I think its Wyc and Ainge, as I believe it was more important to put out our big names and pretend we could win than start the rebuilding process that needed to happen(that the casual fans wouldn't want). I assume Wyc is behind most of this.
we were 1 game from the NBA finals last year...its not like Wyc was "pretending we could win" when you were playing as well as we did to end that season and were so close to getting to the chip
when you are that close you try and go for it...unfortunately they seemed to have missed on most of their moves this past summer
On the surface it looks like we contended, but when you consider Horfords injury, Roses injury, playing an 8th seed that took us to 7 games, and Bosh's injury, we were extremely lucky we got that road. Now add in the fact that KG and Pierce are a year older...I don't think it's too hard to see that this was what would happen.
