M.L. Carr said he is not nervous or
superstitious about representing the Celtics at the NBA draft lottery
tomorrow. "What happens in out of my hands. It is all done in the back
room before you've ever seen the results on television. They do the
actual drawing backstage, put the results in the envelopes, and then
take them out of the envelopes on TV.
Myself and the guys from the other
teams sitting up there on TV won't know what happened until they open
the envelopes. The only thing I can do is pray that we get the No. 1
pick, and I'll be doing plenty of that." . . . BU hockey coach Jack
Parker on when he watched Pitino
coach the Terrier basketball team years ago: "I used to go watch his
practices. Over the years I've watched our basketball teams practice
from time to time just to see how the different coaches work, to see if
there is anything they do, that can help me as a coach. Pitino
always impressed me with the way the practices were organized and the
intensity of the way he coached and ran those practices. Every player on
those teams knew he was putting as much into every practice as they
not only set new standards for what an NBA head coach is paid, but
assistant coaches will benefit as well. Word has it that his top
assistant, Jim O'Brien, will be paid in the $ 450,000 range, which was
more than some Celtic head coaches were making just a few years back.
His namesake supposedly is also upping the price tag for assistants in
the college ranks. Word has it that former Boston College coach Jim
O'Brien got big deals for his assistants when he brought them with him
to Ohio State.
