I'm not buying this story as written.  However, the guy on SoSH who posted it is a respected poster, so maybe it's a case of the person translating Ainge's thoughts skewering them.

I think the story was crafted to be "believable" to some though. Along with pushing a POV on the forums, plus general trolling.

The Tony Allen thing in the 07-08 playoffs also popped out to me, because Tony didn't even get in the game for Game 4 for more than a token appearance.

This. I mean, has anybody ever had an opportunity to talk with Danny on this board? I have once, and I can tell you he is not exactly warm and fuzzy, or particularly talkative. Count me as skeptical.

I don't believe it. That's all. Nice try though.

I doubt this report highly. No NBA GM would be this open in today's social media world.

Seems pretty legit to me. I know Perk is one of the most widely disliked players in the league. I mean the NBA players voted him the top player " who thinks he's good but really sucks". And Ray and Doc's comments were after Ray left were pretty in line with this poster.

I think this is relatively legit
