Above Doc talks about the conflict of wanting to spend time with his family but also not wanting to waste the opportunity to coach players like KG, Ray, Rondo and Pierce.

Doc's contract expires at the end of this season and, just like last year, it's up in the air as to whether he'll come back for another season. A silver lining to a potential NBA lockout is that it will give Doc his vacation without him having to leave the Celtics, though obviously no one's rooting for a work stoppage.

    Its really tough when you have to make decisions like this specially when it comes between ure family and ure job..Doc is a great coach probably one of the best ever the C's encountered and greater in the NBA..even doh deep down i want him to spend more time with the team cause the playoffs is really near am all about family first...DONT GO DOC!!!!

    I hope Doc doesn't go. Their is only ONE COACH IN THE NBA that can replace Doc - but he coaches the Bulls now.

    But i mean, if he does go - its not THE END for him and the C's. I'm sure he will still be apart of their lives & spend time w/them (specifically the Big 4 - & Perk) after he is done coaching.

    Another thing - whenever Doc does go, he deserves to have a -number/jersey/name/what ever- hanging in the rafters at the Garden.

    Sounds like there's nothing to really add to what he's been saying. If I had to bet money on it, I would say that he's going to be coaching at least one more year with this group after this year. After next year, who knows what the team will look like, then he will probably seriously consider taking a break from coaching.

    It's funny though, I was one of the people that when we hired Doc I was saying to myself "What? What has he done?" But he's really turned me into a believer. I firmly believe that he is one of the 5 best coaches in the league, although I do think that Thibideau's role with the Celtics in 2008 is hugely overlooked. Still though, with all the media vultures in Boston, he handles the media so well and obviously the players love him.
