WALTHAM  Р Before this season ever starts, nearly everyone in a Celtics uniform wants to make one thing clear. This is NOT 2008.

On Friday, the Celtics held a two-hour practice before going home to get clean and ready for their team dinner Friday night in Boston.

Here’s what a number of them had to say about this year, comparisons to two seasons ago and other miscellaneous items.

Paul Pierce said the team is plenty motivated this season [1].

Pierce said he hasn’t heard any ‘experts’ picking the Celtics [2].

Doc Rivers said there’s only one set of expectations that matter [3].

Rivers said he likes where the team is at [4].

Kevin Garnett said he likes what he saw in the preseason [5].

Garnett said Tuesday in Cleveland against LeBron and Shaq will be exciting [6].
