Walter McCarty has been a fan favorite in Boston for a long time now. It's been nice seeing him teach the young guys on the bench. I'm sure he's built a bond with Rondo, with them both being from Kentucky. His days as an assistant coach with the Celtics could be numbered.
The list of candidates for the head basketball coach’s position at Boston College includes Walter McCarty, the Herald has learned.
And the Celtics assistant coach acknowledged yesterday he is intent on exploring the possibility.
“I’m very interested,” said McCarty, who spent 71⁄2 years as a player for the Celts. “I want to be highly considered. I love the city. I have great ties in the city. I have a great foundation here, especially with recruiting.
“If you look at Louisville’s 2013 national championship team, four of those five starters were my guys. So I’m very confident in my ability to coach and lead a program. I think that I’m ready.”
After retiring from active duty, McCarty spent three years as an assistant under Rick Pitino in Louisville and moved back to the NBA for one year as an assistant for the Pacers.
I would be nice to see Walter to stay, bu honestly I wish him luck with the BC job.
Old friend Paul Pierce saved the day for the Nets. But it wasn't enough as the Nets lost 109-104 to the Pelicans in overtime.
Oh, and yeah, the 76ers are looking at history very soon. Will they ever win another game this season? Philadelphia will face Houston on Thursday with being a loss shy of tying the NBA record for consecutive losses set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-11. They sit at 25 and counting, and the Celtics will see them twice before the season ends. Please don't be the first victims Boston.
