What Danny Said

Prior to the final game/merciful end of the 2013-14 Boston Celtics season, Danny Ainge spoke freely about the first year of the rebuilding season and where he sees his squad going in the immediate future. Give the assist to Jay King's Twitter account.

Agreed X 1,000,000. Brad Stevens took what could have been a 10 win team and squeezed more than double that out of half-a-Rondo and a supporting cast.

Probably a good move. Seeing how an off-comment about fireworks convinced me that Danny Ainge had found a time machine and was bringing 25-year-old Bill Russell back to the team to anchor the defense, it is good for everyone involved that he is setting low expectations and preaching patience.


RE: "I'm taking a running leap into one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes in an effort to convince Kevin Love to come to Boston. If not I'll be spending spite money on several people and pretending like I've never heard of Kevin Love."

An awesome season marked up by injuries. While Bradley's laundry list of aches and pains probably helped the Celtics lose a few more games, it's hard to build around a guy who has gotten seriously banged up every year of his career.

And just for good measure:

Yes. Yes. Yes. Well deserved.

Maybe the Tweet of the year.
