On his new team, the Boston Celtics:
“They are building with character guys, guys who fit into a system that they want to run. I think that’s the way to do it now. I think the days of having a bunch of jerks on the same team and thinking you are going to win a championship (are over).”
David Lee has it right. You don’t want jerks on your team. You want guys who are willing to work, be good teammates and who will buy-in. I always ask myself when watching basketball players; would I want to coach that guy and would I want to be his teammate? Does he play hard. Does he play with energy and does he care about others? Is he happy for others success?
