"What run comes on here and says is pathetic, obnoxious, meant to push buttons and in the opinions of the majority of us here RACIST and OFFENSIVE"
These latest picks go a long way towards showing Danny was always after the best players, period.
Mike, with all due respect you are not here often enough to experience run. He has said many horrible things about the players on this team. He is a troll and the worst poster in the history of this forum. You don't want to connect yourself to him.
Mike, much of this comes down to chance. The year Pierce was drafted, if Nowitzski had been available, as he almost was, he would have been drafted instead and we would have built around him.
"So forgive this old man for going off a bit when the issue of "race" is bandied about. I can tell you that nothing good comes from it in this day and age."
In general I agree we shouldn't talk about race in this forum, it's a Celtics forum, but run has brought it up again and again in the most small minded of ways. So yeah, some of us feel like venting on this thread. Dont' sweat it, it's not a frequent topic here.
I will tell you, however, that you won't solve issues of race if they are not talked about - just not in here. :)
I take offense that you think Ainge passes over white players. He really does take the best players he can. I would agree he does not have the international talent evaluation that the Spurs do, but c'mon man.
He tried to trade for Austin Croshere, he did trade for Krstic, and Darko (who quit on our team for personal reasons), he drafted Luke Harangody, Most of the players run thinks we should be playing for the Celts are not even in the league, they aren't good enough to warm an NBA bench. Last year he held up the T Wolves as the team to admire in terms of their racial makeup - they ended up being one of the worst teams in the league. Not a model franchise. Run considers anyone with a tattoo a thug. A few years ago he even said he was quitting to become a Suns fan because they played the right way. So, he quit on his own team. Now the Suns, Run's other model team, are the worst team in the Western conference. You are welcome to join him in rooting for some of the worst teams in basketaball if you like.
Otherwise stick around, post more, and we'll all move on to other topics. Hopefully these new draft picks will keep run and his bad attitude out of here for a while and we can all move on.
