Former Celtics assistant general manager Ryan McDonough phoned into The Herd on Friday to talk about his new gig with the Phoenix Suns, but also reflected on his time in Boston.

Asked about the secret to Boston's recent success, McDonough pointed to defense, a tone that was set with the arrival of Kevin Garnett. McDonough also pointed to this core's focus on unselfishness and playing for their teammates instead of themselves.

When asked about ascending to a general manager at age 33, McDonough heaped praise on Boston's ownership for hiring him out of college a decade ago and at his former boss, Danny Ainge, for trusting him with many aspects of basketball operations. McDonough noted that this is his 11th NBA draft and that he's scouted most of the league's players, even some veterans, while they were still in high school or college.
