Talking on WEEI, Danny Ainge touched on the issue the Celtics’ age. Knee problems have forced both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to miss time recently, and the refrain has been that the injuries aren’t “serious” and the the Celtics are being “cautious.” In explaining the task of managing the miles on all his superstars, Ainge likened it to the Red Sox managing their rotation.
“Let’s say you have Pedro or Curt Schilling, and they’re used to pitching 250 innings a year and going into the season you want them to pitch 180 or 190, maybe miss three starts and be fresh for the playoffs. That’s what I’d liken it to.”
He also praises the play of both Rajon Rondo and Tony Allen, says Glen Davis should return soon, and bites his tongue when asked about NBA officials. For the entire interview, click here.
