However, A.I. decided that...
Danny Ainge said he would never fall into the same trap that plunged the Celtics into NBA purgatory for fifteen long years.
“ I sat with Red (Auerbach) during a Christmas party (in the 1990s),” Ainge, the Celtics general manager, told the Boston Globe in a January interview a year ago. “ Red was talking to Larry, Kevin, and myself and there was a lot of discussion at the time...

BOSTON — Courtney Lee is the same place before every game. The Celtics shooting guard sits at his locker, surrounded by empty stalls, having gotten in all the practice shots he needed earlier in the day.
