Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck appeared on WAAF’€™s Hill-Man Morning Show on Tuesday morning. His discussion of the upcoming season touched included some pointed remarks about the new Heat nucleus and about a new fashion twist with point guard Rajon Rondo. A transcript of highlights is below. To listen to the interview, click here.

On the excitement surrounding the opener against the Heat:

‘€œIt’€™s caused our team to focus extra hard the whole month of training camp, I’€™m sure. It’€™s really great that we get to have the opener. I guess we deserve it,’€ said Grousbeck. ‘€œWe’€™re the Eastern Conference champs. It’€™s great that [Dwyane] Wade lost last spring on our court. It’€™s great that LeBron [James] has lost every playoff series he’€™s ever played against us. I hope they’€™re listening. It adds to the pot boiling a little bit more.’€

A computer simulation gave the Heat a 70 percent chance of winning the title:

‘€œI wouldn’€™t guess 70 percent tonight. I’€™d give us 70 percent tonight. I love it. I love Jeff Van Gundy. He’€™s a very nice guy, but he can’€™t stand the Celtics because we keep knocking his brother out of the playoffs and he used to be a Knick. But he said they won’€™t lose two games in a row all year, and they will win 73 games. He’€™s made all these predictions about the Heat. I think that adds a lot of pressure. ‘€¦ Let’€™s start them off 0-1 tonight and see how they like it.’€

On the absence of Rondo’€™s headband:

‘€œHe’€™s not going to have it on. He used to wear it upside-down, as a real connoisseur would know and I’€™m sure you noticed, he had an upside-down logo, turning the NBA upside-down. And they won’€™t let him do it anymore. They said they were going to fine him for that. So he said, ‘€˜To heck with you, I’€™m not going to fine it at all.’€™ That’€™s the Rondo headband situation for you connoisseurs of men’€™s accessories.’€
