For drafting Sullinger. Everyone new this kid had an issue and he wasted a pick on him. Our medical staff should get the axe as well. You never fully recover from a back injury. We are Celtics fans here, remember Bird? Once a back goes, no matter the age of the individual, it is gone. We are toast because of this. Meanwhile Well run teams like the Thunder get Perry Jones in the draft.

Danny this is on your head.

Perry Jones?
Ezeli?

So, should teams never take risks on injury prone players in the draft?

(I can't tell if this is sarcasm, due to the Perry Jones crack.  Jones was medically red-flagged for his knee.)

EDIT:  Based on comments in another thread, I guess this isn't sarcasm.  Rather, it's a really bad argument.

"You should be fired for taking that medically red-flagged guy in the draft!  You should have known enough to take the other medically red-flagged guy who was drafted even later in the first round!"

I don't get it.

  • It's what I do! It's who I am!
Imo if Ainge should be fired, it should be over bringing back this core instead of starting the rebuilding process.

I loved the Sullinger pick as it was great value. It's not like he was a top 10 pick.

Ummm...no.

Look what the kid did before he was out for the season.  Lots of reason to look up.

Of course, there is uncertainty going forward but the kid is only a rookie.  Its not like this is the nail in the coffin of his career.

I mean, I wanted Ezelli, but I wanted him over Fab.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

I hope only imaginary real life.

These are the risks you take when you are drafting in the 20's.  Let's see how Sully returns after the surgery.

Lets see how the back takes to the surgery before we hang DA.

I remember they were talking surgery before the season started, but they thought they could do alternatives, which is the smart thing to do.

Also was it some thing Sully could have prevented? Did he feel some pain before the game and decided to man up? Why don't you throw him under the bus as well.

Funny how people Call DA a genius for drafting the kid, right until he gets hurt. Then is "Hand Him!"

Part of GM ing is taking some risks from time to time. Rondo,Bradly could be some of those risks, they turned out okay...

Oh man, come on please.

Everyone knew this and I guarentee you weren't complaining before.

If he works out he has a Kevin Love-esque ceiling.

Who else would you have drafted?  All those great contributors after him?
