It was 75 degrees when we showed up in Boston last night. This morning when I woke up–Rain. At least it’s still fairly warm outside (64 according to the lady on the other end of my wake up call). Luckily we play basketball indoors so the weather won’t have much bearing on the days itinerary (but it could put a serious damper on my plans to catch the Red Sox/Rays matchup tonight).
Phil Jackson and the rest of the coaching staff weren’t letting the elements interfere with their usual breakfast meeting. When I went down to grab some breakfast they were seated together talking hoops like normal.
The Celtics normally practice at their training facility in Waltham (about 25 minutes west of downtown), but will workout at the TD Banknorth Garden today for media purposes. The Lakers follow them with a media session before they kick off practice at 1:30pm Eastern.
