Over the weekend I went to a couple of graduation and birthday parties that consisted of eating food, drinking some drinks, and talking about whatever people decide to ask me. Of course, whenever you’re talking to someone you don’t know or talk to all too often, the universal topic to discuss is work. Why is it when people gather at a party to get away from work we insist on talking about our jobs?

It was expected that the Celtics would draft Markelle Fultz in the top spot, but now it’s looking more like Josh Jackson out of Kansas.

Through his tenure in the Celtics front office, Ainge has been the center of both praise and criticism from Boston fans, aka Green Teamers. His trades have resulted in great success, while other moves have many scratching their heads.

This leads us to the ultimate question: is Danny Ainge the greatest bullshit artist in sports right now? Continue reading
