The third-worst season in Boston Celtics history is over, leaving Danny Ainge with plenty of problems as he continues to rebuild the team.
The school that Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens twice led to the NCAA men's basketball championship game is awarding him an honorary doctorate degree.

Nothing could stop Boston's Jared Sullinger on Friday night.
Evan Turner wasn't waiting for his coach to call timeout. Once he got the ball, he knew he had to take the last shot.
Jeff Green put the Celtics on his shoulders and scored a season-high 39 points, while the Wizards wilted with a display of selfish basketball. Boston blew a 19-point first-half lead, but Gerald Wallace made a driving layup with 2.5 seconds remaining in overtime Wednesday night for the 113-111 victory that snapped a 10-game road losing streak.
The Boston Celtics were tired from playing the night before and so undermanned that they resorted to a 10-day-contract backcourt for part of the game.
Rajon Rondo sat out the second half of a back-to-back Wednesday night for the Boston Celtics, who also expect to be without Avery Bradley for two weeks due to a sprained right ankle.
Their big early lead was gone, the Miami Heat were trailing with 3 minutes remaining and the two-time defending champions seemed very much in trouble.
Rajon Rondo moved closer to returning to the court almost a year after injuring his right knee, going through a test workout at the team's practice facility in the afternoon and then joining his Celtics teammates for warmups before Wednesday night's game against the Toronto Raptors.
"Things like this can splinter you pretty easily," said Stevens, who has five years left on his contract. "They stayed together pretty well as far as standing up for one another and being a team and not pointing blame."
"So, there's a couple of different ways to look at it: Are you going to get better in your role, or are you going to expand your role?" he said. "What I mean by that is: Are you going to get better at what you do well, or are you going to get better at some other things that make you, give you the chance instead of being the eighth guy to be the fifth? Or instead of being the fifth to be the third?"
