I sometimes post on SoSH, and saw this post a day or so ago. Scroll down to post #158 (past the funny honeynut Cheerios pix)  :)

It is only a report from a "kid" who managed to talk with ainge for 45 minutes, but it has interesting points. The one about KG and rondo was especially interesting for me.

What ainge supposedly had to say about sully, gay, and others should make CB folks rethink some of their  trade ideas.

I dont know how reliable the post is, but having dealt with SOSH for a few years, I know they are down right ruthless with anything they consider BS. If nothing else, it is a fun read and the entire thread has some good discussion.

I hope mentioning SoSH doesn't violate a CB rule/code. :-X

I'm always pretty skeptical of stuff like this.  Danny has pretty loose lips if he's telling a group of random fans that there was a mutual dislike between Doc and Ray, or that most of Perk's teammates didn't like him (which contradicts everything we've ever heard).  Danny is also an idiot if he thinks "Varejao stinks" or "Rudy Gay sucks", and I'm extraordinarily skeptical that he'd call the Jeff Green situation a "debacle".  Also, the thought that there's "antipathy" between KG and Rondo seems counter to anything we've heard

Maybe this guy's son ran into an Ainge lookalike, or more likely, he's making it up.

Would a GM be so straight-shooting? As in straight up say something like "Varejao sucks"?

That said, the only thing I really cannot believe is KG-Rondo. They are seriously such bros. You know KG isn't afraid to show what he feels about people (and neither is Rondo).

Maybe Ainge and the management don't like Rondo.

I'll add my two cents on the side of skepticism. I highly doubt Danny answers questions like that even in a non-public setting.

Not to mention specific answers that don't fit what we've seen. (Perkins disliked by team, KG/Rondo having issues, etc.)

No.  I don't think it's possible that Danny Ainge is being that forthcoming about stuff that he certainly would never say to the media to a couple of random fans.

I do not believe it one bit.

Yeah, SoSH being mostly reliable notwithstanding, this seems a bit too much of a "scoop."  Hard to believe Danny would just go off like this.

Yeah I dont see him telling all his management secrets to a group of kids just to "be nice". Especially in the days of twitter and facebook.

wow. so KG and Rondo have problems? That really does not surprise me if true from that link. I said it before. You move the ball as a team like we did with rondo out and you do not need a great PG. Just a guy who can score and dish. he does not need to be a great facilitator. It would not surprise me to see rondo traded by Danny for a big man.

and yes, i agree most of it sounds like hogwash.....but the part about possible problems could be true and rondo could be up for a trade. who knows?  ;D

These dudes hate each other:



... which is why they're hanging out together outside of the team.

Here's how CSN described the relationship between KG and Rondo:

Second, it's fantastic to see KG and Rondo hanging out together. Not that it's any surprise. I think it's fair to say the relationship between these two goes deeper than any inter-athlete relationship in town. Deeper than Brady and Welker. Deeper than Lackey and Beckett. The KG/Rondo dynamic is a complicated mix of father/son, big brother/little brother, Master Po/Grasshopper and buddy/buddy. There are all sorts of ins and outs and what-have-yous. Just know that it's unbelievably special, and there's no relationship more integral to the Celtics success this season. So it's good to see them out having fun, continuing to build on their already rock solid foundation.

pretty sure that Rondo and KG might be the closest friends on the team based on reports

hard to read rajon at times. you could easily make out he and KG have issues on the floor. But not at that time off the floor clearly in your pic. DOes not mean there could not be problems we do not know about. again, who knows? ;)

Not sure what concerns me more, the article or the fact Rondo is pictured next to Snoop Dogg with a shirt that reads "High" lol

I'm sure Rondo would shove guys twice his size for fouling KG when he dislikes him

I'm sure Rondo would stand between KG and Melo at the bus if he dislikes him

Maybe Danny was just being tongue in cheek the whole time.

Sure, Perk's teammates hated him.

Sure, KG and Rondo are at each others throats.

Sure, Varejao and Rudy Gay suck.

The only way those sentences would ever come out of Danny's mouth was if he was clowning.

I only believe this "chat" if Ainge was drunk, and as far as I know, Danny doesn't drink.
