I wonder if that was a condition to the Hayward signing? I recall his trainer following the C's, are they going to start hiring people Hayward is familiar with?

C's need a new staff...one that can get them on the LeBron juice....this natural training has not been good enough.  8)
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.

With the new training center they are building, I think they are orienting themselves more with modern sport science methods.

Maybe Doo and Lacerte were more old school and the C's decided to just go in a different direction.

Some info on the new facility:

I think its past due. I haven't been happy with our training and conditioning staff since the KG era. It is way past time to update their medical and training practices.

This.

By all accounts they were well liked in the locker room, but I'm not entirely their methods were the best.

I hate to agree with you guys but you're probably correct.  I wonder if the Celtics can hire the docs and training staff from the Suns.

Good riddance.

Why? I would love to hear your rationale on disliking Ed Lacerte.

I think Doo is going to stay and might take over. I'm pretty sure he's well liked.

Doo stepped down the other day. They are going in a different direction with the medical/training staff.

Interesting- I thought he'd be involved going forward. I know that he is involved with NB, and thought there would be an integration with the new Celtics facility.

I wonder if this different direction will be associated with GE and their sports analytics package that the Celtics are interested in.

I'm curious, are these decisions on the trainers and medical staff personnel decisions that Ainge makes, or ownership?

I don't think his team have handled injuries right. IT's could possible been prevented when it first occurred in MArch. As long as the bone isn't misshapen, it's just a matter of rest. He should have been shut down for a few weeks, yes it would have cost us first place, but he'd be working out right now.

There are new ways of doing things. Pitchers are starting to use more heat than ice on shoulders. Blood heals muscles. Cold prevents blood flow, heat increases it. So we need more people who are up to date in the latest training techniques.

I think you're assuming that Lacerte/Doo are not on the cutting edge. I don't think that's fair. I'm not related to these guys, or even know them.

I do know that Lacerte was well respected around the league. Your assumption that he's out of touch might be that he's older now, which isn't a valid reason. There are plenty of older people that stay savvy with modern medical advancements.

Doo is younger and has his own practice. There's nothing there that tells me that he's not up-to-date with medical research/advancement.

My guess is that ownership/management got excited by something else and wanted to try it. This is different than saying the other guys weren't good enough.

I actually thought they handled the Celtics well during their championship run and the years after. It was known around the league that the Celtics were resting for the playoffs, similar to how the Cavs are (intelligently) treating Lebron.
