Back in April, Celtics coach Doc Rivers expressed a desire to do the team’s full camp overseas, not just the quick two-game trek.
“I love when we go [away for camp],” said Rivers. “I’ve always liked it, if it’s done right. And we will find that out later — we don’t know if we’re going to go over there and be our training camp, or if we’re going to do the quick trip. I’m not a big fan of the quick trip. I think when you go over there, go over there, and have camp there. I think it’s a great team-bonding trip. I’m hoping that’s what we do, but that hasn’t been clarified yet.”
At this point, I don’t care where the Celtics hold training camp. I just want Avery Bradley to participate in it, and I want him to have a slew of talented teammates.
P.S. — Let the “if Kevin Garnett returns, he’s going to be in enraged heaven playing so many Europeans” jokes begin.
