories. The notion of private behavior which was which was aware of -- and probably -- it doesn't exist and which was excellent we talked about that last week we talked about. Hold tweeting thing and how that would have been. It would have been so this peaceful about Richard Lewis. You know with the win all the things which have bill with a between did with -- which pitchers which have been taken. And it it would have been but you know I understand it's a new time as the new era but my goodness that sometimes subtle long for the days. You know when you Don always used to -- the horse and you know we were shooting the -- wouldn't. Baskets. Musket -- Muslims who neglected those with president -- you use of summoned last week sort of stumbled on to something accidentally last week which probably in the big picture. Is the -- Of the Boston Celtics franchise over the next couple years we all know -- -- we have an idea an idea of vague idea of what was coming was gone over this a million times -- the Celtics aren't so much better shape. -- they were ten years ago when they entered this -- It took a lot longer than it could this time around because the Celtics a much better position. But really at the end of the day after spending hours and hours talking about pierce and Garnett and I am simply stunned if we wanted to win a point to what we wanted to we could literally do eight hours on Sugar Ray Allen's number be retired -- real thing like this double life. Nobody. He is the guy that we've seen after the brilliant games and he doesn't consistently. Then there will be no question if he's the guy who we've seen. Do with inconsistently. And have you know these run ins with the press. And he won't be that guy ESPN had a thing this week and they were talking about the point guards ranking them in the league and it's really funny is coincidence -- gonna Jeff on to Clark himself to block anyway. At this week. And yet today coincidentally he wrote a piece of compiling all these things about Rondo really asking the primary question which is. And it's the great enigmatic question about Rondo. Where does he truly -- now. Among NBA point guard if you are starting from scratch and you're picking point guards. How long is it before Rondo is on the and it's only day one bitter and therein lies the question lies the question if any chance to do whatever it ever really you know domain has that it is this just. It's just a simple thing right now -- Rondo is playing at his best he's one of the top point guards in the -- When he's not playing at his best. Simply he is one of those guys that you went to yell and scream and kick in throughout the things that TV. And -- why does he do with more consistently or as. Somebody -- get the -- to take them at the game. I understand the notion of why media naturally went to the idea off. Will Rondo in Stevens. Get along is that a prime is at a tense issue whenever I -- Mentioned this before I'll mention it again. Perhaps several -- wrong it would not be the first time but I think everybody is completely overlooking the notion. That -- Rajon Rondo in Doc Rivers and had budding relationship. From. The start and I don't think that particular relationship is going to be is difficult to improve on as others. Well I think there is he can go either way -- you know sometimes when you have to hit strong people obviously going to have a hit but incontinence. The leader was and that was Doc Rivers. We're -- see a difference out of Rondo obviously a a softer gentler Iranian. Come towards -- you know you want him to go with with a new coach. What I think about Rondo right now is primarily. In a file was to judge him and tell him what to do give him some advice. First thing -- say. Repair your relationship not with the which they had days because I think the fan base that would be are these -- -- a 75 people left him 75% of the people love Rondo. There's 25% of the people way I wonder fan behind wives. Media wise. Let's go a little bit further there maybe. I'd say. EB pursuit of the media did he Rondo inch when he. Percent of the media that love rod -- 120 can be generous well and well I'm just trying to be a little generous on that side because a Fella come -- -- Big part of that because I like it but. He has done a lot of disservice to himself. When this comes to when this come to. Dealing with the media in how he's treated them so what he has to do is take a page out of the masters book. Rivers irony -- the -- is the master. Key. If you knew how to deal with the media better than any coach -- this ever be an embossed in any helpful I mean which -- You can talk about race. You know the Red Sox you can talk about you know the patriots you can he put down the line. There's not there's not been about a coach who is who has been more media savvy. The Doc Rivers. Every down of you know you live near Boston Common you walk in there you see those old guys in the raptors with a piece of bread to feed the birds and just whatever that was Doc Rivers every night went to meet absolutely if they were commandments there was an issue would ever was he would just. He'd smile laugh -- -- c'mon guys they also also have a bat in his back package is the case once once -- awhile bird yes. If if it was needed. You want normally we would talk for a little while and then we would have just on. We have calls already do you want to calls. And hassled him because this is -- after Texas -- -- we technical on your way all year obvious -- Almost doubles the -- -- that this is just talks are you gonna -- right. So right now you -- -- -- -- studio right to the action wanna see. These people confused all the time wall -- people see it's on the street journal which one of us quickly with. -- that we approve that. I never really. Review jail -- you do not know that's not endorsed by monument possibly with a guy dressed up just in case I had 6177797937. -- I promise you -- loss of the 24 dollars and it hasn't promised we will take as many -- Never do we get sidetracked promised an accident keep me focused disease here in studio is what happens and you completely guys trying to -- sometimes -- goes -- at the phones today and start with just -- -- just in Europe. They guys violated ready to look at basketball -- here. Pay just it was a big illegal IC history. -- contest on August. Outside India it is true it. You know. Against all you talk about cart loads quickly touch -- -- bought a certainly one outsmarted. Once in the weeks by I was completely agree that -- -- -- -- -- -- he's you know. It's a part budget triple double. There and then you know we are all but might just might mean or might call it. I wanna hear more about her art wall. Averaging around sixteen point gains somewhere and well. I can't. A -- to my question you guys it is. How good is she how we eat each year. And how to eat eat Italian. -- we do. That. Thank you just I was you know what to say about -- -- at this happened a few years ago what's happened in the NBA it was several people one of them on the one I would think go. Is 21 hour earlier in his career win. A player's contract. Becomes how he is defined and when you read about Gerald Wallace and him being acquired in this trade. There was a negative -- in negative feel on it because he had that third year the contract wasn't great what happens is we become you have to be. Interest in contract should have to pay careful attention now because that's how the game -- -- but sometimes I think. You it's over done to the ball were all we're looking at is buyers contact and we forget. Would Gerald Wallace can actually do what he is one of the many reasons he's not coming off a great year but he is one of the many reasons -- I think there is too much. Talents. On this team as he is. To be -- eight when he in sixty teens at a lot of people. Or I don't wanna say hoping for that's the wrong way to reason they are yes I -- so I think some people are but that's easy thing to say no way they want on August 3 they are Macs but its -- when you go on the West Coast. Nobody wants do it's. It's no fun to watch your team get its ass kicked every night it's no fun. I want saying he'd I think if you are in right now. You're looking into the future with a crystal ball and -- say OK I'm warning you of the Celtics this year moment. I'm going to see what happens but I am hoping. That they don't finish hide so we can get when it goes. Magnificent five picks one of those guys who is point to be a franchise changer. I mean I talk to my guess Steve Burton and Steve Burton among their most Hebert Hebert hasn't bought. Will be nice is the self that you know if they if they. What words he used about. Dropping games all thinking gained it if they could take some games out like I didn't rank don't hold up a minute there. The -- this is this the real world. No it would they'd like to give a happy yes but it doesn't necessarily equate that that. If you lose a bunch of games we've seen that before we saw that when ML Carr was rhetoric pretty you know we've -- that. When Danny Ainge had to pick so it doesn't equate necessarily to you know the time I think you. Late as well you can't. And hope for the best and that's a lot times what they did a -- -- works out. I also I I completely reject the notion that he -- the right thing to do. And I think Celtics just rules certainly bear that out Paul is in LA is that right. -- -- What are okay and if so it sounds of -- -- sounds strange on the phone. I'm from Cambridge -- -- a gas. How long have you been out what -- wallet they want paper -- somewhat Rondo at the best point guard. The -- it down. If you can name a better or maybe -- Williams. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think you know what you can quit when he when he's well I think you could be right but I I would say they're wins. Probably in the east right now would be the top point -- I would -- radar Rondo. Because he's a better player. And he just really do. A better player what he says number one in. There's no such thing it tanking -- By the way he's got a professional athletes. They are right. There and take any gains. Well. That not to happen -- -- I think it held it you're gonna win more than what you thought it. The help they get a win there there there were retroactively basketball. If you get two thirds of the way you yourself to stamp parliament with the geography as your -- two thirds of the way where. Upbeat. -- -- -- -- You're two thirds of the way through this season and the Celtics are close to 500. And at that point. You you wanna see them make you want to see them make the playoffs if you wanna see them lose one of the last 25 games you get a better effect. To get a better. I mean what are we gonna get accused. Well this is this is kind of this is my point. -- -- -- -- After we built we are rebuilt right we got rid of all you know we got rid of all here. We got -- the truth we govern in the thick bright. -- we are building we understand that we don't have a decent basketball. I think you you know what I think that you don't have I think you have hit on something that the fact that there is some that there are some talent the that you don't look at this team empty. They -- you see that guy has to happen right now I would have to agree that there's some talent on this team victim play. The question will still remain what happens it in the mid point of the season where you may be 34 games on the filed hundreds. In this somebody comes to you -- says. We need to get Gerald Wallace because we want to make -- -- right what do you make bamboo and now all of -- said the U drop where you were before. I think Chris Humphries is play -- of people that Celtics like a lot more than when you think of Gerald Wallace were thinking of the contract now when he if they press operates. I think we all know or think you know you know as a casual NBA fan when you think about Chris -- But to me. These are guys well -- the use a variety of trees and any case where author running. I celtics' number cooler we promised to go right to your calls Max here -- -- in his been able to do that we're going right back to the phones next on the. And as promised or go right back to the phones are gonna talk to Jeff Clark of Celtics blog a little bit later on to get down his take on. Where people really are he probably in Iraq and more self exams through his website is almost ten years old runway and then any of us ever get the chance to do. But we were talking -- a little bit about Rondo being met the primary guys this team could be better than you think. How are you going to deal this is more interesting to use in 2005 is this new group. Your new Al Jefferson Delonte way past the -- the good old Marcus Banks days 200320042005. And the thing I'm kind of curious about does it make it better or worse where the Celtics for you where the Celtics have -- The last six years does it make you more excited to go through this two year period or. Does it make you. Say well boy it's you're still -- from having -- the very top of it that you're not is into it. And you -- in 20042005. I think it's the former pilot. When one any quick thought they place -- straight before the microphone. Ever that the -- the -- don't let anybody tell you by different teams in Falmouth Iran celtics' summer group. -- one quick question I look forward arm quickly you repaired -- -- -- part of the so that he is. Okay I remember when you played with Florida Rondo everybody focused on Rondo and -- is no. Bradley kind of went down for the open and play as well -- this season right approach on -- combat. As you like everybody just completely forgetting about how. Avery Bradley played with Rondo on the core ownership Greek -- that's our you know almost. -- I think you're here under a -- you're right about that when you think about the week run that way you play with Rondo Rondo loves playing with him. What than we did find though -- Avery Bradley -- he was exposed as a point car. Because it's of his inability to Campbell the basketball. On the pressure. In his creativity with his passes. But what we saw when he was playing the two guards. We saw a guy who played really well shot the ball well did amazing things out on the floor so. Which Avery Bradley we're gonna see is always to be interest in considering. If you play for Rondo and hey how about this. When Rondo comes back -- you're assuming right now that Rondo is coming back the first game of the season which I'm thinking not. Are -- -- there's some up projection done right now has got to run the private plane fifty games this year based on. Guys have had this injury before winning come back and how many games ago he knows he go to hit the ground running and not missing any games always go back to answer -- I don't think he's gonna. The only other question I have with that -- you know on the new coach that we have. -- when we probably coached young guys on the opposite all the more mature and everything that they -- as a coach coming out from. Doing college guys are probably have a better chance of understanding -- -- communicating to home of a better as a coach. -- Now last a while what do you think that he -- governor he'd be together communicate Ali wow he bailed on the cross examination. With the -- You gotta bring it that's a thing of people economy began the privilege of talking to Max out. That thing is if you tell me that he's going to be -- but other than Doc Rivers. Communicating. As a point out what while with the big well that happened I know you say is his strong but Doc Rivers also has. On the other side to him that you know goes maybe goes further the fact he was a point guard -- MBA. I if there is a -- on Achilles -- If people point to on the formal list of Doc Rivers it would be. He's dealing with younger players and he had success there easy ways bodily to brushed off to want to -- Bradley be great example but. But. You know. -- media would use in the -- He did what -- They'll throw some young guys know -- war to -- I'm come out the point guard duty hand with the low will point guard -- trying to figure was -- lead league in steals and. -- -- are -- our all star was not just the point out what he wasn't a young guy. He was fairly new to the lead us is it bounce around absolutely and Orlando Doc Rivers came Italy in 1990000 he won coach of the year I woke up this morning full of energy. Full of enthusiasm why. Well because it's Saturday between the Celtics summer cooler day in particular excited about that I mean. What else is there but after two months of hobbling together this program. Every Saturday afternoon. Using technology. Using a resource news of this.

Thank you just I was you know what to say about -- -- at this happened a few years ago what's happened in the NBA it was several people one of them on the one I would think go. Is 21 hour earlier in his career win. A player's contract. Becomes how he is defined and when you read about Gerald Wallace and him being acquired in this trade. There was a negative -- in negative feel on it because he had that third year the contract wasn't great what happens is we become you have to be. Interest in contract should have to pay careful attention now because that's how the game -- -- but sometimes I think. You it's over done to the ball were all we're looking at is buyers contact and we forget. Would Gerald Wallace can actually do what he is one of the many reasons he's not coming off a great year but he is one of the many reasons -- I think there is too much. Talents. On this team as he is. To be -- eight when he in sixty teens at a lot of people. Or I don't wanna say hoping for that's the wrong way to reason they are yes I -- so I think some people are but that's easy thing to say no way they want on August 3 they are Macs but its -- when you go on the West Coast. Nobody wants do it's. It's no fun to watch your team get its ass kicked every night it's no fun. I want saying he'd I think if you are in right now. You're looking into the future with a crystal ball and -- say OK I'm warning you of the Celtics this year moment. I'm going to see what happens but I am hoping. That they don't finish hide so we can get when it goes. Magnificent five picks one of those guys who is point to be a franchise changer. I mean I talk to my guess Steve Burton and Steve Burton among their most Hebert Hebert hasn't bought. Will be nice is the self that you know if they if they. What words he used about. Dropping games all thinking gained it if they could take some games out like I didn't rank don't hold up a minute there. The -- this is this the real world. No it would they'd like to give a happy yes but it doesn't necessarily equate that that. If you lose a bunch of games we've seen that before we saw that when ML Carr was rhetoric pretty you know we've -- that. When Danny Ainge had to pick so it doesn't equate necessarily to you know the time I think you. Late as well you can't. And hope for the best and that's a lot times what they did a -- -- works out. I also I I completely reject the notion that he -- the right thing to do. And I think Celtics just rules certainly bear that out Paul is in LA is that right. -- -- What are okay and if so it sounds of -- -- sounds strange on the phone. I'm from Cambridge -- -- a gas. How long have you been out what -- wallet they want paper -- somewhat Rondo at the best point guard. The -- it down. If you can name a better or maybe -- Williams. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think you know what you can quit when he when he's well I think you could be right but I I would say they're wins. Probably in the east right now would be the top point -- I would -- radar Rondo. Because he's a better player. And he just really do. A better player what he says number one in. There's no such thing it tanking -- By the way he's got a professional athletes. They are right. There and take any gains. Well. That not to happen -- -- I think it held it you're gonna win more than what you thought it. The help they get a win there there there were retroactively basketball. If you get two thirds of the way you yourself to stamp parliament with the geography as your -- two thirds of the way where. Upbeat. -- -- -- -- You're two thirds of the way through this season and the Celtics are close to 500. And at that point. You you wanna see them make you want to see them make the playoffs if you wanna see them lose one of the last 25 games you get a better effect. To get a better. I mean what are we gonna get accused. Well this is this is kind of this is my point. -- -- -- -- After we built we are rebuilt right we got rid of all you know we got rid of all here. We got -- the truth we govern in the thick bright. -- we are building we understand that we don't have a decent basketball. I think you you know what I think that you don't have I think you have hit on something that the fact that there is some that there are some talent the that you don't look at this team empty. They -- you see that guy has to happen right now I would have to agree that there's some talent on this team victim play. The question will still remain what happens it in the mid point of the season where you may be 34 games on the filed hundreds. In this somebody comes to you -- says. We need to get Gerald Wallace because we want to make -- -- right what do you make bamboo and now all of -- said the U drop where you were before. I think Chris Humphries is play -- of people that Celtics like a lot more than when you think of Gerald Wallace were thinking of the contract now when he if they press operates. I think we all know or think you know you know as a casual NBA fan when you think about Chris -- But to me. These are guys well -- the use a variety of trees and any case where author running. I celtics' number cooler we promised to go right to your calls Max here -- -- in his been able to do that we're going right back to the phones next on the. And as promised or go right back to the phones are gonna talk to Jeff Clark of Celtics blog a little bit later on to get down his take on. Where people really are he probably in Iraq and more self exams through his website is almost ten years old runway and then any of us ever get the chance to do. But we were talking -- a little bit about Rondo being met the primary guys this team could be better than you think. How are you going to deal this is more interesting to use in 2005 is this new group. Your new Al Jefferson Delonte way past the -- the good old Marcus Banks days 200320042005. And the thing I'm kind of curious about does it make it better or worse where the Celtics for you where the Celtics have -- The last six years does it make you more excited to go through this two year period or. Does it make you. Say well boy it's you're still -- from having -- the very top of it that you're not is into it. And you -- in 20042005. I think it's the former pilot. When one any quick thought they place -- straight before the microphone. Ever that the -- the -- don't let anybody tell you by different teams in Falmouth Iran celtics' summer group. -- one quick question I look forward arm quickly you repaired -- -- -- part of the so that he is. Okay I remember when you played with Florida Rondo everybody focused on Rondo and -- is no. Bradley kind of went down for the open and play as well -- this season right approach on -- combat. As you like everybody just completely forgetting about how. Avery Bradley played with Rondo on the core ownership Greek -- that's our you know almost. -- I think you're here under a -- you're right about that when you think about the week run that way you play with Rondo Rondo loves playing with him. What than we did find though -- Avery Bradley -- he was exposed as a point car. Because it's of his inability to Campbell the basketball. On the pressure. In his creativity with his passes. But what we saw when he was playing the two guards. We saw a guy who played really well shot the ball well did amazing things out on the floor so. Which Avery Bradley we're gonna see is always to be interest in considering. If you play for Rondo and hey how about this. When Rondo comes back -- you're assuming right now that Rondo is coming back the first game of the season which I'm thinking not. Are -- -- there's some up projection done right now has got to run the private plane fifty games this year based on. Guys have had this injury before winning come back and how many games ago he knows he go to hit the ground running and not missing any games always go back to answer -- I don't think he's gonna. The only other question I have with that -- you know on the new coach that we have. -- when we probably coached young guys on the opposite all the more mature and everything that they -- as a coach coming out from. Doing college guys are probably have a better chance of understanding -- -- communicating to home of a better as a coach. -- Now last a while what do you think that he -- governor he'd be together communicate Ali wow he bailed on the cross examination. With the -- You gotta bring it that's a thing of people economy began the privilege of talking to Max out. That thing is if you tell me that he's going to be -- but other than Doc Rivers. Communicating. As a point out what while with the big well that happened I know you say is his strong but Doc Rivers also has. On the other side to him that you know goes maybe goes further the fact he was a point guard -- MBA. I if there is a -- on Achilles -- If people point to on the formal list of Doc Rivers it would be. He's dealing with younger players and he had success there easy ways bodily to brushed off to want to -- Bradley be great example but. But. You know. -- media would use in the -- He did what -- They'll throw some young guys know -- war to -- I'm come out the point guard duty hand with the low will point guard -- trying to figure was -- lead league in steals and. -- -- are -- our all star was not just the point out what he wasn't a young guy. He was fairly new to the lead us is it bounce around absolutely and Orlando Doc Rivers came Italy in 1990000 he won coach of the year I woke up this morning full of energy. Full of enthusiasm why. Well because it's Saturday between the Celtics summer cooler day in particular excited about that I mean. What else is there but after two months of hobbling together this program. Every Saturday afternoon. Using technology. Using a resource news of this. Worldwide media company to put Max and I together whether I was in a row with the Red Sox for the Max is on vacation whether I was out of western Canada. It didn't matter we stretched the very limits of this media company Entercom to bring you -- Indian Macs together because that was the whole idea of celtics' summer cool with that. Would have granny in Macs together every Saturday but today was different today was going to be different today was. This particular Saturday this August 3 in 2013 was the day finally. After nearly half of the summer is gone more than half the summer's gone. We're gonna -- Macs in the same place so I woke this morning full of energy. Play with my son thought about the show went through my regular Saturday morning stuff yet here arrived at the studio. Matt -- in the other room pushing all the buttons and the first thing he says to me is NBC masks. Where's Max. That I haven't panacea and usually -- by now. So needless to say that's it a lot of hot air out of out of the balloon out of my energy I did to. Telephonic -- connect with Maxi is on the way he will be here shortly. But does really kind of takes open. You know right out of my sails at the start the idea that we ripples can finally be here in the studio at the same time plus. We don't know yet what Max thinks about the Jose Iglesias trade for Jake Peavy and Boston a sort of waiting for that there's always that. That way that we always hear from the regular divorces the same old voices over and over again as the way you know whatever happens to be going on but now. We don't have that match is always the tipping point he always has an opinion so what does he think about the Red Sox treaty police expert Jacque BP. But I received celtics' summer cooler and what we've done throughout the first two months of the show needless to say. I don't say we were sidetracked -- who could have known when we started than June was going to be a month that. Was gonna sort of changed. Foundations so quickly. And have this blockbuster trade happened with the nets the Doc Rivers departure board more than that really the drama surrounding it that we couldn't possibly have projected going into this. And that really had all of our attention and should that our attention actually that's that that was the primary issue and is gonna come a time and is gonna come soon. Win we're closing in on the started training camp really gonna know what this team. Looks like bored and curious about now as we finally have arrived in the middle of the natural. Order of things in the summer has finally been restored and by that and it took. This extraordinary. Week from the Red Sox to do what should it happen naturally which is to have. All of the attention really focused on them -- been the best team in the American League from the absolute star of the year. You know the Bruins -- the Stanley Cup as you that all of the court the chaos and Aaron Hernandez. The Tim Tebow thing which seemed like -- would have been the biggest thing in the world that suddenly got. Brush back because so many different things -- going -- but now the natural order of the Boston summer has finally started to come in the place and you know the Red Sox have gotten the attention that they should Abbott took a fifteen innings five hour game and another walk off the next night he nearly did it again last night it's a two trading deadline to deal took all these things defiantly and focus it where it normally -- On the third of August which is not. On the NBA so finally we determined ass in different questions and in listening to you guys which probably haven't done nearly enough follow we've been so excited to. Play all highlighted -- like Kevin Garnett and began a big name guests in the show and later on this summer. We're going to have coach Stevens on you're gonna have to any -- on Iran how long form conversations as we get closer to camp. Next week action we're gonna have the schedule which will be sort of interest in some things that she leaked out. About the schedule that we keep releasing officially weakling but we kind of know now when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett -- their first regular season appearance in Boston spoiler alert he BC Sunday afternoon January. But for now what we have is really interesting time and a little bit later we're going to be joined by Jeff Clarke he's run a lot of future so what's on your hard -- Celtics and you know we years PCs running Celtics block. For a very long times for about ten years now never them. Her like I said you may have part of your hard -- Celtics -- -- and it shows up. I don't know let's say. Our core itself to figure -- hard hard -- so I don't consider you a hard -- Celtic fan. You kind of show up when you feel like its debut their latest evidence of as. This is great because now I'm going to -- nine minutes early and -- goes to show and so that's -- rather than they would take Collins I think. There was an Collins could be all Collison. I think you know what it's gonna be all Caldwell we're gonna talk this thing for the most part. Of what they were the look almost circumvent this thing I would say. All callers this over the would like to do it now. Let's look at I I insist. This is this is your time you use you come in as you please go to he would hear the word -- we -- Beers is first time we've been in studio together now -- -- the what the big -- that's why I was so excited at the start of the show is this going to be bizarre literally our first time I think. Our first time in the same room since since game six since -- made the earth is the Celtics were. Eliminated. And yet this is going to be displayed sort of been glorious occasion you know I know it's hard and only on for two hours a week to make it on time. I'm sure there was good reason now. No other than run these in the past it's important I got here I hear a twelve and this -- because you don't have viewer winner hopelessly Euro your assets have a pass to get you. Except have a pass to get in the -- in the first of all I don't -- thought it was a year -- -- I still and yet I still it's funny how many different people on different teams. To have to call games for how many different you know advanced I have to do for discovery before I get past and what you do when this car chase that. Coach -- calling my name you'll likely get one make him a call. I'd drop the course of the years he talked about I think we don't know him with sort of covered what was. And as we get closer I think we're going to have an idea I don't think. The idea that the roster as it is going to completely be turned over again before September I think is kind of ridiculous that there's -- -- a lot of guys that. More on this team that are on this roster now that are going to be there when training camp starts -- going to be there are OpenId may play bigger roles. Than we thought but -- gonna talk to Jeff about since he has. You know he's been running the website and -- message boards of pride and warring contacted more viewed more Celtic fans of lasting years than any of us that's sort of the fun part. When Max says all colors and I kind of echo that. It's because we don't really get to hear from you some time to send -- tweets sometimes you'll see Max on the street. It downtown crossing into -- today Max. That's that's your equivalent of Twitter to meet they can reach me whenever they want and anyplace and anytime and they do and it's cool and how many people always the right now the coach -- -- and they tweeting thing and do what -- that would measure of getting in trouble absolutely. You're looking at. I gave you I -- you have got a lot of like good god meant it. Darryl and Darryl people can't do exit -- -- do. No don't you think this entire we've have a society that is completely evolved into everybody talking and nobody listening so this is eventually we're we're gonna go blue and the more people talk. They write you know on the Eagles wide receiver he didn't need Twitter he had -- he got a job was all I gave back about his brother tweak it after that. Say in the you know put put him down I give me about a thousand dollars you put him knock him out of life. Twit this select OK are tweeting the notion that we knew you were out.

I mean I talk to my guess Steve Burton and Steve Burton among their most Hebert Hebert hasn't bought. Will be nice is the self that you know if they if they. What words he used about. Dropping games all thinking gained it if they could take some games out like I didn't rank don't hold up a minute there. The -- this is this the real world. No it would they'd like to give a happy yes but it doesn't necessarily equate that that. If you lose a bunch of games we've seen that before we saw that when ML Carr was rhetoric pretty you know we've -- that. When Danny Ainge had to pick so it doesn't equate necessarily to you know the time I think you. Late as well you can't. And hope for the best and that's a lot times what they did a -- -- works out. I also I I completely reject the notion that he -- the right thing to do. And I think Celtics just rules certainly bear that out Paul is in LA is that right. -- -- What are okay and if so it sounds of -- -- sounds strange on the phone. I'm from Cambridge -- -- a gas. How long have you been out what -- wallet they want paper -- somewhat Rondo at the best point guard. The -- it down. If you can name a better or maybe -- Williams. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think you know what you can quit when he when he's well I think you could be right but I I would say they're wins. Probably in the east right now would be the top point -- I would -- radar Rondo. Because he's a better player. And he just really do. A better player what he says number one in. There's no such thing it tanking -- By the way he's got a professional athletes. They are right. There and take any gains. Well. That not to happen -- -- I think it held it you're gonna win more than what you thought it. The help they get a win there there there were retroactively basketball. If you get two thirds of the way you yourself to stamp parliament with the geography as your -- two thirds of the way where. Upbeat. -- -- -- -- You're two thirds of the way through this season and the Celtics are close to 500. And at that point. You you wanna see them make you want to see them make the playoffs if you wanna see them lose one of the last 25 games you get a better effect. To get a better. I mean what are we gonna get accused. Well this is this is kind of this is my point. -- -- -- -- After we built we are rebuilt right we got rid of all you know we got rid of all here. We got -- the truth we govern in the thick bright. -- we are building we understand that we don't have a decent basketball. I think you you know what I think that you don't have I think you have hit on something that the fact that there is some that there are some talent the that you don't look at this team empty. They -- you see that guy has to happen right now I would have to agree that there's some talent on this team victim play. The question will still remain what happens it in the mid point of the season where you may be 34 games on the filed hundreds. In this somebody comes to you -- says. We need to get Gerald Wallace because we want to make -- -- right what do you make bamboo and now all of -- said the U drop where you were before. I think Chris Humphries is play -- of people that Celtics like a lot more than when you think of Gerald Wallace were thinking of the contract now when he if they press operates. I think we all know or think you know you know as a casual NBA fan when you think about Chris -- But to me. These are guys well -- the use a variety of trees and any case where author running. I celtics' number cooler we promised to go right to your calls Max here -- -- in his been able to do that we're going right back to the phones next on the. And as promised or go right back to the phones are gonna talk to Jeff Clark of Celtics blog a little bit later on to get down his take on. Where people really are he probably in Iraq and more self exams through his website is almost ten years old runway and then any of us ever get the chance to do. But we were talking -- a little bit about Rondo being met the primary guys this team could be better than you think. How are you going to deal this is more interesting to use in 2005 is this new group. Your new Al Jefferson Delonte way past the -- the good old Marcus Banks days 200320042005. And the thing I'm kind of curious about does it make it better or worse where the Celtics for you where the Celtics have -- The last six years does it make you more excited to go through this two year period or. Does it make you. Say well boy it's you're still -- from having -- the very top of it that you're not is into it. And you -- in 20042005. I think it's the former pilot. When one any quick thought they place -- straight before the microphone. Ever that the -- the -- don't let anybody tell you by different teams in Falmouth Iran celtics' summer group. -- one quick question I look forward arm quickly you repaired -- -- -- part of the so that he is. Okay I remember when you played with Florida Rondo everybody focused on Rondo and -- is no. Bradley kind of went down for the open and play as well -- this season right approach on -- combat. As you like everybody just completely forgetting about how. Avery Bradley played with Rondo on the core ownership Greek -- that's our you know almost. -- I think you're here under a -- you're right about that when you think about the week run that way you play with Rondo Rondo loves playing with him. What than we did find though -- Avery Bradley -- he was exposed as a point to me is NBC masks. Where's Max. That I haven't panacea and usually -- by now. So needless to say that's it a lot of hot air out of out of the balloon out of my energy I did to. Telephonic -- connect with Maxi is on the way he will be here shortly. But does really kind of takes open. You know right out of my sails at the start the idea that we ripples can finally be here in the studio at the same time plus. We don't know yet what Max thinks about the Jose Iglesias trade for Jake Peavy and Boston a sort of waiting for that there's always that. That way that we always hear from the regular divorces the same old voices over and over again as the way you know whatever happens to be going on but now. We don't have that match is always the tipping point he always has an opinion so what does he think about the Red Sox treaty police expert Jacque BP. But I received celtics' summer cooler and what we've done throughout the first two months of the show needless to say. I don't say we were sidetracked -- who could have known when we started than June was going to be a month that. Was gonna sort of changed. Foundations so quickly. And have this blockbuster trade happened with the nets the Doc Rivers departure board more than that really the drama surrounding it that we couldn't possibly have projected going into this. And that really had all of our attention and should that our attention actually that's that that was the primary issue and is gonna come a time and is gonna come soon. Win we're closing in on the started training camp really gonna know what this team. Looks like bored and curious about now as we finally have arrived in the middle of the natural. Order of things in the summer has finally been restored and by that and it took. This extraordinary. Week from the Red Sox to do what should it happen naturally which is to have. All of the attention really focused on them -- been the best team in the American League from the absolute star of the year. You know the Bruins -- the Stanley Cup as you that all of the court the chaos and Aaron Hernandez. The Tim Tebow thing which seemed like -- would have been the biggest thing in the world that suddenly got. Brush back because so many different things -- going -- but now the natural order of the Boston summer has finally started to come in the place and you know the Red Sox have gotten the attention that they should Abbott took a fifteen innings five hour game and another walk off the next night he nearly did it again last night it's a two trading deadline to deal took all these things defiantly and focus it where it normally -- On the third of August which is not. On the NBA so finally we determined ass in different questions and in listening to you guys which probably haven't done nearly enough follow we've been so excited to. Play all highlighted -- like Kevin Garnett and began a big name guests in the show and later on this summer. We're going to have coach Stevens on you're gonna have to any -- on Iran how long form conversations as we get closer to camp. Next week action we're gonna have the schedule which will be sort of interest in some things that she leaked out. About the schedule that we keep releasing officially weakling but we kind of know now when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett -- their first regular season appearance in Boston spoiler alert he BC Sunday afternoon January. But for now what we have is really interesting time and a little bit later we're going to be joined by Jeff Clarke he's run a lot of future so what's on your hard -- Celtics and you know we years PCs running Celtics block. For a very long times for about ten years now never them. Her like I said you may have part of your hard -- Celtics -- -- and it shows up. I don't know let's say. Our core itself to figure -- hard hard -- so I don't consider you a hard -- Celtic fan. You kind of show up when you feel like its debut their latest evidence of as. This is great because now I'm going to -- nine minutes early and -- goes to show and so that's -- rather than they would take Collins I think. There was an Collins could be all Collison. I think you know what it's gonna be all Caldwell we're gonna talk this thing for the most part. Of what they were the look almost circumvent this thing I would say. All callers this over the would like to do it now. Let's look at I I insist. This is this is your time you use you come in as you please go to he would hear the word -- we -- Beers is first time we've been in studio together now -- -- the what the big -- that's why I was so excited at the start of the show is this going to be bizarre literally our first time I think. Our first time in the same room since since game six since -- made the earth is the Celtics were. Eliminated. And yet this is going to be displayed sort of been glorious occasion you know I know it's hard and only on for two hours a week to make it on time. I'm sure there was good reason now. No other than run these in the past it's important I got here I hear a twelve and this -- because you don't have viewer winner hopelessly Euro your assets have a pass to get you. Except have a pass to get in the -- in the first of all I don't -- thought it was a year -- -- I still and yet I still it's funny how many different people on different teams. To have to call games for how many different you know advanced I have to do for discovery before I get past and what you do when this car chase that. Coach -- calling my name you'll likely get one make him a call. I'd drop the course of the years he talked about I think we don't know him with sort of covered what was. And as we get closer I think we're going to have an idea I don't think. The idea that the roster as it is going to completely be turned over again before September I think is kind of ridiculous that there's -- -- a lot of guys that. More on this team that are on this roster now that are going to be there when training camp starts -- going to be there are OpenId may play bigger roles. Than we thought but -- gonna talk to Jeff about since he has. You know he's been running the website and -- message boards of pride and warring contacted more viewed more Celtic fans of lasting years than any of us that's sort of the fun part. When Max says all colors and I kind of echo that. It's because we don't really get to hear from you some time to send -- tweets sometimes you'll see Max on the street. It downtown crossing into -- today Max. That's that's your equivalent of Twitter to meet they can reach me whenever they want and anyplace and anytime and they do and it's cool and how many people always the right now the coach -- -- and they tweeting thing and do what -- that would measure of getting in trouble absolutely. You're looking at. I gave you I -- you have got a lot of like good god meant it. Darryl and Darryl people can't do exit -- -- do. No don't you think this entire we've have a society that is completely evolved into everybody talking and nobody listening so this is eventually we're we're gonna go blue and the more people talk. They write you know on the Eagles wide receiver he didn't need Twitter he had -- he got a job was all I gave back about his brother tweak it after that. Say in the you know put put him down I give me about a thousand dollars you put him knock him out of life. Twit this select OK are tweeting the notion that we knew you were out. Larry was down cam was out with his thirty years ago the notion you guys get everything would be secondhand stories. The notion of private behavior which was which was aware of -- and probably -- it doesn't exist and which was excellent we talked about that last week we talked about. Hold tweeting thing and how that would have been. It would have been so this peaceful about Richard Lewis. You know with the win all the things which have bill with a between did with -- which pitchers which have been taken. And it it would have been but you know I understand it's a new time as the new era but my goodness that sometimes subtle long for the days. You know when you Don always used to -- the horse and you know we were shooting the -- wouldn't. Baskets. Musket -- Muslims who neglected those with president -- you use of summoned last week sort of stumbled on to something accidentally last week which probably in the big picture. Is the -- Of the Boston Celtics franchise over the next couple years we all know -- -- we have an idea an idea of vague idea of what was coming was gone over this a million times -- the Celtics aren't so much better shape. -- they were ten years ago when they entered this -- It took a lot longer than it could this time around because the Celtics a much better position. But really at the end of the day after spending hours and hours talking about pierce and Garnett and I am simply stunned if we wanted to win a point to what we wanted to we could literally do eight hours on Sugar Ray Allen's number be retired -- real thing like this double life. Nobody. He is the guy that we've seen after the brilliant games and he doesn't consistently. Then there will be no question if he's the guy who we've seen. Do with inconsistently. And have you know these run ins with the press. And he won't be that guy ESPN had a thing this week and they were talking about the point guards ranking them in the league and it's really funny is coincidence -- gonna Jeff on to Clark himself to block anyway. At this week. And yet today coincidentally he wrote a piece of compiling all these things about Rondo really asking the primary question which is. And it's the great enigmatic question about Rondo. Where does he truly -- now. Among NBA point guard if you are starting from scratch and you're picking point guards. How long is it before Rondo is on the and it's only day one bitter and therein lies the question lies the question if any chance to do whatever it ever really you know domain has that it is this just. It's just a simple thing right now -- Rondo is playing at his best he's one of the top point guards in the -- When he's not playing at his best. Simply he is one of those guys that you went to yell and scream and kick in throughout the things that TV. And -- why does he do with more consistently or as. Somebody -- get the -- to take them at the game. I understand the notion of why media naturally went to the idea off. Will Rondo in Stevens. Get along is that a prime is at a tense issue whenever I -- Mentioned this before I'll mention it again. Perhaps several -- wrong it would not be the first time but I think everybody is completely overlooking the notion. That -- Rajon Rondo in Doc Rivers and had budding relationship. From. The start and I don't think that particular relationship is going to be is difficult to improve on as others. Well I think there is he can go either way -- you know sometimes when you have to hit strong people obviously going to have a hit but incontinence. The leader was and that was Doc Rivers. We're -- see a difference out of Rondo obviously a a softer gentler Iranian. Come towards -- you know you want him to go with with a new coach. What I think about Rondo right now is primarily. In a file was to judge him and tell him what to do give him some advice. First thing -- say. Repair your relationship not with the which they had days because I think the fan base that would be are these -- -- a 75 people left him 75% of the people love Rondo. There's 25% of the people way I wonder fan behind wives. Media wise. Let's go a little bit further there maybe. I'd say. EB pursuit of the media did he Rondo inch when he. Percent of the media that love rod -- 120 can be generous well and well I'm just trying to be a little generous on that side because a Fella come -- -- Big part of that because I like it but. He has done a lot of disservice to himself. When this comes to when this come to. Dealing with the media in how he's treated them so what he has to do is take a page out of the masters book. Rivers irony -- the -- is the master. Key. If you knew how to deal with the media better than any coach -- this ever be an embossed in any helpful I mean which -- You can talk about race. You know the Red Sox you can talk about you know the patriots you can he put down the line. There's not there's not been about a coach who is who has been more media savvy. The Doc Rivers. Every down of you know you live near Boston Common you walk in there you see those old guys in the raptors with a piece of bread to feed the birds and just whatever that was Doc Rivers every night went to meet absolutely if they were commandments there was an issue would ever was he would just. He'd smile laugh -- -- c'mon guys they also also have a bat in his back package is the case once once -- awhile bird yes. If if it was needed. You want normally we would talk for a little while and then we would have just on. We have calls already do you want to calls. And hassled him because this is -- after Texas -- -- we technical on your way all year obvious -- Almost doubles the -- -- that this is just talks are you gonna -- right. So right now you -- -- -- -- studio right to the action wanna see. These people confused all the time wall -- people see it's on the street journal which one of us quickly with. -- that we approve that. I never really. Review jail -- you do not know that's not endorsed by monument possibly with a guy dressed up just in case I had 6177797937. -- I promise you -- loss of the 24 dollars and it hasn't promised we will take as many -- Never do we get sidetracked promised an accident keep me focused disease here in studio is what happens and you completely guys trying to -- sometimes -- goes -- at the phones today and start with just -- -- just in Europe. They guys violated ready to look at basketball -- here. Pay just it was a big illegal IC history. -- contest on August. Outside India it is true it. You know. Against all you talk about cart loads quickly touch -- -- bought a certainly one outsmarted. Once in the weeks by I was completely agree that -- -- -- -- -- -- he's you know. It's a part budget triple double. There and then you know we are all but might just might mean or might call it. I wanna hear more about her art wall. Averaging around sixteen point gains somewhere and well. I can't. A -- to my question you guys it is. How good is she how we eat each year. And how to eat eat Italian. -- we do. That. Thank you just I was you know what to say about -- -- at this happened a few years ago what's happened in the NBA it was several people one of them on the one I would think go. Is 21 hour earlier in his career win. A player's contract. Becomes how he is defined and when you read about Gerald Wallace and him being acquired in this trade. There was a negative -- in negative feel on it because he had that third year the contract wasn't great what happens is we become you have to be. Interest in contract should have to pay careful attention now because that's how the game -- -- but sometimes I think. You it's over done to the ball were all we're looking at is buyers contact and we forget. Would Gerald Wallace can actually do what he is one of the many reasons he's not coming off a great year but he is one of the many reasons -- I think there is too much. Talents. On this team as he is. To be -- eight when he in sixty teens at a lot of people. Or I don't wanna say hoping for that's the wrong way to reason they are yes I -- so I think some people are but that's easy thing to say no way they want on August 3 they are Macs but its -- when you go on the West Coast. Nobody wants do it's. It's no fun to watch your team get its ass kicked every night it's no fun. I want saying he'd I think if you are in right now. You're looking into the future with a crystal ball and -- say OK I'm warning you of the Celtics this year moment. I'm going to see what happens but I am hoping. That they don't finish hide so we can get when it goes. Magnificent five picks one of those guys who is point to be a franchise changer. I mean I talk to my guess Steve Burton and Steve Burton among their most Hebert Hebert hasn't bought. Will be nice is the self that you know if they if they. What words he used about.
