I have very low expectations for Young this season. Who is he going to take minutes from? Green? Smart? Wallace? Bradley? All of them will play ahead of Young at the 2 or 3. And he missed ALL of Summe more »

I think DA had a fine plan to get Kevin Love, but he didn't expect LeBron to go back to the Cavs nor the domino effect that followed. I feel he would have found a way to outbid the Bulls. Just no way more »

Aside from Rondo there is not one player on the roster who can impose his will on an opponent. Green's got the talent, but not the a-hle disposition KG demanded from him. Olynyk may develop into that more »

It's difficult to feel good about how this offseason has gone, with the exception of Marcus Smart and gaining an additional first rounder from the Cavs. The roster hasn't been appreciably improved, an more »

I think Marcus Smart is a rookie and rookies need time to figure the game out. But overall, I like what I see. They'll make a player out of him.

And this, folks, is how Danny Ainge gives a big "eff-u" to Pat Riley and the Heat. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Posted 06/25/2014 12:10:07 EDT
Nothing short of including Rondo would entice the Cavs to part with the #1 overall pick. I don't see it happening.

In response to Mployee8's comment: Anthony can't be traded until this season is over now. So what was Danny's motivation to trade Craw & Brooks for Anthony and the Sixer pick ... two 2nd rounders in 2 more »

In response to CubanPete's comment: Ainge is gambling that the Sixers make the playoffs next season. That could happen in the EC. If it does, Ainge will be chest thumpin' that he converted Crawford in more »

Joel Anthony...wuff. Did the Warriors give us a tube of KY in that 3-way? SMH In response to Fiercy's comment: In response to Petey62's comment: Is the hope that Anthony doesn't opt in for $3.8 next more »

The last time DA said an injury wasnt serious and he expected only a few games to be missed was two years ago when Shaq went out and never came back.
The skeptic in me says: "We'll see about KG"
Posted 03/26/2013 12:30:08 EDT
Ray was a good Celtic. He just cannot defend anymore, and the C's make their living on D. That being said, I still wish he had stayed in Boston and finished up with us.
Posted 02/21/2012 10:40:10 EST
I too would be surprised if KG is dealt, but I never thought they'd deal Perk the way they did either. Again, I'm not much for conspiracy theories, but it was one year ago this week when DA dealt Perk more »

Logic says to stand pat and just play the season out since: 1) no trade is likely to give the C's enough to win the title this year, and 2) the cap space coming from expiring deals is worth a heluva l more »

I dont think DA will do anything. He'll let this play out and clear the decks for 2013. This team isn't one or two "tweaks" away right now. more »
Posted 02/16/2012 12:22:20 EST
This team starts with defense. But it hurts a lot not having Bass right now, and Ray Allen's mid to short game has vanished. Plus they are getting nothing out of Daniels or O'Neal right now offensivel more »

This road trip will be a season killer in more ways than one. I will be really surprised if they win 2 of the next 5. more »

Doc was putting an idea in Howard's head when he sent Howard out with the Big 4 at the All Star Game. And don't you think Bass is feeding his buddy all kinds of info, just as Baby and Wafer are doing more »

I don't think there is anything to be gained by "blowing the team up". And I wouldn't presume that KG and Ray won't be back next year...not yet. I don't think Ray or KG are interested in moving to ano more »

The only thing Bradley does better than Rondo is shoot the ball (jumpers and free throws). Bradley takes his game to the next level when he forces people to respect his jumper. As for the system, I fe more »

Bass is just a better all-around player. But more than just an upgrade over Big Baby, I feel we finally replaced what we lost when Ainge let James Posey walk. more »

Funny thing is that the guy still wants to try a comeback next season. I think it's crazy, but you can never underestimate the guy. more »
