Doc said the difference in Darko's play noticeable after news his mother was ill.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) November 20, 2012
Doc noted that once family issues come into play, it can be difficult to focus on basketball. The issues were hurting Darko's mindset.— Greg Payne (@GregPayne_ESPN) November 20, 2012
Earlier Doc said the decision was up to Darko whether to stay or go. That basically he didn't care either way. Sounding like Darko's decision will be to leave. I wouldn't necessarily pencil in Kenyon Martin on the Celtics roster just yet. It's worth noting that the Celtics never really considered Martin this Summer, so maybe they are weary of adding his "personality" to the chemistry of the team.
