Ainge "disciplined" on trade market, not worried about impatience of fan base

The last time Danny Ainge oversaw a rebuild, it took four years. He took over a Celtics team with Paul Pierce, Antoine Walker and not much else in 2003, and began stockpiling assets -- via both the draft and trades -- until he had enough to pull off trades for both Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in 2007.This time, it appears that some media and fans are expecting things to happen a...

Danny Ainge, Celtics remain patient, disciplined

No amount of chips — and there have been some impressive stacks in play across the league — have been able to pry Kevin Love loose from Minnesota. That could change once the 30-day moratorium on the new contracts of Cleveland’s Andrew Wiggins or Chicago’s Doug McDermott passes, but for now the Timberwolves power forward is in the place he least wants to be. And the Celtics...

With the Celtics' off-season seemingly dying down (or maybe it just never got started?), I figured it would be a good time to answer a few twitter questions from the readers.

If you’re not a fan of the Boston Celtics, you could say this has been a boring offseason for the green team. If you are a fan of the Celtics, it’s been downright depressing.

Danny Ainge has moved on from Kevin Love, and so should we

I honestly gave up hope on Love once the Celtics drafted Marcus Smart, and once James signed with Cleveland. It was a nice thought for a while. Love and Rondo connected at the Red Sox game. Love also took pictures at Red's statue. It was a dream, and the deal could have happened. It had some teeth. But now, Danny is willing to aid the Cavs and Wolves in a potential deal. The...
