Greg Dickerson catches up with the former C's assistant coach to see how he's settling in at the helm of the Pistons.
You know when Lawrence Frank was fired by -- Jersey -- people are actually happy for him. Friends of his called in to congratulate him. He was still good for the organization at the time and the nets lost that evidently the Celtics game as he came on. The Celtics bench now he has a second chance of being a head guy in Detroit -- Greg Dickerson. Thought he saw it firsthand last week how will you guys have been playing passively what does a coach you. Or making strides you know I think for us is we're starting to grasp what it takes for us to win. Defensively that type of intensity we have to play with -- offensively the case in the ball movement player movement that we need. And you know we're we're we're get a better feel for what did you think you do particularly well last Wednesday -- you have to stick with -- and I learned the -- book guy though we got. Fortunately I mean you know again and in play and obviously makes a huge difference. You know it's one of those nights where our guys played extremely well and and Boston didn't play as well as obviously we know they can and we we expect -- to be a lot better and -- Brandon Knight is very quietly pleased outside of Detroit had a very nice rookie season what have you seen in his development. -- just really like his DNA just does -- make that Greg is extremely hard worker. Very very bright individual. -- is very driven to become a special player and is this bond agency's one of those guys when you tell him something he really tries to apply that men and high and very diligent about the way does their job especially understand what it takes me a professional. That twenty years old is very impressive. Finally you -- lost an up close a couple of times 00 watched a lot of film as they navigate through the bumps in the road. What are you saying John Paul I think they're gonna be there at the end. Yet you have a group that because of injuries. Limited practice times new pieces that they're not where they're going to me but -- is the master of understanding how to pace pace this group. And I think now you know once again bring him back after the break. They start in a complete roster. Then they'll round into shape exactly time they need to do and I'd be very very careful about write them off not you know but especially if the league is this question now blossoming up this same you have. Not only drive of guys but unbelievably competitive and professional guys. That would like nothing else to prove everyone else strong and and they're very capable --
