I mean, weren't they supposed to do something with those assets in 2015? Do they get a pass for that? Their future assets aren't much better outside of this year's BK pick. Nobody said anything when I was clowning Ainge after the draft. So you agree that they failed with their assets as far as 2015 goes?
Ainge didn't fail at the draft, Michael Jordan failed at the draft. Ainge offered him picks to pull Winslow and MJ stupidly said no. That ain't on Danny and you know it. So no, they didn't fail with their 2015 picks at all, since they seem to be doin just fine currently.
Yea I mean it could go either way. He could swing a deal that makes them a legit top 3 team. Or they could fall out the playoffs in a blink. It's funny how perspective works. Boston is considered a good team while the teams immediately behind them like atl, mia, indy and chicago are considered underachieving.
See any upside in Indy, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta? All vet teams, lot of broken bodies, free agents, etc. Not a lot of leeway there.
Boston tho, Top 3 coach. Top 3 seed in the East. Top 3 pick possibly. 3 first round picks. The 76ers 2nd round pick. 4 other 2nd round picks. They have 27 million spent next year, with a cap that could get to 90+. The Nets, who you think aren't so bad, they're paying Deron Williams 14 million dollars next year, to play for the Mavs. And the Celtics own that pick too.
They could be a 3 seed in their conference, get a top 3-4 pick, 4 total picks in the top 32, 5 in the top 35, and then have 50-60 million dollars to spend in Free Agency, if they want?
But they aren't in any good position to do anything, in your eyes? Come on man. Any other city and you'd be seein it. You lettin Boston hate blind you, just own up to it. They are in a strong, strong position right now.
