    How much do you hate Danny Ainge?

     he lost TA who is the one guy who can defend Kobe and cause him problems. He lost our center Perkins who is an enforcer inside for a couple of softies in Green and Kristic, guys who look good on paper but can not contribute in playoffs when the intensity level rises. How much do you hate Danny Ainge for taking away the championship that was rightfully ours? Now our team will be dismantled. The Big three could only win one championship (2008) and now we start building with only Rondo a viable young player.

    rondo and green will be great to rebuild around. much better than rondo/perk. and i was thanking god last night that tony allen was not out there to foul one of their three-point attempts at the end of the game. i'll thank mr. ainge for '08 and whatever happens this year is gravy. now is the time for the "big 3" to earn their money.

    I love Danny Ainge. One of the best managers in the league. If you really understand the business side of basketball, you will love Danny Ainge.

    You don't thank Danny Ainge, you thank Kevin Mchale to gift wrap you KG.  Just like Lakers fan thanking JW for Gasol.  At least with Memphis the core for the trade gave them a legitmate Center, a powerful forward (via trading with the Lakers players) and draft picks and now they are a legitimate team that can contend with the Spurs.  Look at Minn. they turn around and not even make a playoff once with what they got from the Cs and then they turn around and trade Al Jefferson to the Jazz.  The one and most important piece that they "wanted" in trading KG.  DA hasn't done crap. The once "Big 3" had earned their money in the 2008 season but no "thank yous" should be handed to your GM Danny Ainge...

    KG, what that old saying by the hated Yogi, "it ain't over until it's over"!!! Let's give Jermaine and Jeff Green a chance to make a difference. All we need is for Doc to throw away the so-called play book and let the guys play their game.

    It would be nice.  Considering they are collectively making 55 million this year, the same amount of Rondo's whole contract for 5 years...

    I will say this though, they need help from the bench if they are gonna go all out...maybe they are saving something, seeing how much they have ahead of them playing a 6 man rotation...

    I like him as long as he's the C's GM. That way I know he'll continue to bungle all trades that could possibly keep the Celtics relevant and a contender. Now I have to worry about OKC (with Perk) more than Boston (without). At the rate he's going, it won't be long before the C's are in the cellar.

    Why am i delirious? and why is that dumb? Did i say " Just like the Lakers would thank JW for Gasol"?  But am i wrong regarding the two deals with your Cs and Min and the lakers deal with Memphis?  Memphis is a good team that is CONTENDING toe to toe with the SPURS and now look at Minny after the trade!  They traded Al Jefferson to the Jazz and wasn't he the main key in trading away KG???  And Memphis got burned in their trade but Minny didn't?

    I agree.  And if you want to prove it, ask for ANY poster on this Board to honestly tell us that they'd love to have Marc Gasol rather than Pau Gasol.

    Minnesota got 2 draft picks, cash, Al Jefferson, and Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair, and Gerald Green (when folks though he was good) and an expiring contract called Theo Ratliff.   I think Minnesota got something more than Memphis got.

    To answer the original question - i don't hate Danny.  I think he took a huge gamble in that trade and if Shaq is not healthy (and it looks like he's not), then Danny's gamble was a bad bet.   But he got back a draft choices and a young good player in Green along with a backup Center in Krstic.   I think he may have given away a championship and I think he should have waited until the offseason to do a sign and trade, but what do I know?   I don't hate him for it, but I am disappointed in him not having more patience with the team and with Perk.

    Really??

    Traded to MN -
     Jefferson (still in league)
    Telfair (still on MN)
    Ratliff (lakers)
    Gomes (still in league)
    Green (NOT in league)
    and two #1 picks

    Traded to MEM-
    Kwame Brown (Bobcats)
    Aaron McKie (had retired)
    Javarius Crittendon (out of the league)
    Marc Gasol (unknown second round pick with ZERO experience)

    Did you mean Zach Randolph?  He was acquired from the Clips in 2009 for Quentin Richardson  - who NEVER played for the lakers.  Jefferson was traded because the Wolves wanted to get more athletic, and STUPID Kurt Rambis wanted to run the triangle.http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5376884

    So... at the end of the day Minnesota is left with Telfair whom Minny traded then got back this season and Memphis has Marc Gasol still...  You would take Telfair over Marc... ?  Plus the deal gave Memphis cap room which enable them to sign on Zach.  They did not trade to former Lakers to get Zach but that trade from Gasol Free them up 22 mils in cap space because of Kwame expiring contract as well which enable them to sign Zach... right...?  But to keep it simple... Minny now has Telfair and Memphis has Marc from the trade...  Right or no?

    I am keeping it simple.  It's YOU who are confused.  See, you wrote:

    At least with Memphis the core for the trade gave them a legitmate Center, a powerful forward (via trading with the Lakers players)


    So, in keeping it simple, tell me how they got Zach Randolph via trading with the lakers players?

    I've hated Ainge since he stepped on Rocket Rod Foster's ankle when Foster was playing for UCLA and almost broke it.

    Re: How much do you hate Danny Ainge?

    aing'e dossier of pi$$ poor work goes all the way back to 2008.  we ran the sneakers off of ray allen.  then in 2009 we ran the living daylights out of ray.  then in 2010 we ran the... well you get the idea.  never a decent back up for rondo, just half baked washouts like cassell and marberry. 

    i was not a fan of keeping posey and he's stunk ever since leaving.  but tony allen taking a powder for short money is not really excusable.  giving away erden for nothing is not excusable. 

    and the more time goes on and shak falls off the map, just keeping perkins to round out the year is looking better and better. 

    even getting rid of nate, a low pay guy, but a team spirit guy who CAME UP CLUTCH in the playoffs for us last year has really bothered me.

    eddie house had some dreadful stretches of outside shooting for some of the years we had him but he was always worth having around.

    and i have not hated ainge forever.  me and my cousin made up a huge sign (seats behind visitor bench) with "get innoculated for TREE bites" on it and a huge syringe wired to the poster board.  it only lasted a couple of mins before we had to put it away but people were rolling.

    not all players make good GM's.  aside from bringing in the big 3 and getting glen davis included in the ray allen deal for nothing, i have not really seen much i like from ainge.

    A 22 year old Al Jefferson, already an 18-11 player, for a 30 year old KG is a lot more even than a 22 year old Marc Gasol, 1.5 years away from his NBA debut, for a 27 year old Pau Gasol.
