Dan shares fascinating stories about his interactions with legendary players like Larry Bird and Kevin Millar. We also discussed the current outlook of the Boston Celtics and Boston Red Sox; while the Celtics were on the way up, Dan questioned if they had the toughness and resiliency to compete for an NBA Title; they have now evolved into one of the powerhouse teams of the NBA. And The Red Sox...Well, the Red Sox...
