Ainge can't stop

Posted by shawn cassidy on February 26, 2012 at 8:25 PM



Most people who gamble are attracted by the action and excitement this form of entertainment offers, but only a small number of GM's are actually quite successful at gambling with their franchise. 

Why is it that a few can constantly make decisions that devastate their opponents while so many others fail? And what do you need to do to become successful at this extremely challenging hobby or occupation too?


Gambling can be an enjoyable pastime for some people,  when it is kept within certain bounds. Some GM's are more drawn to the temptations of gambling than others, but whatever a person’s reasons for gambling, one thing remains constant. The lure of the big win. Danny had his big win in 2007-2008. Is he aiming for that same high, and does he believe that it's the only answer?

In essence, knowing when to bet large comes to the gambler when they see the perfect opportunity, such as the blackjack player who has counted the cards and knows with a reasonable level of certainty that the next card he hits will produce that winning hand. Has Danny found the perfect opportunity? The biggest rumor suggests that Danny wants to trade youth for age. or future for the now. The plan doesn't make sense, but wrapping your mind around a gambler doesn't make sense.


However, bluffing in certain gambling situations is a necessary part of creating the right circumstances to win. This is often the case in games where players are pitted against each other, the prime example being card games such as poker. So what does that make of Danny, and the rumors? Their must be some truth to all of the rumors, but is it the current rumor a bluff? Is it leading to another trade? Ainge has made it clear that he's undecided on Rondo, and for me it leaves me uneasy.


If the CELTICS are going for Gasol. What's that mean for the Howard sweepstakes? Honestly it's not the biggest thought running in my mind, but its there. With the Celtics at 15-17, and the future unclear right now. It's an uneasy time to be a fan. We are left with. Open ended, closed sentences a few, yet countless pretences. A vastness compressesd into a space. A  definite form, without a trace. Coherently ambiguous thoughts willingly, yet incredulously sought. Silent eyes that speak.

I don't like the way Ainge 'builds' teams, and I'm not interested in continue to follow his shenanigans. So what if he DOES manage to land Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, which currently seems to be his big dream? He 'builds' teams like the Yankees have done for decades. Mercs wanted.

You can't build a team like you did in 2007 Ainge, build it right.

I don't think the Celtics can afford Gasol, Howard AND Williams.

If OKC can build a team, why can't we?

We have the best building block. I like Bass, and Green with Rondo, and you add maybe one more max player in free agency. You got something. I think the Celtics, could be in bad shape, but this summer could revamp the team around Rondo.

I love Rondo, and I don't want him to go, but if trading Rondo leads to something better okay,but I hate seeing a team ran like that.

The thing is that when we compare Rondo to other building blocks we might dream of, part of the reason Rondo looks so shaky at this point is that Ainge has been on a kind of campaign to discredit him. This in turn will lead to problems for Rondo wherever he goes. That kind of tarring and feathering means that everything a player does is looked at with questions anywhere they go. They have to walk a tightrope that few can walk in the best of conditions. It will be tough for Rondo wherever he ends up. One has to believe, I think, that talent will out.
