Ainge Making Decisions With One Hand Tied Behind His Back

or "We don't know where we're going, but we're making good time." I am amazed not to have seen any discussion of the terrible handicap under which Danny Ainge is working.  Ainge finds himself facing an off-season that proffers wildly disparate outcomes ranging from adding one rookie to the fourteen players now under contract, to turning over the majority...

Ainge says Kevin Garnett doesn't need surgery on his ankle

If Kevin Garnett plays next season, it looks like he will be doing it bone spurs and all. According to the Boston Herald, Danny Ainge says Garnett will simply "rest" his left foot and ankle and will not undergo surgery. I think there was some question whether he was going to have surgery on his foot,” said Ainge. “but the last I heard, which was a few days ago, is...

Breaking down Danny Ainge's five biggest mistakes of the "Big Three" era

As crazy as it may seem, Danny Ainge just completed his 10th season running the Celtics. He took over the team as they were getting swept in the 2003 playoffs by the Nets, and immediately made his mark that summer, trading all-star Antoine Walker for banged up big man Raef LaFrentz. Not exactly starting off with a bang. The next four years were bizarre. Slowly but surely Ainge...

Happy Birthday to Kevin Garnett and a Few Thoughts

Today, Kevin Garnett turns 37 years old.   Every Celtics fan today is wishing him a happy birthday. And, every Celtics fan is also wondering what KG is planning to do this season.   A few days ago, we got the good news that he wouldn't be needing surgery and that the problems he had with his feet at the end of the season should heal with rest.  Not having to face a grueling...

Welcome to part two of our Draft Grade Series. Yesterday I broke down the Boston Celtics' 2003 Draft and today we'll be taking a look at the players Danny Ainge selected the following year, 2004. The '04 Draft has a lot to live up to since the '03 version received a "B-" grade. How'd Ainge do for himself? Read on to find out. Draft: 2004Picks...

Oden still a target for the C's, but not high priority

Earlier this season the Celtics met with former Trail Blazer Greg Oden in Waltham to speak about a possible return to the court for the '13-'14 season. Oden, 1st overall pick in the '07 Draft, has only played a mind blowing 82 games in his 5 year career due to his mirage of injuries and setbacks.  The C's obviously have had a huge disadvantage when it comes to...

Which teams does Kevin Garnett put over the top? Breaking down potential KG trades

Today is Kevin Garnett's birthday. I have known KG's birthday for as long as I can remember, because I share the same one. When I was a kid I can remember looking up which famous people shared the same birthday as me, and seeing KG's name. I was probably 10 or 11 at the time, and I can remember wishing that Garnett would someday join the Celtics, because it would be...

Stephen A. Smith can't accept that he was wrong on Doc Rivers-Danny Ainge

ESPN TV personality Stephen A. Smith's wild claims the past couple of weeks have had a lot of scrutiny going his way. First he said the Boston Celtics were talking with the Los Angeles Clippers about a Eric Bledsoe, Caron Butler, Blake Griffin for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and coach Doc Rivers trade. Ok. Then, when facing the criticism over that one, he then started saying...

Your Morning Dump… Where there is ‘major speculation’ that the Celtics will trade up or down in the draft

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The Celtics have the 16th pick in the June draft, their highest since they banked on getting a top-two pick in 2007 but settled for fifth and then dealt the pick for Ray Allen. There is major speculation that...

Stephen A Smith Stirring Things Up Yet Again

We all know that Stephen A  Smith loves the sound of his own voice.   First we had Stephen A predicting a trade of KG, Paul Pierce AND Doc to the Clippers.  Um.  I'm trying to remember the last time a coach was traded.  None come to mind.  Of course he probably meant that the Clippers would trade for KG and the Captain with the assurance that Doc would leave the Celtics...

Where do Paul Pierce & Kevin Garnett rank on the list of all-time Celtics?

Their contributions go well beyond the 2008 title. If KG and "The Truth" have played their final games in green, where would they each fit among the greatest Celtics ever? We'll start with Garnett.  He's spent only 6 years in Boston, but he also changed the entire culture of the franchise.  He turned the Celtics into a defensive oriented team all by himself...

Potential Draftees: Post-Combine Edition

With the NBA Lottery around the corner and only 4 teams left in contention for the Larry O'Brien Trophy, most NBA teams focused their attention to the annual NBA Draft Combine in Chicago this past weekend. The Boston Celtics were no different; Danny Ainge was active in holding interviews with prospects, including Nerlens Noel a consensus Top 3 selection, and actively scouting...

Life After KG

Last summer the Celtics resigned 36 year old Kevin Garnett to a new 3yr/$34 mil deal. After one season, retirement is already looking likely. Ol' KG was having another impact season, being honored to start in yet another All Star Game, 15th of his career. Near the end of the '12-'13 season Garnett suffered foot, ankle, and hip injuries - almost all at the same time. Throughout...
