    Worst Moves in Celtics history?

    I thought this would be a change of pace.

    Im not old enough to comment on the 60s or 70s.

    Was it trading Ainges?  Trading Perk?  Billups? Joe Johnson?

    Let's discuss....

    The worst moves have to be ones you can directly say cost us a championship.

    There are a handful of moves, like the ones you mention about, that cost us 3-4 more years of being a fun playoff team... but not rings.

    I just posted this in another thread about the Ainge trade:

    The smart move in '89 was to take the Schrempf/1st rd pick offer for McHale over the Pinckney/Kleine offer for Ainge.

    Then the team should have drafted Tim Hardaway over Michael Smith like they almost did anyhow, Red changing his mind last second. The Dallas pick would have been Divac, who Celts really liked after having playing an exhibition game vs. his euro club and watched him and Dino kill us.

    Then in 1990 w/ Ainge, Shaw and Hardaway here we'd not have drafted Dee Brown but needed a PF and taken a guy like Jayson Williams, Alaa Abdelnaby or Elden Campbell.

    The 90-93 teams would have been something like:

    C - Parish, Divac
    SF - Bird, Williams
    F - Schrempf
    SF - Lewis, Gamble, Fox
    SG - Ainge, Shaw
    PG - Hardaway, DJ

    and lost to the Bulls each finals in a much more glorifying end to Larry's career

    Billups didn't become a great player until his 6th season in the league.
