Should the Celtics Call a Players-Only Meeting?

Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype wrote an interesting post today about the effect of players-only meetings on team's record. While he recognizes the two basic issues with this analysis (i.e. limited sample & correlation does not mean causality), it's interesting that on average such meetings have produced positive results. To be specific, in 10 of the cases it yielded positive results, in 1 the short-term benefit was cancelled during the rest of the season, and in 4 things took a turn for the worse. I believe that such meetings actually do work, and further statistical analysis shows that it produces significant positive results at least in the short run.
