Watch: Danny Ainge was always competitive - Ainge vs. Kevin McHale 1-on-1
Danny Ainge doesn't just want to win. He needs to win. One-on-one, regular season game, playoffs, major trade, choosing the right draft pick - doesn't matter. All the same to him - he needs to win.
To paraphrase Allen Iverson: Not a game. We're not even talkin' 'bout practice. This was just a friendly game of one-on-one basketball. But this was Danny Ainge, so let's take the "just" out and change the "friendly" to "competitive", and we have it right.
The video is very entertaining, and these two guys remain close friends to this day.
