Boston had opened wide its war chest of picks to the point where many in the room were slightly uncomfortable with the amount the team would potentially part with. The Celtics made a strong final push to multiple teams in spots 4-9 on draft day. It culminated with an all-in effort in attempt to get Charlotte to deliver the No. 9 pick with Boston lusting for Duke forward Justise Winslow (the same player it coveted while trying to shuffle higher). According to sources, the Celtics' final offer to the Hornets was a package featuring as many as six draft picks, including four potential first-round selections (a combination of picks from this draft and in the future). But the Hornets could not be swayed and turned down multiple offers to select Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky. Meeting with reporters in the aftermath of the draft, Ainge hinted at his team’s dogged pursuit. "Maybe we were going too hard at it," he said. "There was a time when I thought, ‘Woah, this is getting a little out of control.’ We’re putting a lot of eggs in one young player’s basket. So I’m not frustrated. In the long run, maybe it’ll be the best."
To be fair, I think we have the right to at this point. Cody Zeller over Noel (he was the consensus first pick to many analyst), Alexis Ajinca over DeAndre Jordan (I wanted Jordan so freaking bad at that pick), MKG over Beal (we needed shooters at the time). Adam Morrison over anyone. It's too early to tell but Frank over Justice Winslow which gets drafted by the Heat of all teams. It's to the point dude, to where we can critize this group for having complete and utter awful drafts. Bismack Byiombo for Christ sakes? I'm okay with the Kemba pick actually. Even the Henderson pick at 12 I was okay with. But the other ones, man they leave one scratching their head.
When the Hell have I said I wanted to trade anyone? If you're gonna generalize people, generalize someone else. I am loyal to the players on the team usually. Hell, I don't even mind keeping MKG even though as of right now hes a bust and I wanted Beal.
