Resign Rozier let Horford walk and let the tank begin.

Young good players don't win championships. Superstars win championships. Ainge will never get that through his head. Had the chance for 3 superstars over the past 5 years and passed on all of them. Celtics have gone from a potential dynasty in the making to a laughing stock.

I recall quite a few celtics fans posting that Ainge was planning years in advance and it was ok that he kept missing on top 5 players b/c he coveted the biggest of the top 5.


Do you think that Kawhi, George, Butler and Davis are all top-5 players?

one of these is without doubt the best player

Not that some of these posts are truthful, but the hatred of Boston is showing. Let’s grow up, ladies.

Just got a hold of Danny Ainges medical record, he's diagnosed with Hoarding Disorder according to DSM 5. Make sense considering his recent blunders of overrating his trash.

I expect WOJ, Ainge mouth piece, to put some garbage article like that very soon.

So a guy who has an unfortunate, horrible, almost career ending injury is a bum? You’re a real piece of ****. I’ll take whatever ban/suspension comes. Worth it to call attention to mindless keyboard douche bags like the above ****.

It was a clear bluff. There was a TON of smoke of Kyrie leaving in FA, and wanting to play with Durant in a NY market. All the posters here called it out.

And it's a good thing Ainge did this, because it ended up helping the Lakers. They drove Magic out after the trade deadline debacle, and the Pelicans turned down the better offer.


Danny Ainge has always overrated his assets, and leak out hit pieces letting everyone knows how he offers 100+ first rounders, plus a brothel of the finest Boston virgins for x and x trades.

Meanwhile, everyone knows that he only makes deals when it's blatant robbery in favors of the Celtics. Too bad for him that the league has become smarter about his bs and Billy King is no longer employed in the NBA.

I mean don’t they basically have the same team that was one home win away from making the finals in 2018 + Gordon Hayward?

That’s still a very good team don’t you think?

Plus now with Irving gone they can spend that money on some role players and they won’t have the drama they had this year

Not really. The reason why that team was in the position was largely due to Irving playing well in the regular season. Moreover, Horford is worse than he was couple of years ago. Finally, Irving is taking the capspace with him so they don't have money freed up. Boston is in a very bad place right now looking like a textbook definition of a treadmill team.

Treadmill time. The love able overachievers.

LOL. OK.
