Celtics vs. Heat: Boston may not be present for banner, ring ceremony

LeBron James will be celebrating his first championship Tuesday night as the Miami Heat will raise their 2012 NBA championship banner and receive their rings, but their opponent -- the Boston Celtics-- may not be present for the ceremonies.

The ring ceremony will take place ahead of the game's 8 p.m. ET start, and Celtics head coach Doc Rivers hinted that his team may not be on the court for the ceremony and will stay on its regular pregame schedule.

Rivers didn't exactly say that his team would not be present for the festivities, but said enough to cause some doubt.
