He went over time people aren't going to like you whose most hated player to ever Wear a Celtics uniform. Ever recently it's cagey right. What the last thing here yeah. While listener to why people hate him yet. You're -- to -- was always talking always generous but I could never take into once seriously enough to imagine anybody anything.

Mario -- for. -- all not true no apartment turned his game but in what are. It's one of those guys are eager to re. Not sick any change in -- at times but can't get into his time with all the way through the meeting play let's start right. What kind of like an agitator playing with stars Mario Chalmers and -- like America certificate there near the little brother along with. You know Dwyane Wade LeBron James and just got the little swagger to -- that. You haven't earned. It's funny when I was about as acute -- and off but I I never thought of that. I never thought of him as being significantly worse than all the other mean Byrd was. I'm level himself by himself god daily agent and bird were and Modano was set I said I've heard was that level to sell -- and I thought of Mikhail is being made the next level along with parish. Ancient EG maybe not be quite the same spot but I never thought of them as being significantly. Like Chalmers vs LeBron -- and the you know the Big Three I know I never thought of it that way but I was a little can't -- for some good player is it.
