Tom Halzack of CelticsCentral (Conn Post) asked if I would answer a series of questions for him about the Celtics and CelticsBlog.com. I was more than happy to oblige. Below are some highlights.
Tangent: Is it conceited to quote myself and then call the quotes highlights? I feel very Ricky Henderson doing that. Jeff Clark wants you to know he's a really big deal. I love me some me. Tangent over.
3. Who is the Celtics’ MVP?
Paul Pierce. They made him Captain for a reason. KG brings the fire on defense and sets the tone, but he can’t put the team on his back and will them to victory the way Paul does. Paul also had the wisdom to sacrifice his game and buy into the Ubuntu and defense-first mentality that drove the championship last year. He also plays a happy medium between KG’s over-the-top emotion and Ray’s smooth as ice personalities. Paul is a fiery competitor and cold blooded at the same time. He makes it all work so he’s the MVP.

“The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more…
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother;”
