And one which taken at the ground to double team comes -- it to -- war. OK. Okay. I fan favorite any Tommy heights in favor. It makes it a basketball we'll get back to all your phone calls when not Lou 937 WEEI but Walter McCarty. Former Celtic but it Kentucky. Diallo Walter -- back in town during a huge Celtics event coming up next month. Which will tell you about -- nice up the join us on the eighteenth the hotline do you go a day without someone yelled that mr. McCarty you know somewhere and always somewhere on the streets. -- -- -- I hear I hear -- belt with a somewhere between the two we are FaceBook or. -- -- -- are with all the reputed to have to put you know with a traditional public if all the subsequent. You -- went through a season I'm sure you watch this Easter conference final what this help the team did we were surprised Walter they were able make a run. And get themselves all the way to game seven were you surprised they turned it on and made it to that game seven against the. Among those not really really -- -- but to look KG Ray Allen Paul -- knowing you can run -- -- -- -- They're getting better than this I mean you have got to put a little while at the Roosevelt and no political and also. The plan despite guarantee is you can't teach experience and wisdom. The verdict is think who think it's about athletic group -- men and you to -- I mean if you if you know the game. You can you can be very competitive look it's a good game and how little crystal ball that. No it never come up. Welcome what are your opinion you don't -- dream team of what the Miami Heat did a few years back to put everybody together -- a similar thing going on. New Jersey who knows what Dwight Howard's gonna end up so good for the game do you think that those super teams. -- -- -- Goodell wanted that being in it would back in the know oldies. With the lakers you know can't for the Magic Johnson Kareem and Byron Scott went up to the king. No RRR. That did he -- with our team in notre -- those guys are. I mean with the felt it seemed that they. -- being. People think so nobody threw it really -- you you -- accepting stacked like that since the beginning. Of the NBA so. I think it's I think bill that was superior work were both boys go and they step thirteen. But before then there was the rule brought prepped to continue but -- just bring them back is. All of a wired articles shut -- surprised about him doing that because that's been done -- the beginning -- can of this game. But as a guy play ten years Walter in the NBA the way LeBron specifically handled it writing goes to a Boys and Girls Club -- got a city of Cleveland in their thinking okay. He's come back east for Mac and he's gonna stay here and ample take my talents to Miami as a player. Former player we offended by the way he handled that situation. The true and it I would look so good -- that way. Actually probably regrets that I wish you could dividend of the way it was you know you -- -- Up that would include that microscope is help to please everybody and -- open to everything the right way. And are pretty sure he regrets to the beltway but I've always said it's his decision to have to make a decision he wants and then. Where he won't play at all about that because the government that different ways but not sure he probably regrets it and you know looking back on. Think people look forward not up but he -- -- picked up all the back and is due to different way. There was a runner that interview recently talked about his team and now it's matured now he has Richard violence -- the -- -- -- one of the the best point guards in the game I think I am the best point guard in the game which you put Rajon Rondo is in what is left for him as far as what is that sealant. I'll pick it up ticket or the best in the game -- -- could be your best but I think he's he's up there with the men. You know you could put his numbers against anybody. Room. Political weather for what four run -- what he's what it would not being as close for the Celtics to be that the president without a good about them. Being that being that -- they are without bill. I mean I think for years he was very underrated what you bought the team -- bigger -- startled to see -- how important he really is what Cutler yes. Well what struggled with his second technical -- always know. You can be a great player so. -- is this really start to blossom in. And and really you know the so there's also talk about the people who don't do that now in a business doesn't limit -- I think the real -- is going to be. You know. We didn't have complicate -- relative -- -- doesn't know whatever whatever team -- that could -- -- in the future. No. What he does -- old cousin. Can make it work I think that's go to a bit extractor and he'll be able to put upward growth in the game. We're talking a former Celtic Walter McCarty going to be town very very cool event coming up in August and Iran adjusted to follow up bonnet. A leader -- Kevin Garnett the emotional leader for small reports Rondo is the floor leader now this team can that work going for. I think -- -- he's learned from a great group of guys but they were players in the NBA has picked -- going to work for years to look clinic is the model we were very competitive to each other. Just wait period and so when his work ethic is what I truly believe the players should. Should should be united and I don't know I really appreciate. What he's done for the so difficulties over these. On six our secure so. Optical learned from a guy like KG and watched now Paul has matured over the years. And then of -- coach Doc Rivers army's -- from the best people in the games -- out. That stuff have to rub off on the hill and I think -- a big group leader I really do. Disorder and a career ended you know you went and assistant coach and Louisville Cupertino and then. At the NBA lasted only 2010 rather with the pacers is that so when declares all what did you did you think to get credit that assistant coach and. I did 12 world -- -- -- went do you follow like the Tibetan. Villages just experience I really appreciate your home allowed me to do so in the room. Know our eyes aren't ordered this lot of we'll have young -- run -- -- was a lot of hours as -- so -- home I think they'll delete independently like about it but. There was currently there are a lot about it but I love teaching them and interact with the players look at those little mustard and not have a lot. I'm sure going from college back to the NBA you'd just such as two different styles right to different -- -- It's a very different in college you actually get to interact with the players and really -- decaying and beat these spores we look up to you. And they they cut you a rebuke indeed there are almost like your kids in the sense -- you're watching kids developing. You know -- you give them all sorts of -- and this picture that make all the right decisions. In the -- about the way this practice. And keep your musical so look different. I'm gonna go back to -- for a second how good in your Mike and Anthony Davis -- he's considered the next big thing Walter in the NBA is that a fair label put on accurate. It. I'm not -- what I consider that a bit part of it isn't coming from some cute so what has it that label and no applause so it's up -- -- the other great work difficult impractical. If you continue then they've focused and do all the things all the great players who will ultimately become the group whereas you have a great shot. -- -- -- -- -- Just enjoy the by the end you know then that he won't but. You know I think he's gonna go hand in and take it seriously and be focused and I won't become a grip setup that you can do it. Always curious to remember they actually played sell your CD moment for love on the station Michael Holley Walter -- never played some of that CD on the station what. What was your it was a -- love for you basketball or music in your life. You know what I've never I've always looked old everybody all the league decides who got the best way to -- music I had such a huge passion for both and I think that's really what what what what that's what make of that might be and they. And the more we can do both -- and welcomed on November unbreakable so I'm excited about that so but look they both think their third -- toll. -- -- -- -- -- Which order I thought well we religious saw Ray Allen and going off the Miami. They can I think the Celtics thought that he was gonna be year KG's back pierce is back and they see no race takes half the amount of money to go to Miami. Is that you know what are low rate and -- done some great things in Boston. But at the end of the day it is a business. Know everybody got to understand that you know not being not say that. Here's what we say that the media took more money at the. I'm really not really but I mean you you would gut the -- because they -- -- that went there and took less money. When they went there so. I don't know I don't know what the situation was under the rock Riverdale. Other I don't know but. So that you spoke on the board there Electra says in the day it's a business. From. If if if we're talking about the -- they won't come back but then this is the Celtics but he still looking you know the -- -- -- at home. -- also in the betrayed foaming at the Vista business I guess he felt yet dual threat for Reagan. Bill which will we can't take back the pain -- be -- for the Celtics something had -- -- solo career with Boston.
