Even though the Miami Heat had eliminated the Boston Celtics from the 2011 NBA Playoffs, there are many positive things that the Celtics organization can be proud of. A team that was plagued by injuries, the Celtics still managed to be competitive throughout the regular season and into the playoffs. While it’s clear that the green and white fell short of accomplishing their goal to win a championship, we as fans understand that next year is always another season with a totally different outcome.

Two days after the elimination game, the Boston Celtics organization did not waste any time in trying to strengthen the future of the team. Celtics management and current team head coach Doc Rivers has agreed on a five-year deal worth approximately 6 million per season.

With this signing, the Boston Celtics not only solidifies the head coach position for the next couple of years, it will ensure that the players of the team will be well coached in all phases of the sport.

According to ESPN.com, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge was very excited and stated the below:

“I think Doc is the best coach in the league, so I think it’s great for us to have him around. I saw determination, hard work, persistence, and a great leader. In the face of adversity, there’s no one I’d rather have on my side than Doc.”

It’s apparent that there will need to be additional player signings in order to enhance the Celtics bench. With the head coach position already intact, Boston’s Big Four in Rondo, Pierce, Allen, and Garnett will once again, look to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
