General manager Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics organization are so pleased with the job that Doc Rivers is doing, that they’ve extended his contract for five years.

The new deal will keep him around to help rebuild the team which has one of the NBA’s oldest rosters especially with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Shaquille O’Neal in the twilight of their careers.

Rivers has coached the Celtics for seven years, winning the NBA title in 2008 and reaching the finals in 2010 before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.

The 7′-foot-1, 325-pound center in the final rounds of a fantastic career goes to Beantown hoping to add a fifth NBA title.

O’Neal signed a two-year contract worth around $3 million on Wednesday.

When this contract ends, Shaq will have played 20 NBA seasons.

O’Neal’s travels around the NBA have taken him to six teams and 15 All-Star games. He is the fifth leading scorer with 28,255 points and 14th in rebounds with 12,921 in league history.

Ray Allen has agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract to return to Boston, which means the “Big Three” of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Allen will have a chance at another NBA championship.

With Garnett under contract, Paul Pierce on the verge of a new deal for four-years and Doc Rivers also returning, Boston will keep together the core of the 2008 NBA championship team for at least two more seasons.

After the recently completed NBA Finals, it was rumored that Doc Rivers would move on, Kevin Garnett would retire and Ray Allen would leave, but the key pieces remain intact.

compiled from staff, wire and NBA news

The Los Angeles Lakers have won their 16th NBA championship after a gritty and well-earned 83-79 victory over the arch-rival Boston Celtics.

The Lakers and Phil Jackson have put themselves deeper into history in the NBA record books.

Ron Artest had 20 points and Pau Gasol added 19 points and 18 rebounds in the win.

Paul Pierce had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who just couldn’t finish the final quarter of a remarkable playoff run after a fourth-place finish in the Eastern Conference. Kevin Garnett added 17 points and Rasheed Wallace had 11.

The Lakers will hold a parade on Monday, with the team riding floats from the Staples Center down Figueroa Street to the USC campus in downtown Los Angeles. The rally in 2009 at the LA Coliseum drew 95,000 fans, but Lakers officials are in favor of a more interactive celebration.

Home teams improved to 14-3 in Game 7 of the finals. No road team has won a title in Game 7 since 1978.

With First Lady Michelle Obama was on hand watching the game from a luxury box in the Staples Center and it might’ve inspired the Lakers.

Faced with elimination for the first time during the 2010 playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers took matters into their own hands.

Pau Gasol (nba)

Kobe Bryant scored 26 points, Pau Gasol added 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Lakers held Boston to the second lowest-scoring performance in NBA finals history in an 89-67 victory in Game 6, setting up a winner-take-all Game 7 in Los Angeles.

Ron Artest added 15 points for the Lakers, who got their backs off the wall with a dazzling first half and a strong finish built around defense that suffocated Boston to 33 percent shooting. Only Utah’s 54-point performance against Chicago in 1998 was worse.

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 13 points and Kevin Garnett added 12, but their offense was mostly held to jumbled, clogged-up and stand-around-and-watch as point guard Rajon Rondo had nowhere to go with the ball.
