Q: Which young players do you think will step up and help fill the void when Michael Jordan retires?

A: I think that it's going to be very difficult. But, I think that you have a group of young guys that can really play this game and play it really well. Myself, Allen Iverson, Kevin Garnett, Stephon Marbury, Kobe Bryant, Chris Webber are just some of the young guys who can really play the game of basketball.

Q: How much of a difference is it for you and Ron Mercer to already be familiar with Rick Pitino's system?

A: It helped me out tremendously. I know that it really helped Ron out, especially coming in and being a rookie. Having to play for a new coach would have really hurt him. It was the greatest thing that could have happened to me because it gave me a chance to fit right in my second year and be comfortable and remain comfortable. I know his system and they way he wants it and doesn't want it.

Q: Would you like to remain in a Boston uniform for the long term or have not even thought about that yet?

A: Basically, I want to be a Boston Celtic for the rest of my life. This is where I want to be and I love the situation here. I love the fans and I want to do everything possible for me to stay here.

Q: How tough is it to play at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City?

A: It is a very hostile crowd. It is a very difficult place to play but the fans support their Utah Jazz, and that is something that they like doing. It is a tough place to win. If you can go in there and win a game, it is very beneficial.

Q: How is Travis Knight working out for your team at the center position?

A: Travis is doing well. He is having his ups and downs. Travis is one of those guys who is not really a true center and plays forward, but I think with Coach Pitino's system and him being able to step out on the floor a little bit and shoot a jump shot, that has really helped him out. He has been a great pickup for us.

Q: Can you give us a scouting report on yourself?

A: This year has been a lot different for me because I've had to play with my back to the basket a lot. My success has been able to dribble the ball and pass the ball at the position I'm playing - power forward. I think I have to get a little stronger. Some games I am overmatched. There's just some minor things that I want to work on in my game, that I want to improve on and not think of. That comes with hard work and time and is all part of developing you own personal game.
