SQ13#41—Most Valuable Celtic This Year

I suggest that the most valuable Celtic this year will not be a player.  This is a building year.  The most valuable Celtics’ builders will not be players but the coach and GM.  Danny must finagle the pieces and Stevens must develop, groom, and build a cohesive chemistry.  This organizational process will be far more important for the course of this franchise than this year’s...
