    There is a Bill Russell quote (for those under 50 on this board who don't know who he is follow the link) in this coming Monday's IBD (Investors Business Daily) in which he says.

    "Like a team of specialists in any field, our performance depended on both individual excellence and how well we worked together......We all tried to figure out ways to make our combination more effective."

    This is depressing to think that any Piston team would pattern themselves after a Celtic team. Ugh. LOL
