Video: C's locker room reaction
By Chris Forsberg
MIAMI -- A collection of locker room reaction about Boston's Game 5 loss to Miami as well as talk about what the future holds for Glen Davis, Jeff Green, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo.
Doc Rivers on his future: "I'm leaning heavily to coming back. I haven't made that decision. But I can tell you that I probably will. I've kind of come to that over the last couple of weeks. I'm a Celtic and I love our guys. I want to win again here. I do. And I'm competitive as hell. I have a competitive group, and so we'll see. But I can tell you that's where I'm at today. Tomorrow I may change my mind, but that's where I'm at today."
Paul Pierce on keeping core intact and potential changes: "I really believe [the Celtics can win with this core]. For the most part, between me, Ray [Allen], and Kevin [Garnett], we stayed pretty relatively healthy this year. Ray is probably the most healthy, in-shape guy in the league, so I have no doubts that he'll come back strong for another three or four years, and KG, he got through another year. I think this is a healthy year for him for the most part, and I've been for the most part healthy, so I definitely believe we can come back and make another run at this... Well, I know it's going to look different. I know that for a fact. Every year things are going to be done in the summer and when you have so many guys with this being the last year of their contract, you know it happens every year. So I know there's going to be a few changes. I don't know what, but we'll have to wait and see."
Jeff Green on his future: "[Boston is] a great place. You look at the guys they've got on this roster, it's a dream to play with guys that I looked up to growing up, and just to [have] had this opportunity was fun, and hopefully I'll have it again... There's a lot going on outside of myself, as far as the lockout, so we'll just wait until it's time... I haven't talked to [Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge] about it at all. My priority was finishing [the season strong]."
