No. He's put together a contending team each of the last 5 years. It's on the players and the coaches to take it to the next step and get the championship


Every thread on this board is fire this guy, trade that guy, this guy sucks. Really bizarre to me lol.

I mean, is there any team that has drafted as well as Danny has?

And please, don't point to OKC. It doesn't take a genius to draft Kevin Durant. He was a consensus number 1 pick, and nobody expected him to not be drafted 1st. Getting good players from lottery picks is WAAAAY different than Danny getting good players from the late first/early second round.

Rondo, Glen Davis, Avery Bradley, etc. Can anybody think of a team that has a better track record with such low picks?

Couldn't agree more.

Actually, to take it one step further, our window with KG/PP/Judas was supposed to be 3 years. Danny has extended that to 6 and perhaps seven. That alone gives him a pass from me almost forever.

I don't want him fired, and I know I'm in the minority, but I do disagree with retooling and not rebuilding this year.

I would of been okay to suck this year and go for a shot at Nerlens Noel. I realize that is a long shot, but let's face it. This isn't LA or Miami, we are going to have a rough period at some point. Because I really doubt Ainge can pull off a KG like trade again, and even that took us being turrrrible.

  Would you have been ok if we didn't win the lottery and still sucked 5 years from now.

I will much rather have a GM who makes questionable decisions, but knows where he is going with the team (like choosing to bet on Green, because he believes that we need a big athletic SF to back up/take over after Pierce), than a GM who only wants to make popular decisions (like the Magic trying to hold on to Howard).

Quite the contrary, I hope Ainge sticks around for a long, long time.

Eventually, I hope he can find and groom someone to succeed him, to let him transition into a lifetime/honorary role with the organization. But I hope that's well off into the future.

 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.

This part baffles me. I've never heard the argument of replacing a GM for being "old". Especially when he "looks" older than a not so old 53. TP for the reach.

BTW...Pat Riley is 67, but looks about 87 to me.

I'm not interested in getting rid of a GM who is capable of making the Perk trade.

Yes, I'm admitting that we/I/Celtics are going to have to suck for a while to get good again. It's just the natural order of things. And since I didn't see us winning it this year(unless lucky injuries happen to other teams) I was ready to start the long and crappy process of rebuilding.

In my opinion it came down to not willing to delay the rebuilding in the hope that other teams have injuries.
