Mike Gorman hasn't been working on his tan just yet after the Celtics season ended recently. Toucher and Rich on 98.5 interviewed him about his post season thoughts, and recent Celtics rumors regarding next season.
When Gorman thinks back to what he'll remember from this year the second half of the season comes to mind. The way they played in the second half of the season resembled a team that could have gone all the way. Even though the Celtics didn't "beat the heat" as everyone had hoped, people still are playing the "what if" game.
Gorman thinks the outcome of the Eastern Conference Championships would have been different if Avery Bradley had played. He admits he has a biased opinion, but thinks they would have won in six with Bradley. Age did catch up with some of the guys after a hectic and physical season. Some younger legs out there would have made a difference.
The Celtics can't make many moves until they figure out what's going on with Kevin Garnett. Gorman thinks KG will come back to play for Doc Rivers. It will all come down to money in the end, he believes a one year deal would be the best option. There is talk about KG not wanting to play as center, but Doc can be very convincing. Plus, there aren't many other true centers out there to pick from.
Roy Hibbert might be one who is only going to get better in Gorman's opinon. But, there doesn't seem to be much of a reason for Indiana to let him go.
Gorman also doesn't think there are much truth behind the rumors that Paul Pierce is being shopped around at all. Most likely, Pierce will play his whole career as a Celtic.
