Celtics Trainer Ed Lacerte Considered ‘MVP,’ Credited for Team’s Success by Doc Rivers (Video)


The Celtics' MVP hasn't played one minute this season. But he has been a busy man.

Doc Rivers spoke highly of head trainer Ed Lacerte before the Celtics took on the Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday, saying that Lacerte is widely considered the team's MVP throughout the Boston locker room.

Rivers even said that the Celtics wouldn't have come this far without the amazing job that Lacerte has done. The C's, of course, have been banged up all season, and Lacerte has been there to patch them up every step of the way.

Check out the video above to hear more from Doc about Lacerte's efforts.
