I’m going to go with the Celtics right now because of their experience and where they’ve been. The Bulls, they’re very talented obviously. They earned, and rightfully so, the No. 1 spot in the East. But you know, the Celtics you really never know with them. Last year everybody wrote them off, they were the No. 4 seed and they came within a few minutes of winning an NBA title. So they have guys that have been there many, many times before and they bring a lot of experience.
He’s done pretty good. I give him credit, because most guys would be very accommodating coming in. He’s got his mind set on what he wants the team to be, what we’re going to do, and what we need to do. When it’s time to point out a mistake, he points it out no matter who it is. And I give him credit for that because it can be intimidating coaching certain guys. If you have this team that’s under this huge microscope, you can change a little bit. But I think he’s a mentally strong guy and he’s stuck to his will. He just keeps going, he doesn’t worry about anything outside basketball. He’s just focused on making this team the best it can be.
