In the video above, WEEI speaks with Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas, who won two NBA championships with the Celtics in the 1970s. Silas talks about the differences between Paul Pierce and John Havlicek, saying "They're kind of different players... Havlicek was just very aggressive running all the time.

Grizzlies fans seem to be more civil than NY fans but still fun. I love how they start out talking about how old the Celtics are and how they'll run them out of the building and then being amazed at how the Celtics are out-running them. Also every team wonders how Ray Allen gets open shots. He runs his tail off through a ton of screens. These young guys just can'...
