Who needs Durant or Oden? You can say a lot of things about Trader Danny but you can't say he has low risk tolerance.
I would be as ecstatic as the cool-headed Tony Maz if there was anyone left on the Celtic roster besides The New Big 3 who looks like they'd belong in an NBA championship rotation (other than Rajan Rondo who would be a backup on the Spurs or Pistons) or some chips left to add such players. Free agent options are covered interestingly here. Brevin Knight and Austin Croshere always give the Celtics fits. In the meantime, everyone stay healthy!!!
Wanted: an article or two on the Celtic team partnership and their decisionmaking process. Given the old school ties, maybe they will submit to an HBS Case Study detailing their strategic 180 degree turn - said study to appear after we land 'Green 17' of course.
In the meantime, what did/does Kevin McHale see in Sebastian Telfair, not to mention Mark Blount and Ricky Davis? This column from the Twin Cities answer to Dan Shaughnessy will make him feel right at home.
If (McHale) had traded (Garnett) a year ago, he might have incited a bidding war. Instead, McHale waited until he couldn't cut a deal with anybody other than his old buddy Danny Ainge, the Celtics GM, who, without a former teammate to take his roster refuse, might have eclipsed McHale as the worst general manager in the NBA.
Instead, Ainge looks like a comparative genius, in the same way that Homer Simpson might look smart if you stood him next to Lew Ford.
