Ray after loss: 'There were a lot of tears'

LOS ANGELES -- Several Celtics players had tears in their eyes and were overcome with emotion in the moments immediately following their Game 7 loss to the Lakers, 83-79, at Staples Center Thursday night. 

 

"This is probably one of the hardest feelings I've felt in my lifetime." Ray Allen said. "There were a lot tears, just a lot of tears." 

 

Kevin Garnett and Tony Allen were among the Celtics to show tears and raw emotion following the loss, which denied the Celtics their 18th title. Adding to the emotion was the immediate uncertainty of Ray Allen and Rasheed Wallace and coach Doc Rivers to return for next season.

Kobe owns up: 'I wanted it so bad'

LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant kept the press at bay during the playoffs, constantly downplaying his role in the Lakers-Celtics rivalry and what it means for his legacy. "I was just lying to you guys," Bryant said. "I just wanted it so bad. I wanted it so, so bad." Bryant also praised the Celtics saying, "The physicality of their team, how smart they are, extremely well-coached and guys made big shots. It was tough. They weren't going to beat themselves. We had to beat them." Bryant also took a shot at former teammate Shaquille O'Neal, saying when asked about what the title meant to him individually, "Just got one more than Shaq. You can take that to the bank. You know how I am. I don't forget anything." For more, see the Celtics team page by clicking here.

Rivers on future: 'Tough decision'

LOS ANGELES -- As he has maintained throughout the playoffs, Doc Rivers will take some time to make a decision about his future. "It's just a tough decision," he said outside the Celtics locker room. "I'm just going to get away." He won't be far away from the Celtics, however. Their summer league team will play in Orlando July 5-9 where Rivers has a home.

Doc: Rasheed thinking about retiring

Speaking after the Celtics' 83-79, Game 7 loss to the Lakers Thursday night, Celts coach Doc Rivers suggested that forward Rasheed Wallace may be contemplating retirement. "You know, I don't know if Rasheed will ever play again," Rivers said of the 35-year-old. "You know, he's one of them. I think he took that out on the floor with him. I think he is thinking about retiring, and I thought you could see that in his play. He was dying out there. When he got the cramps and the strains, he was just trying to figure out a way of staying on the floor.

 

"We had to keep subbing him for one minute and two minutes, and I thought the reason we got up early was because of Rasheed Wallace. We got it low in the post, he started scoring, and I thought what happened was late in the game he got tired and had the injuries and we couldn't go down anymore, and I think that had a huge impact on how we were playing. We had to go away from the...
