Ainge is a clown. McHale handed him a "5-year contender"/one championship. Had we not traded Perk, we would've won two championships, maintained the toughness/grit that defined and made us successful, and not drastically overpaid a Sally. 

None of the draft picks he made were reaches. Which of those who turned out successful were risky, insightful picks? Bradley was touted to be comparable to Wall 12 months prior to draft. And our youth greatly benefited from learning from some of the best players the past two decades.

Incredibly stupid question.

If Wallace/Jermaine/Shaq/Perkins bodies don't explode/collapse at the most inopportune times for 4 consecutive years, we have a dynasty on our hands.  Especially after this offseason where everything was a homerun (and the only possible negative has been looking really good lately), I don't understand how anyone could possibly be calling for a new GM.

Absolutely absurd from spoiled idiots who expected to go 72-10.  This team has already shown massive signs of improvement from the beginning of the year and they have not come even close to peaking.  Ainge has earned 10 more years of job security as far as I'm concerned.

Revolution at last! It's time to clean Celtic management. Hell this team is only an experiment in futility anyway. You guys that want another ring will have to wait at least > 5 years for that and that's a conservative guess. Pierce, KG and Rondo's abilities have been wasted on 2nd rate players. Any good NBA Coach and Management Team would have had more than 1 ring with this group. I love Danny's contributions to the Celtics but has grown stale. Celtics love hanging on to failing stars. It has cost us for decades. The Celtics only had half the brains of the Jerry West era.

Perkins is so overrated on this site it's incredible. He has played horrible since getting traded.

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

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

Why does it have to be a GM? And as far as Coach, Doc is what he was a 500 Coach. He surely doesn't get enough out of this team. We keep  making the same mistakes over and over. Lack of rebounding energy, turn overs, less than average hustle, he can't scold the Team because it's a big love in there. Nobody on the Team is earning his $$.

No way we should even think about removing Ainge or Doc.  They are both very good....and one of the many  reasons for this is job tenure and relative security.   

We had a 20 year hiatus from relevancy, and a parade of mediocre GMs and Coaches to go along with that run.   We are now in year 6 of the KG era, and are still competitive - KG only comes back and signs that deal because of Doc.  How many GMs had the summer Danny did, especially after losing Ray for half the money?

No. 



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

because Danny is still always itching to pull the trigger on bad trades because he is constantly trying to prove he is smarter than Red was. Yes, he brought us a title, but he cost us at least 1, maybe 2 more.

someone add up all of Danny's personnel moves since he has been here (drafts, trades, free agent, letting players leave, etc). put a plus or minus beside each and see where we come out. double pluses (KG/Ray) and triple minuses (Perk) are allowed.

Dont compare the Perkins trade in weight to the KG/Ray moves. Just dont be that silly please.

Have whatever opinion you want about whether getting rid of perkins was a good idea, but dont compare it in significance to getting Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

Perkins was not this team's identity. Kevin Garnett was and continues to be.

no GM is perfect, but I find it hard pressed to look at what other GM's are doing around the nba and say we need someone new?

danny just had a Great off-season and people are calling for his head?

Perk trade is a plus, not a minus.

Agreed with the way green looks as of late and how perk looks. Fab melo is a big wild card.
