What would be the reactions here to such a trade today?

To be fair to the center he has just averaged 17 pts, 11 reb, 1.6 blk, 0.8 stl, so he's kind of a stud. But that 1st overall pick is gold, right? That top pick will be a generational talent, no?

He's questionable, for sure.

I would buy a plane ticket and travel 13 hours just to say some moderately nasty words to Danny Ainge.

Yep.

When you are the greatest GM of all time, you get a pass.

Bill Belichick can do whatever the **** he wants and we assume he is right, because he is the Red Auerbach of his time.

Red Auerbach can do whatever the **** he wants because hes Red ****ing Auerbach.

Ainge is great, but hes not quite earned that level of blind faith.

Depends on who the #1 pick is.

If it was during the Bennett or Bargnani drafts -- drafts where there is no clear #1 I mean + where the guy you have at the top of your board can be gotten later instead of #1 -- I would be quite interested in trading down.

In drafts where there is a clear #1 = say Kyrie or Ben Simmons, I would be very unhappy.

It depends how good the center is.  If he was Robert Parish good... then of course.

It also depends on how good the consensus #1 pick was.

Many variables here.
It's about to be crazy, G.

And what if McHale had been taken 1st or 2nd?

Joe Barry Carroll was the latter kind of prospect. So was Darrell Griffith. And we traded down past both of them. Carroll averaged 19 and 9 his rookie year, Griffith won ROY. There would've been a lot of wailing and whining about that, if Parish hadn't had a great year and if we didn't win the title. A lot of fans from today would've despised trading down for McHale, I think.
