Just a bit outside
"He was not happy and just felt like — him and I both — came to the conclusion that he should just go home, spend time with his 10-year-old son and we’re just going to move on."
Celtics President Danny Ainge on Keith Bogans
   Keith Bogans is well compensated. But Tommy Heinsohn said he bitched at his lack of playing time — six games, close to 10 minuets a game, typical of someone receiving garbage minutes. 
   He lost it when coach Brad Stevens opted to play MarShon Brooks for the rest of the fourth quarter as they trailed and ultimately lost to the Houston Rockets. 
   By Tuesday, Bogans had been excused from the team. He was sent home despite getting paid $5 million a year for three years, largely because he was a free agent when the Nets and Celtics needed to match dollars to complete the Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce trade. 
   Before the season began, spin cycles tried to make something out of Bogans’ role in Boston. ESPN’s Chris Forsberg called him a natural leader. 
   His evidence? Bogans himself.
   ”A lot of the guys that I’ve played with — superstar, veteran guys — they’ll tell you that. That’s why they respect me, because I’ve been the same from Day 1. I come in, I’m a leader,” Bogans said. 
   My ass.
