      I suppose there would be some Celtics who agree with
      the 4-1 model: Like Bob Cousy, who didn't do defense,
      since he had Russell in the last half of his career.
      Bird, of course, had Robert Parish.

      I suspect there might be some minor exceptions (Jerry
      West, Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, Bobby Jones, Dennis
      Johnson, John Havlicek, etc.) who might provide a
      benefit beyond the 4, but overall my intuition says
      your model would fit pretty well. And of course the
      model would probably need to be stochastic if you're a
      real stickler, but a simple discrete 4-1 model I bet
      would do a pretty decent job. (I'll bet a nickel.)
