Report: Danny Ainge suffered minor heart attack Tue; full recovery expected

Per the Athletic's Shams Charania, Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge suffered a mild heart attack, and was treated, with doctors expecting a full recovery.

While the temptation exists to make a low-rent joke about the outcome of Game Two, here at CelticsLife, we wish to extend our sincere concern and support for Trader Danny's recovery.

It's also not his first, so let's hope his medical team can properly assess his condition and prevent a third recurrence -- we're kind of attached to the guy, and even as Celtics fans, we're far from alone.

There are few more important parts of a team than a capable manager, and as he's part of the heart and soul not just of this iteration of Celtics teams, but of decades of them, we cannot overstate the importance and esteem he is held in not just our fandom, but the wider basketball world.

We're glad to hear he's doing better. Let's cross our fingers and take nothing for granted - everything in this world is fleeting, and its the connections we build in it that truly matter.
