Trade talks with the Clippers may have been deaded, but of course that doesn't mean things will be going back to the normal in Boston. The idea that Doc Rivers would even want to leave the Celtics has piqued the public's interest. As if that wasn't intriguing enough, Sheridan Hoops is reporting that Rivers' "intense dislike" for Rajon Rondo is his motivation for considering leaving. It even almost led to a physical altercation:

A source close to the Celtics tells Chris Sheridan of that Rondo droopped [sic] an F-bomb on Rivers in the locker room during a team meeting, and Rivers went after Rondo and tried to fight him before the fracas was broken up.

Wow, Doc. Would you really want to get in a fight with Wolverine? Anyway, the tension between the two should have people talking about something other than the Celtics' old age. Unfortunately for Boston, that's not a good look for the organization.
