Doc still plans on taking a break

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.
