It's time to go. The trades today make no sense at all. If we followed up fournier with AG, cool. I'm in board. At least we have a direction. We're completely stuck in the mud right now though with two soft "super stars" and we're cap strapped because of kemba. It's time to bring in someone with a real vision because what we're doing is not working

What Danny did today was move the goal posts to the offseason. I'm not ready to call for his job yet, but he better have a helluva offseason
We can be a really good team for 12-18 minutes per game.

You could put an Estonian mentally-ill hamster who has a stomach illness in charge of the team and actually have a better roster.


The team is a huge farce, and Aingey-Boy is getting tens of millions of dollars to just sleep all the time.
Markelle has Faults, Lonzo can't Ball, Jayson Tatum is the best player in his draft.

If fans keep moving the goal posts for Ainge, he's going to keep moving the goal posts for the team...

This is the cycle we've been living through for nearly two decades now.

Can't keep making excuses for this guy. He's had a hell of a run, no doubt, but it's enough now. Time for new blood.

When the next star become available and that's what this team really needs. We still have smart, can add Fournier, whos a 20 point scorer and we still have all of our draft capital. its a wasted season and nothing we could do now would fix it.

His job for life. Never seen a better steward of a franchise then him.

**** this year. Ainge has us setup to compete for the next decade. Not one short sighted move in his history.

Love Ainge.

Love Brad the masshole too. He could have easily jumped ****, but he stayed. Indy wanted him and had a godfather offer every coach would have taken.

Smart has a year left and Fournier is unrestricted this summer. I like the optimism but now would have been the latest to get value for Smart. Usually you develope young guys in wasted season, not sure that’s the case now with yet another wing needing minutes.

I don't want to hear his there were deals that jeopardized our future speech. He's been saying that for years of idle moves. So all those deals he passed up previously would have jeopardized our fight for the 8th seed? The future you spoke of is here Danny, and it's Laughable. Garbage teams have passed us in the meantime.

We would have been better off getting the higher draft pick than trying to put a bandaid on this season mo Wagner and Fournier don’t get us a title and now we’ve used a big chunk of our TPE. We all know Wyc won’t paying the luxury tax and that pretty much every move that Danny has done for the past several years has a been about the cap and he luxury tax as opposed to making moves to win a title. news flash- Wyc and Steve don’t care about banner 18- they care about making money. Anyhow it was another disappointing move in a series of disappointing moves from Danny

Draft capital? What draft capital? Won't be a pick anyone gives a rats ass about, and certainly not expecting this moron to land a pick. One of the 14s has still been jerkin it for an additional month, and Brad would rather have the red panda chick on the court instead of Nesmith. So something isn't connected properly somewhere here.

Danny’s on the clock. We can’t keep wasting Tatum and brown years. This offseason some **** needs to happen.

This is the first year since Danny has been GM with the Celtics all these years that I think it’s time for him to move on.

It’s not just the because of this season. His off season was brutal. His last 2 1st round picks at 14 have produced nothing.

Turning Carsen Edwards to SG has ruined him. Drafted a 6’6 PF was not a good choice.

Then when we got Fournier and he said we got a shooter with size, I was pretty much done with Danny. Fournier may be 6’7 but his height doesn’t translate. He rebounds worst than a 6’1 PG that can’t rebound. If Fournier can’t score for us, he is useless. We already have Kemba in that role.
I know it’s been only 2 games, but Fournier needs to turn it around fast for Danny’s sake.

I’m still standing by giving this coming offseason to turn things around but I’m losing confidence in him by the week.
