From Steve Bulpett/Boston Herald:
As for how things will work out, talks with trusted NBA front office people have actually yielded two distinct schools of thought. It’s accepted that Al Jefferson [stats] is going to be good, and those who think Kevin Garnett has a lot of mileage think it’s going to be hard for the Celts to watch Big Al excel as KG winds down. But most of those who question the C’s do so because they believe in Gerald Green and his potential, and they believe the locals gave up an awful lot.
From Peter May/Boston Globe:
The Serbs are retooling their roster, and this year's national team featured only two NBA players, Darko Milicic and Marko Jaric. Still, the 0-3 exit was stunning, with the other two losses coming to Russia and Greece. "I said before the championship that if we finish ninth or lower, I'll go live in Iceland," said Serbia coach Zoran Slavnic, who took all the blame. "I just might have to do that now."
