    Danny Ainge and the trade deadline

    This is an interesting story from one GM's dealings with Ainge.
    Maybe Ainge purposely didn't want to make a move but maybe he was looking for too much for his players.

    “I’m through,” the unnamed GM told FOX Sports’ Sam Amico. “Done dealing with (Celtics’) Danny Ainge. Bleep him.”

    As already mentioned, there's little doubt this is true. Poor Danny.

    I mentioned a similar thing on another post yesterday and someone reacted like how do I know what offers were?  All I know is that I heard Danny was asking way too much which in the end makes me believe that he wasnt serious about doing deals....

    Of course Ainge explored trades as a buyer and a seller.
    I bet all 30 teams did...

    You're educated right?  Media thinks everything controversial is worth writing about.  When the source is one unnamed gm?  Who cares?

    If you think you can argue with him and prove anything to him, guess again!!  After "Gina" left, this guy came on here and promised to be more respectful of the Celtics and their fans....................it's working out so well, I put him on ignore for his racial comments about Red!!!!!!!!

    Ugh.  No it means if one unnamed gm doesn't want to do deals with Danny Ainge who cares?  

    It means if one person at his job gets angry enough to say something in front of a reporter who cares?

    It means that I am sure most gms have at least one gm in the NBA they don't like dealing with.

    It means that an unnamed source in no way means that this is indicative of something that is a trend league wide.

    I feel kind of bad for you that I had to explain all that.

    I'm not saying every GM feels the same about Ainge.
    The only negative thing that came across the wire negative about a GM was about Ainge.

    Was the reason why Boston didn't make any moves because he was asking too much? We might find out soon.

    Oh I think he probably was.  

    I am just saying a story about some unnamed gm being mad at Ainge doesn't have any bearing on anything at all.

    so wat if he was asking too much? who cares?

     if someone calls and asks for Kobe, Mitch is gunna say sure, just get us a 4 team trade that brings us Kevin Durant, CP3 and Rudy Gay, and we will give up Kobe.

    thats wat a gm does, if they dont wanna give up a player u ask for a super amount, then either way you win. if they say no, you keep ur player. yes? u just made a great deal.

    Of course it does. How much of a bearing is another matter.

    Of course it does why?  What if it isn't true?  What if the "unnamed GM" was just angry and said something in the moment?  What if 5 minutes later he got back on the phone and called Ainge back because he only said it because he was angry?  What if the "unnamed gm" was the one asking for too much and he got angry because Ainge wouldn't bite?  the whole story is based on one comment that one guy  (we don't know who) supposedly made (without wanting to be quoted) without anyone even knowing the context  (Maybe it was someone wanting to trade a second round pick for Ray Allen).

    This thread is killing me.

    Thanks Snake for explaining this to posters. ONE unamed source said something about Danny and it was ran with 100 times. So now it looks like every GM said Danny was to greedy when I only saw the one. Was there more I missed? Everyone seems to think they know all the details when in reality they don't know any more about it than you or I. We have no idea if Danny fielded calls on Rondo or placed them. What is he going to say, "I made several calls trying to work a deal for rondo, but I guess I was asking to much for him" You would think by all the rumors floating around about everyone that people would figure out on the internet anyone can say anything without any proof. I may even be wrong about Dwight fliip flopping but he never denied it.

    Ainge does not come off as a difficult man to talk to.  Ainge is not a rude guy.  He may not waver in his requests but what GM should not be that way.

    Larry Bird said Ainge offered him Ray, but he wanted Tyler Hansborough and a #1 pick............that IS pretty steep, but Red always said, "if you want you have to give."
