Danny Ainge.

For those calling me crazy, just think about the career DA has had associated with sport and the stories he could tell. Danny growing up as a two sport guy, actually playing in the MLB, being picked by Boston, stories about Red, Bird, McHale ect, going against Thomas, Magic, Kareem, Hakeem, Jordan, Pippen, coaching the Suns and all the wheeling and dealing as Boston's GM of course as I can imagine how many great players were so close to being signed, traded or drafted.

I know people would say Jordan but I feel that there has been so many Jordan stories already and Danny has been around and see it all in the NBA for essentially 36 continuous years.

TP. Danny has basically been involved in relevant basketball for the Celtics for the last 30+ years. From Red, a man born in 1917, to Tatum, their first pick in 2017.

Great question. Steve Kerr. Tim Duncan. Ever since Lebron said "when I write my book the Celtics will have a chapter" (+ other rumors from his career) I've wanted him to write one. Jerry West already has one awesome book, another would be great. Popovich.

I agree that DA could write an incredible book.  He would be my pick as well.

I would read a Tim Duncan book because I am a big fan of his but I feel like he's so soft spoken that his life story would be about 30 pages.

When The Game Was Ours by Bird and Magic was a great book in my opinion.

Kyrie Irving.  He's so well-spoken and thoughtful.
"As far as playing, I didn't care who guarded me - red, yellow, black. I just didn't want a white guy guarding me, because it's disrespect to my game."
-Larry Bird
