      Imagine if TOR did this in 2018 season?

      Yes because he wanted to be with lbj.

      Of course they did. Why trade the house away for a one year rental? It doesn't make sense. For the Celtics, keep with what you have, get rid of Kyrie and make another playoff run.

    Nick is just such a Ainge/Boston hater. Why would you trade arguably your most promising player for some one who makes it clear they don't wanna be there

        Nick described Danny Ainge's meandering perfectly. That's all he ever does... Keeps the team frustratingly mediocre or one calamity away from it.

                        Boston failed in trading for Kyrie....short term it was better than IT, but it stunted the growth of the young guns and consequently they lost some key pieces because of this debacle

                          So... good no trade by the Celtics.

                            My comment would to stop current players from having or owning sports agencies themselves, or whatever, there is no more “team” in the nba, no more Anticipation of the Detroit vs Chicago regular season which was like the playoffs, no more Lakers vs Celtics, no more Heat vs Knicks, the intensity is gone, all that matters is who can vie for second place, anyway we glad that the KD did not re sign with GS, or The Klaw not joining Lakers, like whhheeeeewww... for now the next season will be better could be the best in the last 3 years...

                              Celtics weren't able to trade for George untill after Hayward signing. OKC jumped in. Ainge absolutely would have done that trade if given the chance.

                                  You guys need to put some respect on Danny Ainge's name. Danny Ainge is one of the smartest GM’s in the league. He will bring us another championship. You can believe that!!!

                                          Players should just stay where they are and try to win , if players keep moving every season its not fun , superstars Should just stay with team that drafted them and go through the ups and downs

                                            AD to Laker's experience is going to be a failure injuries couple with bad chemistry will be the main reasons he will not win any chips.

                                              Tatum is way overrated so I don't know why Danny Ainge would part with him. For a 2nd pick in the draft he has regressed. Kyle Kuzma who wasa 30th pic has put up better number and is ascending.

                                                Floyd Threat “Regressed”... Bro.. You clearly aren’t a Celtics fan because you couldn’t possibly say he wasn’t a better player his rookie year to his sophomore year. We got deeper, he had less opportunity, but skillset, IQ, and athletically improved a lot. Looking at box scores don’t tell the whole story.

                                                I think everybody forgets what the celtics offered for Paul George and they didn't even call back...

                                                  They have a phenomenal young core. Should've just stayed the course without a superstar. Smart, Brown, Tatum and everyone else that made the conference finals 2 years ago with Stephens a Larry Larry Brown type coach would've done better.

                                                                  - OKC got PG and they didn't do anything

                                                                  - Lakers got LeBron and didn't make the playoffs

                                                                  - Celtics got Kyrie and he has shown he doesn't wanna stay

                                                                  Raptors got Kawhi for one year, but was it actually a risk they took? They traded DeRozan who they already invested many years into and KNEW he was inferior to Kawhi. That's far from trading a 21 year old guy who hadn't reached his prime for a guy like AD who has injury trouble and never did anything in the playoffs. Kawhi has proven he's a playoff monster.

                                                                  I think the Celtics did good in staying put. You never know, a great deal might pop up outta nowhere and they'll be able to jump on it. All those other teams are currently stuck as non-contenders with teams that DRAFTED most of their stars ahead of them.

                                                                  The Warriors, Bucks, Nuggets, and Raptors drafted most of their guys and imo they're better positioned to make a run next year.

And what did Danny give Kevin for KG? Almost an entire team! Including Al Jefferson, who would make the all-star team (after MN traded him -- THAT'S ON YOU, GLEN TAYLOR!!), Gerald Green, who's still playing in the NBA, Ryan Gomes, a solid player, and promising point guard Sebatian "Two-Gun" Telfair. AND two first round picks. Enough with the narrative that McHale gave KG to Danny for nothing.
