I think I'll let Paul speak this morning:

``They don't hang up division banners in Boston, but this is an accomplishment for us,'' Paul Pierce said. ``This is the first step in going toward the next banner. We've still got a long way to go to hang up one of those championship banners, but hopefully we're well on the way.

``Being a Celtic is different. It's something you know about and you feel from the day you're drafted. You meet Red Auerbach and all the old Celtics, and you know the expectations that come along with it. I mean, you realize you're not just in the NBA. You're a Celtic, and that means more probably than going to some of these other teams. It means tradition. It means history. It means expectations. You see that from the moment you arrive in Boston.''
