In Response to Re: Typical Bad Ainge draft, Athletic defenders
[QUOTE]Run, Your race based arguing reflects the ugliest forms of demagoguery of American society both present and historically. If you were an important public person, it would rightly kill your career, but because you are nothing more than an anonymous poster, likely without much stature in the real world, it has not. Many people and institutions have stood tall against this, including, very prominently, the Boston Celtics, and Bill Russell, arguably the best basketball player ever; ironically, one who built his resume on his unique athleticism and defense, and, of course, enormous basketball and worldly intelligence. The only thing somewhat “normal” about your post is that you, like many others, compare white players to other white players, and black players to other black players. I never think this way, because I was taught (not directly of course) the wisdom of Red Auerbach to look at players as they are, not as they appear (skin color, from Europe, “thugs” - by the way, what’s that a code word for?). I grew up going to games and idolizing Hondo and Cowens because of what they represented as Celtics, never because of how they looked more like me than other players. I really can’t imagine a Celtics fan thinking in terms of race because that’s antithetical to everything the organization has been about from Red to now. I do not expect to sway you at all with this; instead, this post serves that I want to be known on this chat board as opposing everything you and other racists stand for.

This is not racist thought,I love all people .
This is about style of hoop. Ainge likes slow ball,thug ball= beat your man up style hoop,it is not about race.
The Mavs play team ball and play high scoring games. They beat you with offense not elbows.
Danny and Doc select the best athlete available,they do not care about skill level on offense only defense. This creates a tough thug style team,not pretty to watch . Ugly slow down foul fueled games.
Give me the fast breaking teams with great shooting anytime.
Danny Ainge = John Thompson
Take care Run
