    This Celtics team is a mess, mostly of Ainge’s making over the last two years. I think it’s about time for him to go

    Seems like it wasn’t this bad two years ago. At least you knew Bron was going to Bron and Celts and Kyrie before he imploded

    edit nvm I read two years ago on that not Bron first year in LA. But that season East was good you had you C’s Raps, Philly and Bucks

    kemba being hurt/bad really destroys that team. they don't really have a window anymore unless kemba gets healthy, too. brown and tatum are fairly similar players so boston may need to look to trade one to get better at Guard or Big.

    what i'm saying is a trade with the framework of CJ for Jaylen Brown looks not just possible, but necessary

    Danny nailed the Brown/Tatum picks but has absolutely bungled almost every other decision. It’s baffling when you think about it

    The second T was petty by the official and shouldn't have been an ejection, but Redick was trying to be a dick there. No clue what happened on the first one, other than what they said in the report.

    if he spent as much time improving his team as he did leaking to friendly reporters about moves he “almost” made the Cs might have made a finals.


    It is pretty incredible how poorly the Kemba and Hayward deals have been.

    Honestly you could really even narrow it down to the last two years. In the 2019 and 2020 NBA drafts we had 6 first round picks. We have walked away from that with just 1 player who is a suitable rotation player- Pritchard. Then the Hayward debacle- instead of getting a nice package of McDermott and Turner, we get a trade exception that Ainge will not use. Neither are great players r but that's a nice consolation package for a player that's walking. They certainly would be playing a ton for us and helping if he'd pulled the trigger.

    If you want to keep the picks, that's totally fine but you can't go 1 for 6. Then these "treasure trove of picks" that he's been so obsessed with and wouldn't part with, he turns around and gives them away for nothing on draft day (not even going to go into how bad the second rounders have been). Ainge gave away the pick that became Desmond Bane for absolutely nothing this past draft.

    What would Bill Simmons say about another GM that had a ECF level team and fell flat on his face annually with free agent signings, went 1 for 6 with first rounders in a two year period, let an all-star walk with no compensation when a good deal under the circumstances was there for the taking? The last 2 years have been an impressive display of futility and I think it's time to move on in Boston, but he keeps getting passes. Every decision he's made with this team the last two years has been a bad one and since he's wasted all the picks there is almost no room to improve.

    To be fair every decent defensive player is hurt

    But yeah it was a pretty pathetic effort for most of the game tonight

    How is that legal in the middle of a season?

    And it's pretty shady if it does happen. We're just not interviewing anyone for head coaching positions anymore? What the fuck?

    I don’t know if it’s such a great idea to promote an associate HC to HC fro within when the team was 7-24 or something really shitty like that.

    Though to be fair to even Saunders, no coach stands a chance of accomplishing anything if their top three players have to continuously miss games because of injury/COVID. Think I read that Towns, DLo, and Beasley have combined to play like 103 minutes together.
