Praises Celtics org for allowing him to interview during playoffs.

Doesn’t know that much about current Bulls players, but calls Rose “a very special player” and wants him to develop into team leader. Wants him to be a complete player, and become a better defensive player. Going to ask him to work hard every day, and work on it as a team. Expects him to be a leader.

Praises Noah, passion and energy for the game, improved rebounding and free throws. Underrated passer, “he plays to win”.

Was impressed by Taj Gibson as a rookie, playing good defense. Admires “versatility and competitive spirit” of Hinrich, felt he guarded Rondo, Pierce, Allen well in series vs. Celtics.
