 The man got us are first ring in a LONG time. Much respect for that, and with some luck we could of had at least two. Now we have seen a lot of questionable decisions. He's 53 years old now and looks much older than that to me. Is it time to look elsewhere for a new GM.

I would fire Doc way before I'd even consider removing Danny.

Which available GM is out there that you think we should replace Danny with?

Otis Smith?
Isiah Thomas?
Scott Layden?
ML Carr?

53 isn't old for a GM.

No. 



Why get rid of the GM who is good in the draft when the team is getting close to a rebuilding era?

What questionable decisions? He's been great, particularly this offseason.

Naw ... he is old school NBA at heart, I think he;ll steer the Celtics back on course .   have had my moments with Doc's style of play (small -ball) ...but I think Doc is starting to see the light on rebounding and importance of a active bigs in the paint.  Unless he wants to move the City of Boston to the West COast , it an't gonna work.

Nowhere close.  He has done a fantastic job.  It is not easy to continue to be a contender year after year without a superstar in their prime.

Still one of the best in the business, and if you ask me he's only getting better.

In Danny I trust.

No, no, no, no, no, a thousand times no.

You know why?  Because I have a memory that extends beyond the past couple of games.  Because I remember how absolutely horrible and directionless this franchise was before Danny got here.  Because I see other franchises that struggle with horrible mismanagement year after year.  Because I remember previous seasons when it's taken the team a little while to congeal, and I trust that when all is said and done the pieces that have been assembled will have us in the hunt.

I mean...  do you remember the Rick Pitino years?  You want to go back to that?  When the Patriots lost to Seattle and went to 3-3, did you call for Bill Belichick to be fired, too? 

Get a grip, people.
