Yeah, this combined with the city losing the Hornets because of stupid poo is why I lost interest in the NBA for a long time. The NBA has been trying to get back to those days for years now, but it just isn't happening. Honestly one of the biggest reasons why is the way the draft is handled, the lottery is rigged horseshit, just call it what it really is.
Ainge has been desperately trying to save face after all this. We weren't the only team to decline their "offer", they tried to get the Knicks to bite too. I don't blame us for staying at 9. If there is anyone who should feel embarrassed about this, it's the Celtics.
I'd rather not continue to live in the past, but that's just me. At this point we are due for some good. I'd rather not see another season go right down the tubes in waste. I don't think we are done making moves either.
I didn't say you specifically. I was commenting on the general sentiment around here at times. It's either about how Jordan sucks as an owner, or Kemba sucks, or trade this guy, or hey let's sign this guy, and then when he sucks people pretend they never wanted him. But people want to trash a draft pick before he's even had a chance to show anything on the court. It's ridiculous.
