I love Havlicek. But to call him the leader of the seventies teams is just bs. Why are Celtics fans so determined to obliterate Cowens? Did Cowens and Bob Ryan have a falling out? Ryan has a lot of pull with the media, it seems. If he doesn't like you, watch out.

Cowens won the damn MVP. I would call him the leader. Havlicek was a leader though,but not like Cowens.

Havlicek was, to me, the classic 'second guy', which is just as important as the 'alpha guy'... like Mchale to Larry Bird...
