I remember reading Rondo eating at McDonald's before finals game? I know I'm thinking back decades so can't remember if it is true? Is it old boy thing you been here for decades so not want to replace people? That's fine for Tommy but till this last draft and the players we see in Summer league I was flat out saying they need to all go. I shut up about that right after this draft. Maybe some people are learning how to do their jobs?
They've had a team nutritionist on staff for a long time - even back then. AFAIK they do everything they can to provide the highest quality food to players any opportunity they can - flights, locker room, practice facility, etc. They can't control the players' eating habits away from the team (outside of Sully-esque weight clauses).
Celtics have always been way ahead of the curve with things like analytics, diet, sleep, and leveraging cutting edge tech whenever possible.
Primitive western medicine I would guess is the norm in the NBA? You draft the future of your franchise and don't send couple body guards coaches to watch over him? City of Boston for many is crazy driving you don't send limousines for every player that wants ride back and forth to games? Paul Pierce got shot up at night club. Where was his security team?
I agree that a holistic perspective would be beneficial - not sure if they have someone on the staff like that.
Regarding the security concerns... idk man, that doesn't seem very realistic. It almost sounds like you are implying the Celtics should have a secret service staff monitoring their players at all times. With the amount of money involved nowadays maybe not as crazy as it sounds, but I doubt for privacy reasons that the players' union would be ok with anything close to that.
Anyways, back on topic, glad to see Robert Williams taking the right steps to improve his body, he looks great out there.
