In my opinion, Danny Ainge brought us a title with #17 four years ago. He pulled the moves to get those players here. It is not his fault. If Garnett doesn't get hurt the next year then we win the title that year. Perkins goes down last year in the finals with a 13 point lead and we lose. Injuries seem to be a common thread here.
I am still happy compared to where we were 5 years ago. Two trips to the finals, an NBA title, and 4 straight playoffs are way better than what we had done since the Larry Bird era.
Danny cleaned up a huge mess the Celtics organization had become. Do you remember how bad we were some of those years in the 90's and for the better part of the 2000's?
