As a lifelong Celtics fan, I hate to admit it but I think the title was a fluke, a one-time only deal. You might remember that Danny Ainge, long considered a dunce, was gifted KG by his old croney, Kevin McFail. And that led directly to the Ray Ray acquisition. There were myriad other factors that opened the door for Boston- Bynum and Ariza were hurt, Detroit was imploding, Thibodeau's strong-side defensive schemes took advantage of the new zone rules, etc. Whatever. The bottom line is that for one magical season, the stars aligned and Ainge was viewed as a good GM for the first time in his tenure.
I'm here to say that Danny Ainge is NOT a good GM. Want proof? Look no further than this transaction report of everything he's done since winning the ring last year. Warning: contains names like Darius Miles, Patrick O'Bryant, Shitbury, Mikki Moore. Definitely not for the squeamish.
