Two trades that Ainge gets tons of credit for when in reality:
- KG was acquired in a robbery deal where KG emphatically wanted out of Minnesota AND the GM was consummate Celtics homer Kevin McHale who gave his former teammate a sweetheart deal at 5 cents on the dollar
- Ray Allen was acquired from a Seattle team that was looking to rebuild through the draft (on the surface) and was secretly selling off any viable competitive asset to groom the team for a move to Oklahoma City

And if we're being completely fair:
- The Lakers acquired Pau Gasol in a deal that at the time was considered robbery because the president of the Grizzlies was consummate Lakers homer Jerry West. Having said that, they did get Marc Gasol who wound up being a beast himself but nobody knew that at the time

Stuff Doc/Ainge never get shit on for:

- Trading Perkins. The team didn't get another competent center until Horford, unless you count half a season of over-the-hill Shaq.
- Waiting so long to give up on the Jeff Green experiment.
- Never signing capable reserves during the entire stretch of the Big 3. Marquis Daniels? Stephon Marbury? Delonte West? 40 year old Jason Terry?

If DJ ends up a Cav, this Cleveland team would be the best LeBron has ever played for...

...and he will still lose in 5 to the Warriors.

I'd probably want to see how IT plays with LeBron before just giving another title to GS. LeBron not having to do everything would be a good change for the time being.

I bet LeBron/IT will spend the next couple of months getting used to playing together like LeBron/Wade did in Miami, then they'll finally start looking decent in late March. The question is whether that's enough time to carry momentum into the playoffs.

The fun part about the east is they'll probably also have the first two rounds to not be 100% yet.

I’m over watching them. It’s so damn boring. I have NBA league pass now and had more entertainment watching the Nets when Russell was healthy than I have any Warriors game these past two years. It’s just not exciting watching them. Jordan Bell is that dude though.

Ignore the best team in the west and the most fun in basketball, though.
